My boat has one of those. it's seamless near as I can tell. We've run aground a few times but have never hit a rock or log dead on. there are 2 or 3 massive stringers across the small bilge but there is nothing that indicates some sort of mechanical connection. Someday to find out how it's made, I'm going to Call Rudy at D & R. It seems he's last surviving expert and former employee of Oday.

Merit! go sailing! nice up there where your at!
