MATERIALS PRICES UPDATE

July 13 2021

We caught up on Zoom this morning with Anthony Basilone from ATL Composites for an update on availability and pricing on composite materials. To sum up the main points:

• Epoxy prices have increased and may continue to increase due to a shortage of the base chemicals from suppliers, especially in the USA and Korea.

• For now prices of PVC foam are stable but are under pressure and could start to move at any time.

• Shipping has been significantly disrupted due to Covid. This is confirmed by a number of manufacturers I have spoken to in recent days and materials shortages are causing major problems for suppliers and builders alike.

 

Over the next couple of weeks we will be working with ATL Composites (Australia) and VDL Composites (Europe) to review our DuFlex kit prices. There may be some changes due to the increase in materials prices and the panel specifications.

The takeaway: If you're planning to start a build project any time this year or early next year; start planning now.

 Dan Fidock's Fugazi with Scott Duncanson at the helm set the pace in the OMR division of the Multihull Solutions Regatta in Phuket taking 2 wins and a third in a challenging first day of racing punctuated by rain squalls and calms. Fugazi came to Thailand with a history of multiple wins at Airlie Beach Race Week and the Australian Multihull Championships as Mad Max and later Ullman Sails. Racing finishes Monday July 12th and you can find the official results on the phuketyachtclub.com web site.

ANOTHER COOL CRUISING ADVENTURE ON VIDEO

Thanks to Andy and Greta Baker- owners of Chincogan 52 Catchus for sharing their Queensland Coast sailing adventure on video. 

Catchus was a familiar sight in Western Pacific and Asian waters under her original owners Julian and Sandy Way and she's probably one of the most travelled of the Chincogan 52's.
