Release Holiday Update


Our team is hard at work this holiday season steadily working on completing our 34,43 and 46 Walk Arounds. Below is a great photo of our 46 Walk Around with the Zeus PODS installed, our build out of the engine room, the deck ring cap and a nice shot of the complete deck being hoisted off of the mold. Our 46 is coming together beautifully. As you can see, the interior module is already installed and the build-out of the interior is well underway. Our 43 Walk Around is just behind her and we have already completed many of the major parts such as the interior module, helm deck and many of the small parts such as hatches and liners. More updates on the 43 and 34 to follow! Happy Holidays!

34 Stringer Grid


Our team has just completed installing the steel framing for constructing the 34 Stringer Grid. Our team will now continue construction on the first Release 34 and will shortly begin installing a completed stringer grid. Our stringer grid system allows our team to build a lighter, stronger and more rigid hull while allowing us to improve overall efficiency during the lamination process.

The 34′ Deck


The 34′ Deck

The 34′ Deck-Liner Plug is well under way. Working on it every day from the plans of naval architect Erwin Gerards are three of Florida’s finest Master Plug Builders. Construction of this piece began earlier this week (week of June 26). Currently under the ownership of Release Boatworks, this vessel will play the role of our demo boat… keep an eye out for her in tournaments and at boat shows in the near future!

The Stringer System


The Stringer System

In order to achieve a tight fit, the stringer system plug is being built in place.  The wood fixtures will be covered in formica and a perfect mold will be made from them.  The stringer grid will then be laminated on mold and will contain the complete writing and plumbing chases as well as the floors for an engine room and storage compartments.  Before the stringers are bonded to the hull, patterns are laid on the laminated hull surfaces.  Then, a high-quality bonding material called methacrylate is applied.  Methacrylate is a perfect boatbuilding material because its tensile strength is about 4,000 pounds per square inch — three times that of fiberglass laminate; however, it never gets brittle like putties and glass mat, so your hull can handle the challenging seas, absorbing and flexing without a worry about de-laminating the stringer system.

34′ Release — Takin’ Shape


After countless hours of deisgn, testing materials, prepping the surface, making inserts, and two weeks of “loading” the hull, it was finally time to infuse!  We left the hull bagged and vacuum overnight, and the next morning we set up the hoses and the manifold system and opened the first valve… 46 minutes later, we had Hull#1 — and it is perfect! With a totally sealed system, there were no resign gases to breathe in, and very little waste.  This is definitely the way to build a boat.
