"Excerpts from Cruising Worlds Review"
Tusen Takk is designed by naval architect Bob Johnson's tried and true formula: moderate displacement, a versatile cutter rig, and a modified full keel with substantial cutaway forward and a sleek run aft to the rudder - Johnson's so-called Full Foil Keel. Preserved also are comfortable accommodations and a carefully orchestrated layout.
The 350 is designed and built to ABS standards; it's also CE certified Category A (unrestricted offshore use) for the European market. All of this points to a meticulous, stringent set of construction parameters. The hull is built of solid triaxial fiberglass using vinylester in the outer layers to curb water penetration, then polyester behind that. It is laminated by hand in conjunction with a pressure-fed resin impregnator, and stiffened with an integrated molded-in structural grid. Island Packet's proprietary gel coating system (PolyClad) allows the company to offer an unprecedented 10-year limited warranty against blistering. The deck is cored with rot-resistant PolyCore foam to retard water penetration; fittings on deck sit atop raised platforms molded into the part and are backed by integral aluminum plates. Typically, attention to detail at the tooling stage is superb and that is why components such as this can be rendered so professionally.
