Roughwater 37

Pictures Brochure Articles



At the request of Hal Paris, Ed Monk did a redesign of the 36' and produced a more modern 37'. A flying bridge was put on, twin Detroits (a few were built with a single Detroit or Perkins) a newer more spacious hull, and more modern lines.

The high strength hull is molded one piece fiberglass reinforced laminate, with six mahogany longitudinal stringers. All stringers, bulkheads and interior structural hull components are fiberglass bonded to the hull for added strength. All metal fastenings are stainless steel with bronze fastenings used only on bronze fixtures.

The heavy duty hull construction process is by the hand lay up method with eleven alternate layers of mat and 24 ounce woven roving on the bottom, thirteen on the keel.

Interior and exterior trim is in teak, including the solid teak cabin sole. The teak decking is laid in Thiokol type sealer.

All hardware and fittings are either bronze or stainless steel. Windows and port lights are ¼" safety plate glass.
