Built by Tillotson-Pearson Inc in Rhode Island Mai Tai is a federally documented vessel. Her construction is hand laid up fiberglass laminates. Superior hull strength is acheived by a design characteristic not found in conventional Multi-Hulls. The bridge deck is incorporated with the inner half of each hull; the outer halves of the port and stbd. hulls are chemically bonded to the center portion–a preferred construction design. Balsa core is used for the hull and deck for stiffness, strength, and insulation. The construction specifications are in line with the highest standards for composite materials, including tridirectional glass, marine plywood impregnated with vinylester resin. All bulkheads and other bondings are made using two layers of bi-directional glass roving.
