80′ Power Cat Nears Completion at A. F. Theriault Son

A.F. Theriault Son, one of Canadas largest privately-owned shipyards, is currently completing a 24 meter (80 ft.) power cat that combines traditional craftsmanship with the latest high tech materials and production techniques.

The order to build the latest boat was awarded to AFT following the success of a smaller (60 ft.) power cat ( Hayfu I) that was built for the same private owner. Called Hayfu II, the new vessel is basi-

cally a more sophisticated big brother.Key elements of the power cat concept is that it provides a very high space to waterline ratio and offers excellent stabil-

ity. As the owner s passion is for bone fishing, it was important that the vessel should have a very shallow draft. Despite its size, Hayfu II will have a fully loaded displacement of 63 tonnes (70 tons) and will draw just 1 meter (3 ft. 6 in.). To achieve this AFT has made extensive use of lightweight sandwich composites based on Divinycell core materials. Infu-sion molding was used for flat areas such as the bulkheads, decks and interior panels whereas strip plank construction was chosen for the hull. The strip plank method involves applying Divinycell core in the form of planks to temporary frames to create the hull shape. This technique is a very cost-effective and fast method of producing a one-off boat as it dispenses with the need for a mold.

DIAB Technologies has been heavily involved in the project from the outset providing extensive laminate engineer-

ing for the entire boat — hull, deck and internals. In addition DIAB Technologies provided detailed engineering solutions for areas such as the internal bulkheads, the large unsupported aft deck, and the bridge deck. The large deck areas required special attention due to the headroom requirements. Unique solu-tions for the support structures were engineered to maximize headroom while maintaining the required structural integ-

rity. The large aft deck even supports up to two tender boats. On the processing side DIAB engineers were on site to provide core infusion technology training for seven members of the AFT team. The training program included an overview of the technology, details of vacuum bagging, resin technol-

ogy and manifold design. A total of ten carbon fiber/Divinycell sandwich bulk-

heads and floor panels were constructed during the nine day training session.

Infusion trials underway at A.F. Theriault Son for the bulkheads of the new 80ft power cat.
