VALIANT 40
Built in 1980 by Uniflite, USA
Designed by Robert Loon

CONSTRUCTION
The Valiant 40 has a very strong and thick hull made from hand laid fiberglass. The fiberglass deck has a balsa core. The hull-deck join is described as being robust and forms a box section with the molded in bulwark, which is through bolted and covered with a teak caprail.
Interestingly, the skeg protecting the rudder is not part of the hull molding, instead it is constructed separately in steel and encased in fiberglass before fastening to the hull.
Rather than the usual one piece interior pan lining favored by most production designs, the Valiant 40 interior is traditionally built by fiberglassing bulkheads and interior fixtures directly to the hull giving excellent access to check on hull and deck leaks.
Teak to cockpit

The boat was extensively refitted between 2001 and 2003. The gelcoat was stripped away completly and the GRP was treated with several cycles of washing and drying with a vaccum hot machine. Epoxy was applied, followed by Gelshield International at the hull. Finished off with Epoxy filler and new paint.
