The DART 22 uses a similar section to that of the Dart 16. This consists of a tortured ply ‘U’ shape which changes fore and aft into a full ‘V’ giving adequate buoyancy and a good entry at the fore foot. Above the shaped bottom there is a soft chine and flat top sides giving an efficient and handsome shape coupled with ease in construction. As with many of our other designs, the chine stringer is square sectioned and the ‘V’ gap between it and the adjacent topside panel is filled with an epoxy fillet doing away with tedious beveling and speeding up the construction process. The hull has large buoyancy compartments fore and aft and in the centre which can also be used for stowage via watertight hatches. 6 to 7 sheets of 4mm plywood are used in her construction and these may be Exterior grade. Rudder details are also shown on the drawings.
