Does anyone have detailed information on the construction of the OC's China made Zephyr's, more specifically the material (carbon) and the coating (whether it's paint or gel coat)? Also, what is the hull weight of the china made Zephyr?
I currently own a Pegasus and have successfully raced it for a season. Although I really like the boat, it is a little too fragile and tends to chip paint with the slightest hit (especially when some mofo slams into you on the start). I suspect that the automotive paint used to paint the boat is the reason behind this. Iâ€™ve paddled and raced gel coated boats for years before and never had this problem.
So Iâ€™m possibly looking into getting a Zephyr....
Any info would be highly appreciated!
PS. Please NO remarks on the chines issue :)
