The 61's hull bottom laminate is comprised of two layers of 1 1/4" core-cell foam, stitched multidirectional blend of kevlar and fiberglass reinforcement and vinylester resin.  Fiberglass stringers are supported by cored web frames and six cored structural bulkheads bonded to the hull and the super structure. Carbon fiber is used locally in areas where its tensile strength is an advantage. The superstructure and decks also are built with core-cell. Garlington vacuum bags all core materials to ensure proper bonding and all exterior surfaces have an imron finish.
