Haven 12.5 built with WEST SYSTEM products
11th February 2019
In February of 2019, the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building (NWSWB) will showcase a Haven 12.5 at The MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart, Tasmania. ATL Composites is proud to support this project, by kindly sponsoring WEST SYSTEM products for the build.
NWSWB Chief Instructor, Sean Koomen and a team of highly skilled alumni members are currently building the Haven 12.5 at the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, Tasmania, with the same sort of time-frame as the Dutch boat building project on 2017. The Haven 12.5 is a classic American boat design, originally created by Nat Herreshoff, and modified by Naval Architect, Joel White. You will have the opportunity to view the classic Joel White designed Haven 12.5, built using WEST SYSTEM epoxy products, as it will be on display at the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival, and will be auctioned at the end of the show to support the free, public event.
ATL Composites will be exhibiting at The MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival from February 8 through 11, with the full range of WEST SYSTEM products displayed in the Princes Wharf No. 1 building on Hobart's historic waterfront. ATL Composites, is the licensed manufacturer of WEST SYSTEM epoxy for the Australasian region. 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of Gougeon Brothers Inc, USA, the creators of WEST SYSTEM. WEST SYSTEM epoxy products are now internationally recognised as the leading marine epoxy.
