Ischnura – Dragonfly 920 Hybrid Trimaran
Ischnura, a Dragonfly 920 hybrid folding trimaran, is a high performance flying machine capable of sailing at 20 knots and required a mini refit and repair following her annual survey.
Her carbon fibre rig was un-stepped, given a full rig survey and had a custom stainless steel burgee pole fitted, prior to re-stepping.
The starboard hull was dropped off its out riggers and carried into the workshop where Fox’s undertook vacuum consolidated repairs to the lightweight, foam-cored laminate, prior to it being filled, faired and repainted to match the existing hull finish.
The highly loaded stainless steel rudderstock had started to develop stress cracks around welds and was removed to allow full inspection, reinforcement webs added and its bearings replaced.
Ischnura’s owner was delighted with the work carried out at Fox’s:
“I just want to thank you and your team. The jobs were really well done and completed quickly. All your guys were great and a pleasure to deal with.”
