Barracuda Live Demo at Sao Paulo Boat Show

19 October 2001

For 3 years in a row Barracuda Technologies, Brazil will develop a live demo construction at Sao Paulo Boat Show from Oct. 17th to 21st. At this time the Engineering Department of Barracuda will infuse a 16ft jet boat with kevlar and carbon fiber. Boat will be powered by 2 x 175 hp water jets. The structure will be a full sandwich part having the core special grooves to improve resin flow during the process.

“We expect to have the boat built in 8 hours, including hull and deck. The work will be split during five days show length and will be a good chance for boat owners to know about new sandwich close molding techniques” says Jorge Nasseh, president of Barracuda Technologies. “This demo will show builders a more efficient and economical process to develop boats for the foreign market due high part quality and competitive labor cost in Brazil”

The demo will be running by a group of laminators trained by Bararuda Technologies and will have materials supplied by Brunswick Technologies, SP Systems, DIAB Group, Aerovac and DuPont. More info please contact
