Title: Arima Design Specific Information by Model
Post by: Danno on January 30, 2011, 11:04:18 AM
There was some wood in every Arima up through the 2012 model year. 

The wood was cut into smaller sections and glassed in so that resin is between all of the pieces of wood.  What this ensures is that even if someone changes something out and does not properly fill a screw hole, only a small area can get water to it.  You cannot lose your whole deck to water, only a 6" by 6" piece.  On the front of your Arima there is wood but it is cut into even smaller pieces up there 1.5" x 3.5" approx. 

If there was no wood in your Arima, there would have been nothing for us to bolt seats into or attach screws into.   

The transom is made up of two pieces of wood with resin and glass between them as well as resin putty to seal it all up.  The stringers were changed out in the very early 80's as those were much more prone to getting wet, even though they were coated in resin.  (The coating could not hold up due to the torqueing of the hull cracking and letting water in.) 

Hope this clears up the wood question.
