The T40 is a classic boat built by Bruce King. The Talaria 40 or T40 Jet was named from the trademark winged sandals worn on the ankles of the mythical figure, Mercury.
The T40 is engineered with Hinckley's patented DualGuard composite construction. The skin coat is made of chopped E-glass mat and low-shrink, vinylester resin, while the outer skin beneath the skin coat, where no mat is used, is made of DuPont Kevlar and E-glass. The core incorporates aircraft-grade balsa and high-density foam and the inner skin is 100 percent T-700 carbon fiber.
