Phantom 18 Phantasm

Hi Guys,
Picked up my Phantom 18 with Merc 225 project today.
The boat has not been run for many years and has been outside in the sea air for ages.It has 81 stamped on the build code on the right of the transom, age matching to the serial number on the motor. Looking inside I think it is a Kevlar constructed boat,(please see photo) are there many of these around and were many made?
Does anybody recognise it or have any stories?, would be great to find out a bit of history!. Should make for an interesting project!, thanks.

Looks like standard woven glass to me.
Any more photos of the inside?

I take it youve been busy then! Looks good, what no. is that?
Looking to get some aramat in about 300g if it exists. Can get hybrid cloth but no mat backing on it, and 300 mat is too heavy for what I would like.
Know anywhere I can get a 150/200g mat?
