Building of the hull shell started in mid-November 2012
Final layers of wax so the carbon won't stick ... then on goes the black shiny stuff ...
Port rudder location
Late November 2012. First layer of carbon on, then fitting of foam core material
As on the deck, higher-density foam for high-load / slamming areas. Slot is the daggerboard location
Foam glued and sealed with epoxy, being vacuum-bagged into place
Then surface re-faired
9th December 2012: foam and fairing pretty much done
... with nice attention to detail, great workmanship.
Then the outer skin of carbon went on
Fairing the hull before undercoat
Undercoat after yet more sanding and fairing ...
Fairing and undercoat finished just before Xmas 2012
Lifted off mould, preparing for hull weighting and turnover, January 2013
Hull turned over 16 January 2013. Weight 387 kg (incl. fairing and paint).
