Hull = complete!

Just so you know, we now have our hull completed thanks to Adrian and Mike. They did a great job on the carbon fiber layup and the hull was finished in short order Thursday afternoon. Because of the excellent construction it looks like we make save more than 50% of the weight of last year’s hull ( which had a few issues with the layup and ended up needing way too much paint and resin coating. This Saturday workshop we can move forward with the mast and boom completion and with getting the deck ready to go on the hull.
