In For Painting

At UBC SailBot the new sailboat is well underway to go in for painting on March 21. We have partnered up with the nice people at Ferreira Collision Centres to get the sailboat painted this year. In the last week we have been keeping the MECH team very busy joining the foredeck and the maindeck while prepping the hull for painting. They also performed a float test of the new boat down by the ocean, and not counting some small holes we had to fill in, our new boat floats perfectly. The remaining job before March 21 is to get the deck and hull joined, and do some small detail work for the paint to look as good as possible. We will not give out the color of the boat just yet, but we can comfortably say that is gonna be one of the nicest robotic sailboats out there.
