This is a very exciting week for the team, and especially the MECH team, as the boat has been in for the first coat of primer. Already we can see that the new boat is going to look amazing when it is painted. The paint job is scheduled to be done by Thursday, so we will keep you posted on how it looks when it’s back from painting. When the MECH team have not been busy sanding between the primer coat, they have gotten the bow-bumper ready for manufacturing and continued the work on the keel and rudder.
The other subteams have been busy getting ready for installing electronics and software in the final raceboat, so this week have been full of refactoring and fixing the last things needed before the on-water testing can start.
