Day 2- Lay up

Today we laid up the inside half of the port hull.  The carbon we used was 5.7 oz 2 x 2 twill from Soller Composites with a 1/4" divinycell h80 core.  We placed ring frames where the forestay, front beam, and rear beam go. The ring frames will be used to mount the bulkheads for the two beams.  The laminate was then vacuum bagged to eliminate air and excess resin; essentially strengthening the part. Rush Bird from the build they did in last March also came by to see how it was going.
