Day 4

13 lbs, 15oz!  Today an outer port hull was built and the inner port hull was pulled from the mould.  The outer port hull today was a more labor intensive undertaking.  Illustrated by the pictures, it can be seen that more complex reinforcements were applied to the outside.  They were placed from beam to beam to reinforce standing position while trapezeing, and for the chain plates.  Also the same as all the other parts, the forestays and beams were strengthened via rings frames.  MAS epoxies were a pleasure to work with; the ability to control the cure time is great.  Thanks to Harry Fendt for the photography and thanks for following the project, stay tuned for more updates!
