Well we have made the date and sent out the invites…
Next Saturday will be a major milestone for us as we roll the hulls.
We should be able to make the deadline. The bridgedeck bearers have been affixed and we are currently sanding and cleaning up in preparation for fiberglassing, applying QCell and fairing.
As all this is happening, a lot of thought is going into the best method to roll the hulls. Pete has made calls to gather info from others and we feel reasonably confident about the process. The challenge for our particular site is the roughness of the ground. We will not be rolling onto a smooth concrete floor, so will have to make provision to protect the topsides we have so painstakingly faired smooth.
As well as rolling the hulls, and while we have a captive volunteer team, we will also be turning the bridgedeck and placing at the optimal position for the two of us to offer it up to the yet to be built cross beams, in a few weeks. In the meantime it will function as a sort of giant work-platform to stand on while we construct the cross beams.
Wow that’s a major step you two! We will be with you in thoughts! Looking forward to seeing the pictures.
Thank guys. Yep it seems a bit surreal to think that after this week we will be working inside our boat.
