Pressing on!

Haven't posted for some time but work has been going on a steady and daily basis, sometimes more visible others not so that much but still many hours put on. I estimate by now it takes about 3 hours out of 4 to make get something concrete done. If that is what it takes than so be it.
Since last post the storage space under the front berth has been painted ( 3 coats) and the remaining half is now glued on as well as de dagger board web. Next come the fillets and tape.

Just ordered some vacuum film to laminate de fore beam mount inner laminates. It's the only way to get a strong structure here given the intricate details.

So much yet to go and already working on the carbon mast design. It sounds a bit crazy ( and it has all the ingredients to be just that!) but I thing I may have found a way to make a carbon wing mast with no need for the diamonds. Can I do it? Well I'll have to! Purchasing a carbon mast is absolutely out of my budget and I guess one can't sail without a mast and I'm not settling for less than a wing.
