Progress is realy starting to show. The cabin floor and rudder mounting area is done and all of a sudden I feel I'm left with just the dagger board, rudder and rudder case ( and some other minor details) to put an end to composite production.
Things are looking good and beating the launching timeline seems more possible than ever. Will see!

As I promised I will try to fill in the steps I completed since july 2014.
Anchor well .
The part was laminated and trimed probably in 2012. All I had to do was to glue and tape it in place. The pictures below show the process.
Precut glass and ready to laminate.

I intend to post some stuff regarding that period.
At this stage the platform is nearly finished. Still ahead are the cockpit floor, cabin top, rudder case ( rudder and daggerboard are ready to laminate). Main hull lower end is faired and ready for epoxy skim coat ( top side still need tobe faired).
Now it's time to look for a trailer and source for mast and other rigging stuff.
Close but yet so far!
Timeline is still next summer. I hope I can make it.
