Using the formica has made it crisp hasn't it. You'll be pleased with it I'm sure. Nice work guys.

The first of three layers of gelcoat was applied on Friday, the second went on this morning and the last layer will be done tomorrow morning, that leaves the fibreglass, stiffening, turning frames, then turn it over and repeat for the top half - separate and make the first hull!

A bit overdue for an update - sorry about that! Well we've finished the hull mould now and it was time to turn it over last Friday. We had made a pair of A frames which will also be used to tilt the mould when laying up the boat. We needed to control the whole thing to stop it turning "at it's own speed", so Kitten robbed a set of front brakes of his XJ900 and made a disc, welded the whole thing on and voila! Thanks to the very nice Paul Mcarthy at Wolf Rock (he's our neighbour) for the use of his fork lift truck - again! The Photos are pretty self explanatory I think ............

The steps are a regular staircase cut in half.
