Things are moving on nicely:

Kittens special turning mechanism born out of motorcycle front brakes and the ram from an engine crane - makes turning everything very controllable.

Extreme tilt to enable laminating of the centre of the mould.

Balsa going on to stiffen the mould and ensure the boat will be as straight as the plug.

As always more photos on our Facebook page which can be reached via the front page of the BananaShark website or directly by typing BananaShark into the search box on Facebook.

It's looking good, and has certainly moved on since we saw it in August.

Never did say thanks by the way for putting up with me and the kids dropping in to have a look.

Thanks

Nasher.

Can I use that for my signature!

Nasher(s) you're always welcome - I was having a nightmare with suppliers and it's still going on! Getting the right fibreglass and multilam marine ply is proving harder and harder but I think Kitten may have got it sorted this week so we should have a good supplier for a while until they swap to cheap crap again!

The boat will be epic and we have already drawn one with tubes on, so if anyone wants to order a tubed version for RB12 then get your cheque book out!
