Third Layup Complete - Stringers are now glassed in and the two Longitudinals have just been been added along with the first layer of the transom. The "V" cut into the bottom of the transom is so that a drainage bung can be fitted through the GRP without have to cut through the wood of the transom.

The First Picture shows the central drainage duct that is glassed into the base of the hull, this has holes drilled down its length and allows any water to drain through the hull to the back once the bulkheads are in place.

Then some pitcures of the bespoke GRP fuel tank manufactured by Osprey that is glassed into the hull. We have now moved over to a Weema style fitting for fuel senders that used a screw in sender rather then the older 5 stud plate fitting.

Bulkheads

The Bulkheads are now fitted. Console and Rear Bench / Splashwell are in the moulds.

Next step will be to temporarily lay down the deck then mock up the console and Ulmans so that plates can be bonded into the deck underneath to bots the Ulmans to.

what is the fabric drapped over the stringers and bulkheads? It doesnt look like CSM. Is it an illusion or is it bumpY?

I asked this when I went to see Time Bandit being built....

There are 3x 450 gram standed matts bonded to a fibreglass cloth that is draped over the 3" Marine ply bulkheads and onto the deck, the reason the cloth is taught is to give the strongest bond to the deck.

Deck is down and front bow locker / tube support glassed in. This is a key feature of the Vipermax as it give an extremely secure fixing point for the tubes at the front.
