After a cold spell in the weather and more shop setup, Hull #8 is rolling to get through her mold faze.
Trunk, and mast step all in , now comes the mirage of deck and hull.This day allways seems like a big day.
You spend weeks fussing over detail and then one day ,Boom! the deck goes down and the inside is never to be seen again.
Shop is warm, Boat is happy..

You and Kim look like you have been busier than Santa's Elves! I love watching the boat coming together. So simple- at least from my perspective. Keep up the good work. Will my sleigh be ready for Christmas?

The boat comes out of the mold with an Epoxy primer so we are one step closer to paint.
But it looks good right here. ( I'd sail with this and see you at the Bar.)

Things continue to progress nicely on Hull 8- soon to be USA 1191. Yesterday Kris tested a new technique using divining rods to find the centerline before installing the rudder gantry cassette. Very interesting to watch.

The boat should be ready for post curing tomorrow and painted by week's end with delivery to the owner for rigging on Monday. Looks like it will be done precisely on schedule. Great work Kris and Kim. I can't wait to sail her at the Midwinters- assuming I get her rigged in time!

Like Joe said,
post cure happens tomorrow a bake of the hull sets the resign and gives it a 10% more tinsel strength over the whole structure.
We weighed the hull tonight and she came out a wopping 49.5 Kg. this thing is a rocket and it hasn't even seen day light let alone water.
(oh yea, Sepo 109lbs.)

Kris & Kim,
As I start building yet another of the Shu designs, I can't help but marvel at the beauty and simplicity of construction of the H2/B6. If I weren't addicted to building my own boats...

Shu:

I always like your compliments and observations. Simple, light and stiffer than my pre-preg B5 (USA1162). Oh yeah, fast(er) and way cheaper too!

Did you do a structural load and response experiment on the global hull structure to verify that statement?
