I think I'll stick with Shu 2, as the seven or so iterations between the first boat and this were just trial runs, and not fully developed separate designs.

I don't think the boat will be ready for 2009 San Diego NOOD. Nationals in fall 2009 would be more realistic. It would be nice to have it on the water for a few months and sorted before the Sydney worlds.

Finally, some pics to share.
I've cut the lightening holes and epoxy coated the frames. The black part is carbon fiber reinforcement for the rudder gantry loads.

Another view. It kinda looks like a boat if you're used to lines drawings.

Yeah, it's easy to run out of clamps. As I carefully finalize the position of each bulkhead, I replace the clamps with screws. Not only does it look cleaner, but I don't have to worry about things getting bumped out of alignment.

Frames all screwed in place and braced. Backbones in position and the shear clamp...well, clamped.

Looks like you're making good progress. Let me know when you splash the Shu2 as I'd like to come see the boat and possibly go for a ride.

There has been quite a bit of progress since my last post.

The forward backbone has lightening holes, epoxy seal coats, and carbon reinf. for the mast step area incorporated. Both forward and aft backbones have been epoxy glued and filleted to the bulkheads.

All the stringers except the tangent stringer have been ripped, round-overs routed, and fitted. The boat shape looks a bit clunky in the photos because the chine logs have not been planed to the shape of the bottom. I am leaving the stingers unfastened for now, so I can remove them as needed to have access to the centerboard case.

The stem pieces have been glued to either side of the backbone. These will be shaped to accept the hull skin.

Cleats for the centerboard case have been epoxy glued and screwed to the backbones. These are the biggest chunks of wood in the boat. the fasteners are relatively large 10 x 1 3/4" bronze screws. The idea is to have the ability to absorb a lot of energy in a grounding. It's much easier to repair/replace a broken daggerboard, than repair a broken boat.

Not seen are the plywood/carbon sandwich panels for the centerboard case. I epoxy glued and screwed the starboard side on this morning.

No pics with this post, but my dad and I finished the centerboard case this morning. This was a tedious process and I'm glad to be finished. First I had to thoroughly brace the frame at the aft end of the case so each side could be free-standing. Then saw through one side, plane, file, and sand the gap to accept the thickness of the centerboard case side plate. Then glue and screw the side plate on. Next, I shaped a small cleat to re-attach the frame to backbone/centerboard case structure. Glue and screw it all together. Repeat for the other side. Somewhere in there I braced the aft end of forward backbone since it is free standing; don't want to find the centerboard off center or out of plumb. I will leave the braces on until I skin the boat.
Anyway, its done except for trimming the bottom of the case to match the fairbody. I'll take a few pics once it's trimmed. Now I have a box that will accept a UHMW cassette for the centerboard.

Next step: final fitting and fairing of the stringers and stem.

No pics of the centercase yet, but here is my first stab at rendering the sails.
