Peter,

Great photos and progress, it looks like a TW28 already. Peel ply looks like a good improvement to the build.

Congratulations.

Cheers,

S.D.-

TW28 LUKA

This is where we stand after 250 hr of work. One should take into account that we do not work at home and we cannot leave any equipment at the building site. So perhaps the real building time is about 20% less.

I accidentally deleted the first TW28 LUS album, so the first pictures are no longer in the new gallery which also changed location. (As far as I remember the software didn't ask to confirm the 'delete', but they say machines do not make mistakes, so ....). Anyway, the TW28 LUS album is now at : http://gallery.bateau2.com/thumbnails.php?album=660

Big glassing week is coming near. There are very few pictures and discussions about glassing big hulls with multiple layers. 'Wet-on-wet' doesn't seem an option to me as we cannot reach across the hull from the side. Now I think we will just use peel-ply. Not the cheapest way, probably the fastest and the easiest. We'll see, suggestions welcome. Nothing has been very difficult up to now, so what's coming will be OK also.
