Fallguy1000, really nice work!! How are you liking the Corecell, do you still believe this is the premium "foam" product for boat building? Jeff

Jeff-The perforations in my core would have performed better at 1" stations. It is easy to use, but I don't have enough experience to say it is better than anything else.

I used corecell scraps for the male plug and female mould, but there is no core in the beaching keel. The yellow you see is Kevlar.

I am going to need to order one more xslow and one more slow 5 gallons each and 20 gallons resin. Want to shoot me a quote? tia

I am guessing the same mold will be used for the other side and then stored if needed in the future?

Yes. The mold would be used for hull 2; then sold with the frameset and perhaps the vac table to anyone interested. The keel could be made for the other hull before the flip!

Today we got 100’ of tapes applied. One on top as the spec is already met with the bottom wrap and two on the sides. Tomorrow is sanding the top tape, prepping and taping the other side top tape. Goal is to tape n fair beaching keel by weekend. Boat will be leaving the building next week for sure. About a week behind plan, but well on target for summer completion of the two hulls.

I got a little quesy from fumes today. Might need to run some air in from now on...

As you can see; we used peelply to reduce sanding for fairing.

Yes you can put snaps in Carbon Fiber. Just don't drill holes in highly stressed areas.

To keep it light you might use a little vertical strut on aft end. Used carbon/glass windsurfing masts are cheap tubes :)

Thank you Evan. I found the listing on vancouver clist for the G32. It is pretty, but not sure I am a fan of the trailering width. But you wouldn’t have to slip it. Let me know what you end up doing. I think the money is a bit high for a daysailor, too.

The aft end strut is my thought, but the cockpit is removable remember, so the support would be gone for trailering.
