Today we met with Mr. Dave Whitley, owner of Fusion Fiber Marine. We discussed how the last hull was constructed, the problems we had, and ways to avoid them in this year's construction. Boy, did we learn a lot!
Much of the hull team with Mr. Whitley. Note the Il Calamaro hull in the background.
Discussing improvements and taking notes.
A demonstration model showing how we could build a spindle for assembling the core, fairing the core (like turning on a lathe), and laying down fiberglass.
Three types of fiberglass cloth: bi-cloth, mat and woven.
