Making the first float half

I made a PDF-file after I finished the first float hull half. It is published on Farrier's page .

Edit march 13th: One issue not addressed in this file is the search for the right screws to fix the thin (10 mm) and light (Divinycell H60) foam to the battens. I ended up using German screws; Assy 5 x 30 mm with a washer from the company Würth. These screws have assymetrical treads as the name imply and have a much better holding force than any other screw I tried. Switched to 5 x 25 mm on the fourth float half as will be published later.
