Getting really close

Still a few details to go, and bottom paint.  And a lot more details.  But very close to see the water now.
(PS sorry about the poor light conditions, but the pictures were taken 11:23 pm.)

Getting closer

So - I need to gather a bunch of people to help me assemble the boat again.  Hopefully this week-end.

Modifying second float bow

This was written some time around easter, but I did not succeed in publishing it.

I never got around to collect any objective data on how my new float bow performed last year.  All available time was put in to sailing, and I never even got my instruments calibrated.  However, no adverse effect was sensed, no significant difference in the tendency to nose dive, but I had a definite feeling that the boat retrieved much better from nose dives.  So now it's time to make my self a symmetric trimaran again.

Extending workshop, enjoying Aurora Borealis

Due to the need for a larger workshop to finish my friend's mast, we started an extension last year, but the progress have been extremely slow.  However, the concrete for the floor will come tomorrow, new wall are now isolated, and lights are mounted.  This means that the modification of the second float bow will start soon.

Last years sailing season was extremely short for me, and hence, sailing will be prioritized over modifications to the boat this year, and the C-foils may have to wait another year.  Further progress will decide.

Insulation and levelling.  Ready to pour concrete.

When I got home tonight, I was entertained by a beautiful aurora borealis.  Did not have a camera at hand able to capture it.
