Gig progress

Much progress today, the foam arrived early so it was straight down the hut & crack on. Sheerline is adjusted slightly & sheer battens fastened on. half the stringer battens fitted each side.

Tried a section of foam core to see how it lays & it wraps round really easily & takes a degree of compound curving.

Rest of battens go on tomorrow.

Heres a shot of the sharp end, she has a nice bit of flare to help sea keeping.

I entered her in the Great river race last night to catch the early bird discount.
Bit of a leap of faith, boat not actually built yet, no trailer to carry her & no trained crew.
Nothing like a challenge!
