 About the project

All 4 laminations are complete and the slab is epoxied into place. A pedestal still needs to be added to transmit force down from the slab to the keel. The little red circles show where air holes have been drilled in the frames. These allow the air in the ballast chamber to move forward as the water fills the chamber up. There will be a small pipe with a valve at the bow which allows the air to leave the chamber altogether. Without these, the air would be trapped and allow the water to slosh around – not good!
