front beam bulkhead

We have now a new supply of carbon and foam, so today we did do the front beam bulkhead, they were waiting on the biaxial carbon. Now it is waiting on the form frames when they get ready but there are plenty of other things what we can do, so we don't have to sit still ;-)

We have a new shed to make the main hull. The nice thing about it it is 3 minutes away from our home. Yesterday I disassembled the strongback and moved it with all the wood stringers to the new location. Today I assembled the strongback and made it longer. First we cleaned the floor and put some hardboard panels on the floor to keep it clean and to clue the strongback on. Friday we also did get some carbon, epoxy and foam panels, today we put the foam panels on the top floor so they are out of the way and they can be cut there to. I also made some extra TL lichts.

aft beam mount reinforcement

It took me the hole friday to make the molds for the reinforcement, saturday we made the first step with some UD, today I filled the hole with some HD putty and carbon offcuts. Fetske came with a clever idea to cut the carbon in small pieces to take the herbs scissors. Saturday we also went for a look at a shed.

another set of panels

Sunday we made some more panels and I fit the block in the daggerboard case. This week I get a new supply op biaxial carbon so we can make the bulkheads for the front beams. Last week I went to a friend to make the form frames. They are put in the computer to be cut with a waterjet. So when we can rent a space we are quick in setting up the frames. At this moment we make as much stuff as we can to cut the time in the rented space.

More panels

We did some other three panels, cut the compression bar in four pieces and I gave the back folding struts some extra layers of carbon.

How the compression bars are fit

Started with the main bulkheads

I started this weekend with laminating the main bulkheads. Yesterday we did two entrance panels, today we did two after beam bulkheads and a head bulkhead. They all are cut in a rough form so I have some cm to spare before I cut them out exact.
