We’re back!

After a summer of remote planning and finalizing the design of our boat, we are finally back in Vancouver. Those of you who follow our Instagram account and newsletter may already know that we started construction last week and that we are making great progress.

Stay tuned for a description of our transatlantic vessel design.

The stations (our upside-down building jig) are already up. Next, we will use this jig to mount the cedar-fibreglass composite that forms the hull of the boat.

 

 

FINALISING THE PROTOTYPE

Since the beginning of March, the team has worked intensively on getting the prototype ready for on-water testing. Last night, the final touches were made, and tomorrow we will put her on water for the first time. We are very excited to see how she sits in the sea, and to do some initial testing!

Stay tuned for updates over the weekend.

Here are some pictures from the yesterday’s session:
