Finishing the First Half of the Mold

(13 days until the 2012 WHPSC)

I didn't get any pictures, but we finished laminating the side of the mold with 2mm core mat, followed by another 2-ounce layup of fiberglass. Time for a little carpentry ...

Support is complete - time to flip everything

Annie wants to move the whole operation to Monterey (where it's ALWAYS 60°F)

One half done - one half to go!
