      Checking the fit of the half hulls in the mould, note the tape sticking out from the edges this is to help to pull the hull halves out. These will be removed before the hulls are fitted in the mould to join them.

      Half hulls back in the mould for joining, they are taped together using alloy foil tape on the outside, unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of this, but it is the same way as the hull was joined on the pioneer so you can refer to that build to see the tape.

      THANK YOU.Now is clear.Is a lot of work before You get the final product!.
      But from what I can see until now is great and specially so accurate.
      How thick it wheel be the hull?;how many layers of fiberglass You add?;
      I've seen in the pictures You used fist a dense fiberglass cloth and then a different fiberglass!.
      I have a question:
      -how You wheel join the 2 half in length,I mean how is going to be align?.
      Or just a upper hull is made in 2 pieces and the lower hull is in one piece in length?.
      MARIUS.

      Hi Marius
      The hull has (in order they are applied), 1x tissue, 2x 300 gsm matt, I think that your other questions will be answered by the posts I have just added. There is also a more detailed account of the methods I use on the build log for the Pioneer.

      Lovely stuff, Nigel.

      The joint line is particularly impressive - that can't be easy.
