I have posted some photos that Mark took of the windward hull being
built. Pretty incredible. Derek has managed to get a compound curve
from the flat foam panels, in a similar way to tortured ply.
Differences are that the foam can be much thicker (we used 12mm/half
inch, could have been any thickness), more compounding can be achieved
as the foam will stretch and it is quicker and easier. The hull was
glassed inside below the waterline the following day, and outside
below the waterline the day after. The deck is being infused
tomorrow. The cabin and other bits the following day.
