Update 2018-02-10: Finally in the water! I'm impressed! Sails nicely, well balanced, lots of fun. And unbelievable how it stays in control under pressure downwind with the whole bow under water! I see the point of the bow design now ;)
Fantastic boat, thank you Bill!
Update 2018-01-21: was supposed to hit the water today, but didn't happen, some other commitments.
Ready to go exactly 500 g with 310 g ballast. I guess the rig is a bit heavy, couldn't find 2.5 mm stainless wire, so I used 3 mm...
I used the easy rig plans. Looking forward to finally sail it!!
trying to keep things aligned while the epoxy sets...
yes, this build is a bit more complicated than Bill's recommendations. Let's see how it goes. Now waiting on some more carbon tubes for the rig.
