The build has started!

Some exciting news, I’ve decided to start building the hull using  the Racing Sparrow design (hull only, not the Rig) with a few modifications as I feel we wasn’t getting anywhere with a custom hull design. We’ll test and test this boat vigorously and at the end if we think it’s not suitable for the ocean going event we’ll get a newly designed hull sorted.

Anyway, on to the first couple of pictures (sorry for the poor light, it’s a dark rainy day here in Leicestershire).

The first 3 bulkheads secured to the temporary backbone.

A few more bulkheads secured, also the first strip plank attached. As you can see, the strip plank doesn’t have a smooth curve so I’ll attach some more bulkheads.
