Here comes an update on the build. Almost one month passed without being able to do much at all, but now i am back at it.
I have had stuff delivered to me so now i have stainless nuts and screws, 2x15 inch finboxes, and im starting to shape the board and laying some carbon.
Here comes some pics of today and yesterdays progress. 4 layers of 600g carbon has been laid on each side of the wood mast, the second side now curing. The carbon builds 3mm on each site, which will result in 3mm+13mm+3mm so a total thickness of 19mm. I will add some more, thinner, carbon later to finish off so probably around 20mm in the end.
Im pleased with how the shape looks, and it is great to have Demian to help me out with the layup.
Starting to lay first half, DIY support for the layup in the shape of an old metal profile from a shelf i think. Masking tape as release agent =)
First layer done, edges not trimmed yet. Peel-ply pattern is visible
Nice and trimmed
A nice and thick layer of carbon.
Laying second side, Demian showing how its done. Resin with some silica to make it denser.
The cuts. 4 layers of 600g on each side. 2 layers straigt/90 degree, and 2 layers 45/45 degrees. wood-90-45-90-45. No uni available, so normal weave will have to do.
Mr Mitu Monteiro stopped by to do some modifications on his f-one prototype. Cool to see a "real" hydrofoil live, not a lot of them around here. Two masters in one shot, Demian and Mitu =)
Next up: board re-shaping and fuse-strut-mount plate connection.
A big thanks to Revhed for helping me out with ideas, dimensions and do's and dont's!
