Ahh! We’ve been dreaming about this for over a month now, and it’s finally a reality. Thanks again Cree and Berkeley Marine Center for helping us with composites.
……….Begin photo montage.
Laying up the cuffs and straps. Carbon and Glass.
Close up of the main load bearing strap. Few air bubbles in the last layer of glass, but the carbon laid up beautifully. Frankenpole! Pad eye is for the platform stays.
Getting the pole sliding like butta.
It works. In theory. To the boat!
Fitting went well with just a few glitches to work out.
In all her glory.
We still need to add the spectra stays, setup the screecher and spin attachments, and get a sail up to make sure our load testing works in the real world.
Much thrust… great success
