Now that your close to the water Gary ponder my anti-flight underwater para sail for the anchorage. If you weight a heavy tarp section with light chain etc....on the edges and have each end fastened to a ama with a nice u under the main fuselage you'll only fly when you want to. Looks great !

Well, Sid is in the water this morning because large tides have arrived which would have covered the beach so I shifted round near to where Groucho Marx is moored.
There is still plenty of work reinforcing beam/main bulkhead with carbon laminates and same with ama/floats connections, then fairing, then the small cabin. At the moment Sid is only lightly laminated; stuck together really.
That underwater para sounds a very good idea, Cav but actually the wide trifoilers are not really a problem when afloat, if all the foils are lifted ... but it is a different story when the tide has gone. That is when the damage occurs in savage winds. The AC45's sit on rollers which is an excellent solution. Maybe I could make sand skis to allow the platform to skid around in shifting gusts.

Nice!

Sid is really looking good. Gary, What do you use for a finish, and how are those strange daggers built? You seem to be quite productive, I would still be sanding. B

Great, Gary!! The foils look really good and the boat is superb. Gary, before I ask this I want you to know I searched the thread a bit and found nothing-so: how did you build the foils-one off or mold? what materials?

UPDATE-Sorry, Gary-I found it in post 117:
"I'm talking white cedar strip core and laminates of carbon, not full carbon layup; this is a backyard build after all, in the B24 tradition, as per original philosophy. Anyway you're getting too far ahead, I still haven't skinned the main hull. There will be plenty of changes."

Here's the very first stage of the J foils; started the curved area then when cured and shaped, lot of shaping and sanding, scarfed the top sections on then heavily laminated with uni directional carbon full length each foil.
Finish on foils is two pot Altex Devoe and the hull is one pot similar, nothing special, hand applied.

Thanks, Gary. Any idea when she'll sail the first time? Best of luck - it's an impressive boat!
