Actually, Carbon it black.. but the Stones Song would not have worked with that title.
I know it has been a while since I updated, work has me on a Ten day on and Four day off schedule, and most of those ten days are early mornings.. so between that and the weather not much of any consequence has been happening. Not to say I have not been working on Flirt, just that there has been little to see along the way.
today I got the forepeak bulkhead and the sides of the hull done in Carbon Fibre. It took longer to sand everything smooth and get it just right than it did to lay out the magical carbon cloth and wet it out with epoxy. It’s funny how that works.. all those hours and in prep to do something.. and then “poof” you did the something and it is done. Still need to do the underdeck and lay on some more epoxy to give it a good layer, but it is almost time to move further abaft towards the cabin proper.
So.. the cabin/forepeak went from this:
You have to excuse the pictures.. for some reason my phone was not being as steady as it usually is. Might have been the sunlight coming in through the foredeck hatch.
Isn’t it shiny?
