Top spin this is a running boat. We have the new 41 all CNC'ed dead true ..Beautifully finished and done..

BUT we are TRUE Custom Boat-builders this is showing the depth of the company and that side as well.


The fastening to the jig (was CNC cut also) is done very sporadically to allow some movement The system is self fairing for the most part.



The Glass/Building system in the One Off is the same to be used in the molded Apaches based on the World standard SP systems.
In this case the Ampreg 22 Epoxy/Proprietary Apache Lamanite and A LOT of Bagging.

Thanks for your interest and Best Regards

Steve is this the 47 or is it bigger? When I was there last you and about 10 other guys were working on this project so I didn't ask to many questions. Looking good, Steve.

I would like to see the keel area. How do you fill the gap between the foam panels?

Post as much as you can Steve 1, these photos of construction are my favorite stuff on OSO.

vtec

One Plus, sorry but I cannot remember nor see it on the site. Was this the 3 Step bottom then ? I vaguely remember the drawing.

Lastly was the drawing correct on the step placement ?

Thanks

sgrady:
The drawing is close but the exact vent/strake/shape/placement is not shown on any public picture yet.

I will post more as the bottom gets finished this weekend.
