With the deck now fibreglassed and out of its mould, we visited the Lightwave Factory to watch our boat come together. The catamaran’s hulls were lifted from their mould, and the deck was flipped over and then craned into position. It was very exciting to see it look like a sleek catamaran now, but at the same time it was a tad scary watching it dangling up in the air.
During our last visit to the Lightwave Factory, the main hull was complete and many of the bulkheads and furniture modules have been installed. The next stage of the build process will be the fibreglass layup of the deck. This is no small feat and will take a few weeks just to complete the deck. It has taken us a few weeks to get around to this update, so it is only next week that we will be visiting the factory again.
This is a view of what will be our galley (kitchen) down in the starboard hull. The rear bulkhead visible in the foreground is in the aft cabin.
Looking forward down into the port side hull, this is the bench where the Kawai MP11 Digital Piano will be installed.
