Looking like a boat now

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.

Photos below, but more photos are in our photo gallery.
