Made carbon fiber planks on the Core Sound Hull.The two sheer panels were laminated with plainweave fabric to stiffen them. First the screw holes were filled and the form faired. Next, an all over sanding leveled all joints and holes. Then the corners of the transom were rounded over using a router and the chines were softened with a rasp and more sanding. The fabric was tretched using tape and staples and wet out with 26-30oz. of mixted epoxy per side. This was well worked into the fabric with a spreader squeegee.

BayHead Yacht Club
A-cats are the best, and the company was superb.
TORCH took second place. Don't know who won, SPYDER looked great, GHOST was there, TAMWOCK in new paint, nice blue and new logo also, MARY ANN, and VAPOR. Four John Brady A-cats. This is a crazy course with four classes all out together. Sandpipers, duckboats, A-cats and E-scows all sailing from the same committee boats. Just nuts when we all end up at the same mark at the same time.
John was driving, Max navigating, Henry on Mainsheet, Suzie & I had backstays. Christian made us all happy to be alive.
The film is SPYDER between races.
