Ready for Bulkheads and Floor

The crew was mostly off to lunch so I had a chance to get some good shots of the inside of the hull. As you will notice, the stringers are molded in making the hull and stringers one piece. The areas where the port lights and hawes holes go are of solid (not cored) fiberglass. In the left picture you can see where the two sea chests will be. The wide keel is also very evident in these pictures. I was hoping that the bulkheads would be in place, but I think that may not happen until tomorrow. On either side you can see the bulkheads staged for installation. These were vacuum infused on a flat table and then precision cut on the CNC machine. If all goes well, they should be able to be bonded in without any pre-trimming being necessary. We have our fingers crossed. Below is the forward lower floor being infused. They are nearly finished and by tomorrow it should be ready to bond into the hull.
