How "identical" are they. What differences have you found with the construction and finishing?

David they came out pretty close, mine (yellow) somehow came out 4 mm narrower but 55g heavier (which I believe was due to me experimenting with 6oz E glass) I will get a bit of that back after RMG install as the newest version are 32g lighter than the old style. Idk, we are measuring and certifying the hulls tomorrow. I am planning (hoping) for roughly 180g of corrector weights on each hull, we shall see lol. Honestly at this point, I will be pleased if they float. Tired

Here is an image of what I think will be the aft deck design. Now I need to see how it will extend through the bow.

Light day for maiden, but sailing was achieved.

looking good David!
One thing I would keep in mind; the boats are not that big, and it is easy to loose a beautiful detail because of overdoing it. No criticism, and obviously also taste dependent, but in my opinion less is often more.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing that beautiful wood becoming a yacht.
In the meantime I am trying to save my newly built Ellipsis hull from the scrapyard, but that is an other thread.

Looking good. Certainly beats our climate at this time of year. Are you sure you call this winter?

FYI ... be aware of too much “Deck Bling” turning into sheet line snags ... causing servos to bind or brake the deck bling ...

Maybe consider deck bling that is REMOVABLE for sailing and replaced for display ... a happy balance ??

Just something to consider ... ??
