Progress is slow at this stage, must be the winter thing, dont feel like doing much.

The plus has come back after 2pack painting so this weekend I managed to get it in the parting board and wax, pva coats and the Gel coat has been applied. Hope to have the first half of the mold done by the weekend.

Sean did us a section. The first wing is only a bagged test wing. The next will be molded to get a true section minus the bumps and hollows from bagging.

Well the day has finally come. Tomorrow we are making a trip to wellington for the maiden of the PMS 2M, the day is forecast to be a little light but at 3.7kg it should be ok. Its been a nightmare build with everything that could go wrong went wrong, so lets hope the maiden is better. Its only the prototype so we will see. Hope to DS is in the afternoon if all goes well. We should get some video with a bit of luck.
