Wildling construction update and photos
Work is progressing on the construction of Wildling. With pretty much all the design decisions made, the Outremer team is now busy with construction, and things are progressing well.

Notice how the two bulkheads at the bottom left of the photo span the full width of the hull. These form the supports for the aft cabin bunk. Some catamarans have what is known as an “island” bed, where you can walk on either side of the bed, which makes it easier to get in and out. Outremer does not do this, because it sacrifices strength and rigidity. Instead they use a full width section. This is one of a number of techniques Outremer uses to eliminate squeaks or creaks coming from the interior joints and furniture and it really works well. You notice it immediately when you sail on a 5X, everything is silent!
