Work is progressing on Wildling! The hull sides are now out of the molds and more of the bulkheads and floor structures have been fitted. Another big thanks to Matthieu at Outremer for sending me these photos!

  1. Great photos. Very explicit. Neat and tidy workplace. Great to have this insight into what will be underneath the finished surfaces – will be useful when servicing and maintaining.
