Construction Update #8

Lots more progress this week. The deck section has been prepared and lifted on to the hulls, ready to be bonded together. Wildling is really starting to look like a boat now! Thanks again Matthieu for these excellent photos.

    • We’re really happy with everything so far. Even though François is in Miami for the boat show this weekend, we have been discussing construction details via email and finalizing a few things. The Outremer team is doing a great job of keeping on top of everything and keeping us well informed of the progress.
