Construction Update #12

A lot more progress for this update. The interior cabinetry is coming along well, and the longitudinal beam between the hulls has been installed. The fairing work that covers the joins between the molded sections is also being done.

This week I received the documentation from Outremer I need to complete the registration process with  Australian Shipping, which will give Wildling Australian nationality on the high seas. The application documents are on their way to the registration office in Canberra.

Longitudinal beam installed. We needed to get a more robust version of this beam as an option to handle the additional loading from our sailplan. You can see the attachment points on the beam for the jib (forward) and the storm staysail (aft).

This photo gives a good view of the connection arrangement between the longitudinal beam and the horizontal beam.

View looking at front edge of the port hull. The knife edge design cuts through the water with very little drag.

  1. Great set of photos. The character and style of Wildling is starting to emerge. The boat has a lovely feel.
