Aha!  Slowly figuring this attachment thing out.  So we got to the garage and puttered.  Gave the boy some lay up tips and tricks.  Built the sides for the sponsons.

Today I fabricated a pair of Divinycell panels that will make up the chines.  The interior side is a single layer of 6 oz glass and the exterior is 19 oz carbon.  The picture shows one panel before I applied the peel ply.  I intend to add a layer of 6 oz e glass cloth after I install the panels on the boat, so the peel ply removal will enable me to do this without any surface prep and resultant damage to the carbon weave.

It's been awhile.  I just got back from Antarctica and finally spent afternoon with my boy designing and cutting out the fore sponson decks.  We made a pile of sanding dust out there today.

This boat is looking incredible.  I hope that it performs as well as it is looking.

Looks terrific, great work chaps. Over here we can occasionally buy large Lexan lampshades in smokey grey. A section cut from one of these makes a really swish looking windscreen, I think it would look great on your boat as a finishing touch if you could find one.  Over here they are often sold at places selling restaurant stuff and sometimes are dumped when places are refitted.
Sport should be dangerous - without danger it is only a pastime. And, recycling wood makes good boatbuilding sense.

Your boat looks nice! Maybe you can post a picture of the bottom? It would be cool if you had air traps to give the boat some lift.

Air traps are there.  We have glassed the deck.  My next step is to flip it and sand and glass the bottom.  Pictures to follow.
