This is just a quick announcement that SUBC will be present at E-Fest 2013 at the Vancouver Public Library on March 23rd. If you’re interested in the team or engineering in general, feel free to drop on by and check out the event. More information can be found here.

Hull Mold Progress

The mold is complete and in the progress of being taken off. Here’s how it looked before being removed. There are two layers of 1/2 oz. chopped strand mat, two layers of glass cloth, and four layers of 1.5 oz. mat. The black colour comes from the tooling gelcoat which makes up the inside surface of the mold.
