The hull mold has been successfully released from the plug. The surface quality is outstanding, so we are ready to move on to making the actual hull!
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.
SUBC will be setup in the Cheeze courtyard from 2:30 until 5:00 tomorrow as part of the Imagine Day festivities. Team members will be there to answer questions about the team, competition, department, or really anything else that comes up. So, if you’re curious about the team, drop on by and pay us a visit.
