Wharram Tiki 8m Catamaran hull Getting Started

Today was our first day of construction on the Tiki 8m. We had some stuff to move around in the shop to get ready and then the material showed up and we started waxing molds and spraying gelcoat.

Below , under the tarp is the mold for the interior liner .
Here we are starting to level up one half of the hull mold.

Here we have leveled up the mold and braced it off. Tomorrow we will  dust it off and wax it thoroughly.
Then we will spray it with gelcoat and apply the outer skin and reinforcing fabric.

We have the skin coat in these hatches and will apply the biaxial fabric in the morning.
All in all we had a good day.
