The Saran Wrap Test

1 |  2 |  3 |  4 

[April 7, 2005]


Before we invest any more time in this project, it's time for the "Saran Wrap Test". We wrap the boat and take it out for a spin. It should stay afloat for 30 or 40 minutes. Long enough to make sure that the cockpit is properly placed and that the shape is acceptable. Below are more pics.

Weather willing, Saturday will be the day of the test.
