The work goes forward according to schedule!

Jun 3, 2013 | OQS News

The work with the carbon made rudders and the curved daggerboards has gone forward with expected result and progress.

Today the daggerboards were tested in the cassettes for the first time. An exciting moment as the tolerances are only a few millimeters on each side and the curvature shape is increasing the needed precision in work.

It was a relief to find a perfect match once more. The work will continue with final surface work and afterwards the installation of electrical lifting mechanisms.

The hulls has now been painted in pearl white and covered with plastic for protection. The waterline was painted  this afternoon in metallic blue.

Low cost with compromised quality reflected in the result is not always the desired outcome. This was recognized already hundreds of years ago by a great American “ The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” ~ Benjamin Franklin 1706-1790.
