Had dinner with Hilton and Melva the other evening.
Hilton was keen to show me his 1:10 scale model of my SPINDRIFT design (their name) for them.It has been ballasted to float on the waterline andhas pwer and radio control set up.I can tell you it was heavy! Has dive weights as ballast.
Note no rubrail on the starboard side yet.

Fully sanded and the first filler coat applied.There had to be quite a bit in both bow areas due to the hollow there. But generally quite [pleased and keen to sand further and gradually get ready for glassing. Bought the 600gm doublebias with chopped strand matt when I went thru Auckland.

All molds (Now spelt correctly!) completed. 13 in total, spaced every foot. But I am spacing them 320mm. Tomorrow will do the transom.Then we can see what she will be like with them erected.
The notch is for the kelson.She sure has hard bilges!
