Shaping the nose of my catamaran hull

The bow of the hull up to this stage is only a flat piece of wood. The design calls for putting foam and make a shape that looks nice and functional.To construct this i used some scrap / left over foam from my hull construction. These are "pasted" and secured to the front of the hull. Altogether I used 4 layers of foam. The foam is then shaped with a grinder and then I applied 2 layers of 600/225 biaxial and one layer of 300 gm CSM.
After the nose is glassed, it is sanded down again ..to that stage where it will look nice from 50 ft!

Meanwhile I have started filling up the holes in the hull. these holes were drilled into the hull to provide support of the hull panels to the bulkheads during the construction process.

  1. Looks great! You're rapidly catching and passing where I am on my romany. I did the stems at the end of last season. It's still not warm enough here to use epoxy, but I've just started working on installing some electrical and fresh water systems, now that it's warm enough for me to be outside.
