Our first view of our boat was the fiberglass of the hull was being laid down with rollers, the mould is turned through 180 degrees as each layer of fiberglass mat and resin is applied.

We were on a sailing holiday in the beautiful but rocky Finnish Archipelago when we received some photos from Adrian….. we opened it to see our hull immerging from the mould…WOW
