GTO39 keel

Posted by on Jan 30, 2016 in News, Series

Fixed keel for GTO39 being vacuum epoxy laminated. This is done in order to ensure lead ballast is completely insulated form water, avoiding contact between aluminium keel, stainless steel bolting and lead.
Still a few layers of quadriaxial cloth and we can start fairing.
