Sailrocket update

Paul Larsen and co finish the male plug

Thursday December 12th 2002, Author: Paul Larsen, Location: United Kingdom
Hi to everyone, here is the beautiful shape that we have been slaving away building for the past few months (for those of you who are not aware, it's the main hull shape of our attempt at the outright world speed sailing record.... sort of a sailing drag boat).

Many have offered advice and maybe we could have done it quicker but nonetheless we didn't compromise on quality. The plug dropped free as sweet as you like and the mould looks fantastic.

The male plug you see here represents the shape of the final hull and sure looks petite. There's not much room for me to fit in the transom. Perfect really.

There is still obviously a long way to go but that's fine as like with many things, the well coined phrase 'half the fun is getting there' applies.

Thanks to those who have helped so far.

Hey-Ho, let's go.
