Video: TP52 flipped


Some unusual goings-on outside TheDailySail office window
Flipped yes, but on dry land. The video clip shows the TP52 in build at Richard Faulkner Composites Ltd in Hamble, UK being turned over ready for the next stage of its build. The carbon/nomex hull, weighing in at around 850kgs, has been faired and expoxy primed and now, the right way up, will have the engine and some additional interior components installed. The deck is then to be fitted later next week. The boat, designed by the Palma based pair Javier Jaudenes and Lieven Theys, is due to be completed in the spring, with the keel and mast arriving at the end of March. The crane used two lifting hooks from its single jib to rotate the hull over before it could be lowered back down onto its trolley and wheeled back into the shed.
