after the renovation .... we have checked the weight ..... having ~ 440# on the main hull + bd part > 150# on the float + bd part + the hvf so we are having 600# together + with the rig and basic anchoring etc after extending the protest to 39' next year > we are expecting a total of 800# and a displacement of 1400# so then we can cross any ocean .... then ! galacticdesign.org
take 3 leds …. with a 33k resistance > all in series
place them strategically within your boats interior
and check wether or not your intensity is right or too low
because you can easily reduce the resistance
to make them brighter
since if you would be having a 100 ah battery ….
this power would be lasting a million hours !
cover all metal parts with a poly urethan varnish
for the prevention of any corrosion …
we got it all evened out now ….
20# floatation weight …..
10# hanging weight >
meaning 30# all of it
the titanium oxide uv cover
is all that is left to be done ….. now!

for the actual building of !
to be using just epoxy when laminating fabric >
will bring too much over all weight !
because …. in between the treads of the fabric >
there is a lot of space being filled with all that heavy epoxy !
so … we add tiny glas spheres in to the epoxy already mixed >
then this mixture will weigh only about half … over all !
we will have to > put this on first > and apply the fabric after …..
to soake up all the liquide !
