Pulling the Hull on Kiwi Spirit

The project continues to progress on Stanley Paris' 63' offshore cruiser.  Here are a few pics of the hull being pulled from the mold.  The hull has been moved to Building 11 (the "big" building) for the rest of the spring as we continue to work on it. 

These photos of the move show that while the yacht is still very much a work-in-progress, its final shape is now apparent.

Between the watertight carbon-fiber bulkheads, crews will now install the interior, which has been built separately in a full-size mockup alongside where the hull now sits. Meanwhile, Kiwi Spirit's deck has been infused with resin and will be moved to the hull in a few weeks, when it has fully cured.

Launch is scheduled for early August, after which the owner plans a series of training voyages before his record attempt in November 2013.
