Here's Freddy putting his new boat together for the NSW Championships.  The boat went well and felt fast, coming third overall.  See you at the Nationals in Gippsland Lakes.  New boat price list to follow.

Impulse Hull Shape Update

Here is the hull, ready for waxing and mould production.
Ross, Browny and Freddy are all very happy with the hull shape and fairness, with Ross doing a great job of the hull.  It didn't need much fairing.
Ross describes the hull shape as being ''quite full in bow and mid sections, with a nice transition to a straight run aft.''
Browny reckons it should be good in light winds and be able to carry big sailors across the wind range, with its full mid, super quick down wind, with the round but straight aft.
Check it out and you can comment down below, if you want to.
Next update in several weeks, when the hull mould is complete and  the first hull is under construction
