Thanks for the encouragement Gents!!
Hama - Just as soon as we get back from Dortmund, thoughts will be turning to starting the design of Dalaro  :-)) .  I think I have figured out how she will go together......
 
Howard - We hope to be there in May... Need to speak with Brian and let him know....
 
Been experimenting with producing our own graphics.  Laser cutters can cut very precisely when carefully set up but the biggest problem with graphics is the material used - PVC. Poly Vinyl Chloride.  It is the Chloride part that causes us the problem.  When burned - as when cut with a laser - it gives off deadly chlorine gas....which is not good for the lungs and not good for the laser machine as it is highly corrosive.  However, we have found a supplier of Chlorine-free vinyl and this is what we have used.  It feels, looks, cuts and sticks just like the normal PVC graphics but wont kill us in the process!!!
 
Anyroad, graphics have now been applied - well, all the main white ones that is......need to get some black vinyl to add the name and port of registry on the stern flanks.  I don't think it has come out too badly!

Stunning work Carl, she's come a long why since I saw the prototype hull at Wicksteed last year. Keep up the good work and can't wait to see her on the water. :-))
