Didn't that whole blinking-to-get-people's-attention thing go out about a decade ago?

Specs call for E glass & foam for the hulls. Yellow is the foam, by the look of things.

No Resin Feeds going on here. Those green buckets at the bow are full of engineering parts for the Ker50 that you cannot see in the picture. Shame its not a 360 shot because there is a Red Ker40, and White Ker40 a Ker 50 and about 60 people hard at work as we speak. Not to mention the 2x Carkeek 40's and 2x MC38s, and a Ker 46 in the next door shed..

These guys are busy. And the workers work 7 days a week. Expats and locals.. They know their shit.

So no need to talk turkey about it.

Since you asked what are THEY.It is MC^2 60 hull #1 and Hull #2 side by side. Hull #1 is being joined by the main bulkhead now.
THis is going to be an awesome Catamaran.

you didnt get the drift fella. The picture I was referring to was the one with the vacuum tubes going into a series of buckets.. They know their shit alright. In the same way that labourers know how to accurately mix concrete for apartment blocks in thailand, using home made wooden shovels, on a piece of board, loaded into home made wooden buckets, pulled up with ropes to others standing on rickety bamboo formwork...etc etc. One of those hundreds of plastic hoses sucks air, because a bucket is not topped up enough and goodbye vacuum.. Get the drift ?

I've seen less tangles from a five buck K-mart fishing reel. Can anyone enlighten me as to the infusion technique they're using? why so many lines?

My guess would be that these are here to collect the residue that the vacuum renders out of the laminate.

I raced one of their new boats recently, when pretty damn good. Another China basher, get real man, only thing your pissed about is being another overpaid boat builder here in the old USA being trumped by someone in China. And what you would you know about China ?
