RACE FOR WATER (HULL MOULD) - MOD70
Construction of the first MOD70 was due for delivery in October 2010. The project will be a collaboration between top European racing boat yards; with Green Marines part in the programme being the construction of the main hull plug and mould tooling. The tooling for a carbon racing yacht can be as exotic as the boat itself. In this case the mould is made in two halves with a centreline split; the material is pre-preg carbon cured to 100 degrees celsius, and since the curing process involves significant expansion and contraction of the plug it was necessary to mould port and starboard halves simultaneously.
