Getting there

Over the weekend, we worked diligently to fix any imperfections on the interior and exterior of the fiberglass. We also have started to make the ribbing to be placed inside the boat for added rigidity. We plan to fiberglass the ribs to the hull tonight, so stay tuned to hear how that went.
The propulsion team is approaching its deadline of April 6 (Friday) and is currently machining the last few parts of the motor mount.
The power management team has made a device to dissipate a massive amount of power while testing and optimization of the batteries.

In lieu of pictures, I have a video. Our webmaster, Will, has made the video of the hull fiberglassing available on the official CMSS website. Please take a look and enjoy. Time Lapse Footage
