Good News for the Alpha Yachts Build Team! Today the first (half) mother of all Aeroyacht-Alpha 42′ was created and put in place. Looking at the pictures you can see the starboard side of of the plug still being enveloped by the half mold that is cored with balsa wood. Balsa is being used instead of foam or honeycomb as it has better compression characteristics and is more appropriate for mold building. Notice the thousands of channels in the balsa which are filled with resin. This gives immense strength and stiffness to the female mold which will give birth to many Aeroyacht-Alpha 42’s. Another photo shows the port side plug nearing completion. The Alpha build team expects to finish the mold by the end of next week.
