I have to admit that this afternoon was a very satisfying moment for me as a designer. It is really hard to get a grasp of the lines of the yacht while it is inside the hall. But now that it is outside, I am very happy with the lines. I think it looks great.

It took almost all day to get the hull out the door. 95% of the time was spent getting the trailer in place. Once that was done it rolled out very smoothly.

We also got quite a good test of the structural strength of the hull, since some of the maneuvers involved supporting just the ends, or putting quite a lot of side pressure on the topsides. But everything stayed stiff and in place.
