The rigid hatches are2 part and removeable. A clever design. The forward part lashes to cleats on under the house roof. The larger after part slides on the forward part. The aft hatch gets a Nicro 500 vent fitted to it for ventilation. There will also be another vent in the deck forward of the house.


Here is the mainsheet rigging. Not quite as Matt drew it, but I am going to start with this and see how it works.

Just a few pics of the rudder setup. Still needs final fairing and paint. Rather than a weighted rudder as on enigma and paradox, I went with a downhaul. While I was at it, I managed to make the uphaul more complicated, as well.

This is the same as the Paradox furler, although I think the standpipe (lower section) may be a different length.

Window Cutouts

Working on window cutouts and cutting the lexan to shape. Also note the furler and sail rigging are complete. Will try to have photos of both the furler (same as on Paradox plan) and the hatches at some point soon.
