20130124 Prototyping Protei 10.4 and 10.5

We have finally been allocated a table in the ship to work. Immediately we have re-started prototype building. Several students are volunteering some of their time to help us move faster.

2 hulls have now been covered with fiberglass and resin, remains the electric control box, the mast and sails.

I slept 40 minutes last night and 2 hours the night before, I really need to catch up some sleep.
The few hours I sleep, I dream of testing Protei in the coastal waters near Fukushima power plant. Lots of work ahead.
