Charles’ Carbon Flying Fifteen from Composite Craft….

Have you seen a Flying Fifteen in the Mould?  I must admit – I haven’t. Newcastle is a heck of a way from Kent… and though I’ve had three built at Ovis, I’ve never been to see it in process. I have though been to Petticrows at Burnham and seen the Dragon building multiple times – my own Dragon included. Same thing really!!  But I never saw a carbon boat in the mould….

This is Charles new boat in the mould. (You can click on the photo to enlarge) I guess the blackness is the carbon fibre and I must say it looks very neatly executed.  Charles has given me a few photos taken during the build. We’ll post them on the blog over the coming days…
