The new fiberglass ladder/carbon windsurfing mast arch. Going to be used for solar panels and hanging the dinghy under (like davits). Uh, we're going to paint the ladder :)

Tubing joint detail up close. The joint is made with thin strips of carbon uni wrapping around both tubes like a lashing or a bandage. Then peel ply and overlapping layers of electrical tape inside out

I bought a few charts.... about 1000. That's not all of them. The total stack is about 4' high and about 500 lbs at least. It filled the car trunk, the entire back seat and front passenger seat. Took hours to move it was so heavy.
