Here's how the hull starts out. A bunch of rough-cut foam pieces glued together with thin templates sandwiched in between each piece. Don't worry, it'll look good in the end.
Starting to look a little better... Next steps are to finish sanding to shape, cover with fiberglass and filler, sand until smooth, and wax until shiny. This first hull is also going to be the plug that we use to make a female mold.
