The new Hadron, which is to be known as the ‘Hadron H2’, is now progressing rapidly. The hull plug was completed in July, the mould has now been made and the first hull completed. The hulls are epoxy-infused carbon/aramid foam sandwich courtesy of Henry White at White Formula UK. I have now got the first hull, still in the mould, back at the workshop and am currently constructing the plugs for the buoyancy tanks. We hope to have two pre-production boats sailing before the end of the season on which the sail design and fitting layout can be finalised. HD sails have now been appointed as sailmaker.
