This cat will have a 3' underwing clearance when fully loaded. This most forward compartment will be sealed and will also be used for a holding tank on each side, 100 gallons each if needed in port or canal transition.
Peel ply (white) is used on every laminate. This Nylon fabric will give a smooth surface ready for the next procedure or attachment. The red is a dye that is used in the resin to insure proper and continuous mixing. The Carbon Fiber above, will be used under each structural bulkhead in multiple layers. One strand, about 1/8 ", has a tensile strength of 12,000 lbs.
To the right, the fuel tanks have been further coated with a white epoxy barrier. (500 gallons each side) Some of the bridgedeck 1" Airex foam core is laid down and the glassing has started.

The side of the hulls are going up as well as the main bulkheads on the bridge deck. The bulkheads are Airex foam and are placed on 2 layers of e-glass and 10 layers of carbon fiber. They will then be glassed onto the bridge deck with West System epoxy and 3 layers of biaxial fabric for the final connection. The diagonal bracing will have that area replaced with a flush floor 27' wide, here in the main salon.
