Since May 11th we have spent a lot of time working on the stabilization of the Baker Mfg. hydrofoil’s rigid wing sail. We had to remove all of the adhesive that held the original canvas covering in place and make a few minor repairs to the structure.
Yesterday Paul Porter from Packaging Systems and Solutions, Inc. came and helped us apply the Clysar covering on the wing.
This morning, we successfully installed the wing in the Speed and Innovation exhibition. This may be the first time in its life that the two parts of the wing have been joined together!
