Most of the process was described in your blog - I admired it then as much as I admire it now.
Superb hull shape, best materials and precise craftsmanship - no wonder she is such a beauty and such a performer.
Just wonder: your water tanks, which can be filled with sea water - do they significantly contribute to stability and/or heel or are they too small to make a real difference - water ballast tanks on dedicated racers are usually much larger and further on the sides of a boat (with large pumps to move watter left or right). Of course you could not sacrifice the living spaces for that - so do you use them as ballast tanks ?
