Carbon Footprint Project - Just Add Water!
Conversion complete - from old school lowrider to modern generation foiler.
We’ll do a full post with pics next weekend when we launch her, but she's all finished now and sat on her trolley ready to be taken for a sail. This weekend was the fit out and rope out stage (Katherine's favourite bit as there is no carbon dust involved!) Thanks to Mike Cooke for the prompt manufacture of a mast foot. The tramps were the last addition - also converted from the original ones!
We were not quite ready in time to get out over the weekend, but we snuck out for a sail with Katherine taking the Weapon for a spin before we hopefully find her a new home. (Open to part exchange offers now on her for good lowrider conversion possibilities...)
I never thought I’d be painting a boat hot magenta pink but Carbon Footprint actaully looks pretty cool, in a pink/white combo. Essential girly extras such as the star for the end of the wand are also complete!
