The beams on wich I put the moulds. The have to be level in all directions and equally spaced.

Here the foreward moulds are upp. The spacing is 60 cm. There are extra half moulds at the ends at 30 cm spacing. I now realise that the curvature has so small radius that I have to insert even more moulds at the ends at 15 cm spacing.

But first two weeks at the Stockholm boatshow, leaving wendsday morning. Come and have alook.

Regards Yrvind.

The full scale moulds are now done, all eight of them.

Marking the lines on the particle board prior to cutting them  with the jigsaw.

The four aft ones to the left, the four foreward ones to the right. For a ten foot boat I made her as big as I judge is consistent whith seaworthiness. I plan to spend one year non-stop in her.

Besides that I prepare myself and the previus boat for the Stockholm boatshow which opens next week.

There is plenty of snow here, the boat is at the moment inaccessible but milder weather and rain is announced. I hope for the best, that the snow will mealt away.

At the boat show I will show the previus boat give lectures and anser questions about the coming trip around in ten. I will sell my books and give out leaflests motivating the commitment, welcome.

Regards Yrvind

Yrvind shows the length overall of his new boat.

Yrvind shows his boat to the Swedish Atlantic Rower Niclas Mårdfelt. The boat is used as measurement to show  the size of Yrvinds next boat. A boat that will be used to circumnavigate the world non-stop. The boat is smaller than 10 feet. The film at the top of present project shows a prototype of the project Yrvind Ten. Another film showing this scale model can be seen here: scale model in 1:20. The model is tested in weather conditions that in the right scale would be equal to hurricane winds.

If you are interested to hire Yrvind as a speaker you can reserve him on line at Sveriges Talare. If you are curious you can se a movie trailer when he gives lectures. Take a look under the link “lecture” above!
