SCIGRIP Solar Boat Team

SCIGRIP Solar Boat Takes Shape

The Team has been working hard the past few weeks and it is exciting to see the SCIGRIP Solar Boat starting to take shape. Michal and Bartosz have constructed the deck from a combination of PVC foam and carbon fibre which was then infused with epoxy to ensure supreme strength and stiffness throughout the vessel. This was followed by bonding the hull to the deck regions using a range of SCIGRIP adhesives.

Achieving a light weight structure remains the SCIGRIP Team’s number one priority so materials selection has been crucial.
