Today Ryan worked on the software that compiles information from the Arduinos into a compressed file that will be sent every hour to our database. We’re looking forward to testing this functionality tomorrow, as well as repackaging our batteries and writing the power handling software.
As far as the hull goes, there are two strips left for gluing, a bit more fairing to be done, and then the carbon fiber can go on. We’ve planned this for Tuesday night, although it may take a day or two more to secure the carbon. At the moment, hull construction is two days behind schedule, but Max believes that we can recover this time during the middle of next week (Max, Dan, and Mike are sailing a regatta this weekend). While we wait on supplies, Max is directing the construction of the bulkheads that he’s using to ensure rigidity in Scout’s 12′ long hull.
