Optimist kit now packing for Switzerland

Some may wonder why we have to include a packing charge when the kit you have bought is shipped by road or sea?

 in this case we used a sheet of pine 9mm ply top and bottom, the five steel bands then can be made very tight to secure the package, which probably weighs in at 80 kgs.

These pictures demonstrate the steel banding, the pack in this case is okoume marine plywood and not the Optimist kit, the images should explain the process we use?

The actual CNC cut kit will be loaded into the purpose made packing crate on monday.

Click on the images to enlarge them.

The crate is being made today.

It has a 9mm pine ply sheet top and bottom, with 6mm plys on each side and the ends, glued and nailed it will be quite secure when the 16mm steel band strapping is applied.

Pictures of the loading will be added  later.
