Few of our team members (Alex, Mike, and Ryan) spent their spring break at Boston Boatworks and Symmetrix’s sites working on the development of the new carbon fiber composite monocoque. This video shows the 5-axis CNC machine, at Symmetrix’s site in Bristol RI, cutting away to create a foam plug of the body.
