TP-52 Esmeralda Build: The hull and deck are removed from their respective molds

The hull and deck are removed from their respective molds. Both hull and deck are immediately covered with protective sheaths of peel-ply to protect from dings and damage. In the final picture, you can see the hull mold on the right, ready for the next lay-up.

The hull will stay upside down while the builders install the frames, floors, and interior. The hull will stay upside down for 98 percent of the build.
