Development Update #8 on the Pulse 600

Innovative New Ring Frame Design Clever solutions to difficult problems are evident throughout the Pulse 600 design. None more so than the carbon-fiber ring frame that’s literally at the heart of this ground-breaking new sailing machine. The righting forces from the floats are transferred into the struts and into the hull itself...at the very place where mast loads and foil loads intersect. This is a perfect place for a strong, elegant design to efficiently pass loads through the hull, and... Read More »

Development Update #6 on the Pulse 600

Mast & Boom The mast and boom will be aluminum. The cost differential to go to carbon on a boat this size vs. the performance gain does not add up and we want to keep that boat as affordable as possible whilst maintaining a high level of performance.  Rudders & Dagger Board Both the rudders and dagger board are composite boards and both are retractable. In the up position, the dagger board will sit just under the boom and in the down position will be neatly out of the way and flush with... Read More »

Development Update #5 on the Pulse 600

        The Pulse 600 features: - Carbon reinforced beams (supporting the floats) - A Full carbon ring frame - A carbon reinforced back beam  With these 6 high load components, we transition all the major forces on the boat as the torsional loads are transferred through the beams and onto the ring frame and back beam. Likewise, the mast is mounted directly onto the ring frame and the main-sheet track onto the back beam.  With the major loads taken care of using the high cost/high strength... Read More »

Development Update #3 on the Pulse 600

  With the hull, beam and float moulds all complete, the attention is now on the deck mould as the last major moulding to be completed before the first product can be produced. Here are some recent photos and insight into the current developments:   To make the deck mould, we first have to make the male plug. We do this using a series of CNC cut parts, which we slot into the hull shape before finishing with a filling material which is then sanded back by hand. We do this on a hull part so that...
