MUN SailBOT would like to thank Spartan Industrial Marine for offering a discount on some great fiber glassing supplies. Every bit of support helps our team build amazing boats.


The Last Few Weeks

We are now approaching the competition date fast and our boat is almost ready to sail. with a new hull, a new electrical layout, and a beautiful new wind sensor, we hope to be a worthy opponent this year.

Construction Phase

A new semester has come which marks our transition from the design phase to the construction phase of our new boat. During the last Fall semester, the design team conjured up a new hull, rudder, bulb and sailplan as well as redesigning the electrical system. Druring this Winter semester, these components of our boat will be constructed and then put to the test (when the ice melts).

The construction of the hull is already underway with the mold almost complete. The bulb is in its beginning stages of construction and parts for the new rudder are being cut and sanded to size.
