Specmar 16' ORCA build

Parts are all cut!
As kmorin said, this design is built like an abrams tank. Super thick materials, logical structure.
We cut this on a CNC router machine. The CAD file came with the pen marking lines on a separate layer, so the sharpie pen on the CNC makes it easy to find reference lines. We didnt have to modify any of the CAD, the G-Code was easily generated from the work done by the folks at Specmar.

Stay tuned! Layup begins shortly.

Our shop is pretty busy right now so our vendors at Dominator Welding will be updating the feed with the SPECMAR build of the ORCA 16. Stay tuned for an exciting build!

In case you guys havent heard of Dominator- they are a team of guys that left Safeboats and Kvichak and do aluminum welding and fab. We have subcontracted multiple builds to them and never had a quality issue.
