Delivery day at FIBRE Mechanics....   As the 100ft central hull of Banque Populaire XI is loaded onto a wind turbine transporter to make it's journey from Lymington UK to Lorient in France.  The new Ultime 100 trimaran was designed by VPLP and is being built by CDK Technologies in Lorient, with key components being contracted to long-time project partners FIBRE Mechanics.  The hull is built entirely in High Modulus carbon fibre with aramid honeycomb core, and cured at 95 degrees centigrade in a 35m long hull oven. This is all fairly routine for FIBRE Mechanics, the only remaining challenge being to navigate some tight corners in Lymington and a few tricky roundabouts in Lorient.
