"Gwaihir" is a Class 40 Rodger Martin design built of Corecell foam and S-glass. She was built by Al Fresco Composites with the intent to race around the world. I had the opportunity to design most and install all of her systems. Below is the backside of the door holding her main electrical panel located at the navigation station.
