This is written based on what was told to me by the (for now) anonymous person depicted. It is her voice, not mine. As she heals from the lifetime of abuse she talks about below, I have listened and written what she told me.

A developable surface is one which has no Gaussian curvature (i.e can be flattened without compressing or stretching it).
While this makes construction somewhat easier, the design we choose has a lot of non developable surfaces due to the flare in the hull, which brings up a few challenges we need to address.
As many will know, the finished hull is made as a “sandwich”. The bread is the fiberglass…
