October 18th was another milestone in the near 50-year history of the Viking Yacht Company as the hull mold for the new flagship 92 Convertible left Building 5 for Viglass. Some number trivia: the Travelift capacity is 150 tons; the 92 hull mold weighs 60,000 pounds; that is an 82 Convertible alongside the 92 hull mold. Launches in the fall of 2014.
Under the watchful gaze of the ubiquitous water tower, the Travelift pauses before lowering the mold on a pair of dollies. Of course they measured the door opening. Twice.
