What is this? Plug for TP52 Synergy's new bulb

As most comments and emails we received correctly observed, the video shows the construction of a plug for a new bulb. More precisely, it is the plug for the new bulb the Russian TP52 team Synergy is building in Valencia.

The two Russian TP52 yachts, Synergy and Valars, are currently undergoing significant modifications, inside the K-Challenge base in Port America's Cup. Both are 2008-generation boats, the former having started her life as BMW Oracle's yacht and the latter as the latest, and last, Mean Machine TP52.


It's been quite a time we haven't published a quiz. Can you guess what we see on the video?

Modelando la sección de proa del TeamDeltaLloyd sobre un pan de poliestireno, para luego poder moldear la nueva sección de proa, el trabajo se esta llevando a cabo en las instalaciones de Eligio Re Fraschini en Italia.
Giusto?

It's a suppository for SNG & Alinghi as the AC under their watch needs to be cleaned out & up

Strictly speaking it is a plug (i.e. male), not a mould (i.e. female), for a keel bulb. Once the plug is completed a mould would then be created from it.
