Vader undergoes Sea Trials
Managed a few spare hours to complete the Build to a level I could do some Sea Trials. Recovery of the Thumb from Applying 43 Fender Tyres will take some time. Luckily its not the Throttle hand.
Ballasting done in the bath so was reasonably happy but couldn't wait for the batteries to fully charge so off to the Local lake for a test run.
Looked a treat on the water and immediately drew the attention of a few passers by.
Did find the Electronize 543-23 I was intending to use probably a little underpowered so I'll install a basic 540 and see if I get more performance. Might have been the state of the batteries. ???
Installing the twin Fender barriers at the front seemed to stop almost all water from coming over the bow.. More sea trials on the weekend and hopefully more pictures of the other Club Springers.
Hopefully next week will see the installation of the electrics for the water-cannons. Tested on 6V gives a reasonable display. 12V would be better but wiring would be a hassle.
