That's what I call a proper model. Is it sail only or motor assist?

Hammer - it does have a set of detachable motor pods, but they are used only to get past the weedline or to avoid curious boaters who come way to near.
All sailing, tecks,etc ., is done under wind power alone.

@DanL:

Nicely sailed, a number of well managed tacks, I know how tricky they are with a boat with square sails.
She is obviously quite heavy and handles nicely.

Mr. Penguin,
Thank you.
She is nearly 80lbs total with a 40lb fin keel attached.  OAL of hull is just over 5ft.
Most of the videos are at half-speed for a bit more realistic wave look, so the tacks are made with a bit more speed and momentum at the start than it might seem in the vids.
