The model is 15 years old now, have not got a hernia yet, the superstructure comes off, the boat goes in to the water, main batteries are put in, then ballasted out with lead, superstructure goes back on and off she sails, all 76-80 lbs. O0

The idea is to get as low as you can, almost dipping the camera into the water. it makes for a more realistic photo
