Torben now tested on the bath and no problems just need a nice day now to go down to fleetwood












the motor seems a bit over powered but i suppose thatas better than under powered

thank you for all the comments and encouragement iam looking forward now to trying a scratch build

shes had her first sail today and apart from needing a bit more lead in the stern we had over an hour and the battery still wasnt showing signs of going flat







shes a bit over powered but i think thats better than under powered i did nt get much of the sailing cos i took my grandson and according to him its his boat now  {-) {-)
