Playing with riggers.....
« on: July 15, 2012, 01:46:35 PM »

Finally got my rigger back on the water today, with its brand new OPS 45 to run in. All was going very well indeed until a stick in the water knocked the rudder up and it ended up in the bank... No damage done though.

Handed the tranny over to Greg so I could take some photos, so enjoy :-))

Andy.

Also on the water today was the Don Pinckert Coyote some of you may recognise from ebay. It's still for sale, and is very tempting indeed. Nowhere near as stable as mine, but almost as quick...

And last but no means least, Steve had his new Mastercraft 40 on the water, all was going well with that too until some electric thing drove out in front of him...

Looks like you were all having fun in the sun :-)
Who does the Mastercraft 40?  Its not based on Gerone's old one, is it?
Cheers

More playing around this morning, though I didn't have time to run anything myself. Looks like Steve's gear change worked, and the Lynx finally ran properly... Till it sank. %)
