HI ALL UPDATE ON WATER TESTS
[/size]an i put her in the test tank an loaded her down with about 30 pounds of batts an after half an hr she had two tiny bubble leaks in her hull[/color][/size]

so took batts out an took her out of the tank an then just poured in some resin over the small areas an then back into the tank an put back in the batts an she was ok for near about 3hrs in the tank an no more leaks im pleased to say an the shock test went ok as we lift her up an give her a shake with a big batt in the centre of the hull an jen said no cracking sounds so that test passed ok
[/color][/size]an stabilty was reasonable but i think im gonna fit a keel weight on her as i dont want to have to fit all those big batts in when i sail her so the keel wheight will be the way to go SO IN OTHER WORDS SHE PASSED HER TESTS OK an now some picces but they are not that good as over the yrs livin here jen has fitted around my test tank a lot of bushes an plants so i could not get right down to take pics of tiger in the tank an i took about 80 pics an here now ive just picked out the best ones an they are a little blured as the sun light was so bright on the white plasti card super structure it caused a little light reflection so my auto camera cut down the light so not so good picsanyway 1st picces just in the tank an no batts weghts in her as i just wanted to see how she floated
