Hi,


I finally finished my new "launch pad" for my boats and send the "Maggie M" on her maiden voyage.  Overall she behaved very well on the water. With the becker rudder she almost turns on a dime. I have to add some more ballast because at higher speed she leans quite a bit in sharper turns. The crew doesn't like it  >>:-(


Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Hi Wilhelm.
I note in your opening post you said you used a 40mm propeller, was this supplied by Slipway or your own choice? The Slipway webshop lists the prop as 50mm
Thank you

Hi Andy,
you are right, it was a typo. I did use a 50mm 4blade brass prop (as shown in the picture of the kort nozzle). Sorry, my mistake.
