Autumn sail with m/v Kong Olav
« on: November 01, 2020, 05:19:41 pm »

Hello!
I've never really tried this model out in any severe conditions, didn't feel confident due to her stability.  However, I was proven wrong today. Put her to sea in a gale and I think she passed with flying colours. Doesn't really show on the pictures but there were some serious gusts.
All the best to you all!

...and the last 2 pictures. I like these ones as it feels like she's on her way to berth.
All the best!

Seriously good photos Hama, if that was my model I'd have to hurry home and change the proverbial item of clothing.  %%

Thanks Joe!
Yes, there is a certain thrill to it that I like. And as you say, a change of clothes might come in handy after a sail {-) Sometimes when turning upwind and a gust hits broadside it's a little to much of a thrill.

Ok, I'm on repeat perhaps but it was such a fine day today so I had to take her to sea once more before packing up and heading home.
Hope you enjoy!

Hello!
Not much, about a teaspoon or two. Don't know where it enters but could be some of the windows and that the glazing isn't glued properly.
