James, that's great you found the leaks. I hope a little silicon glue or Marine Goop will solve that problem. Shifting the batteries might take care of the list. Jim Z. Congratulations on your sailboat modifications. I would love to come out and see it sail sometime, please let me know when you'll be out next. Randy

Jim Z. and James and Terry, the forecast for Confluence lake at Delta today is partly sunny and 47 degrees F. That's not too bad. Winds are only to be forecast at 2-3 mph, so perfect for your boat Jim Z. I'll be there at 13:00 with the Soling 1 meter and the SAR(Search and Rescue) Air-boat also. (1:00 PM). Randy

We had fun today. Grandpaz sailed his boat out aways and I rescued it with my Air-boat. It was a fun day with Cliff and Jim Z. Randy

There was no wind so I was almost dead in the water. Glad Randy was there to rescue me. He had fun doing it.

Found out that it is rudder only, no sail control. But that just leaves room for improvement.

Cliff ordered one, I agree $20.00 with radio is not to shabby. Would make a nice "spec" class boat. The description says "includes mainsail winch" is that a typo?

maybe they updated the boat. The only info I could find on it is pretty old (it's been around quite a while)

OK sounds good. Stripped mine to the bare hull, reinforced a few things, changed rudder servo, aligned the ballast bulb with the bow (by eye) [br][br]
