Boat looks real good--nice build. A couple of things I would suggest as you get into sailing her. Next time you get small packs of nuts and bolts from Home Depot save plastic container, take lid off and velcro to hull and put the batteries in one and the receiver in the other then any water that gets in hull will not touch either of these. You then can use more velcro to move battery box farther to the stern for better balance in heavy air. Secondly, pick up a water gun from the dollar store(small one) smash it and drill drain hole in transom and use water gun filler cap to plug it--then can empty water out of hull without taking hatch off. Lastly the topping the topping lift is an adjustable line that goes from jib mounting eye on mast to end of jib boom with a bowsie so you can adjust sail shape same as you do with kick up adjuster on main boom. Both sails should have matching curves.Good luck with the trials--our water is still too hard! Cheers Bill.
