Now I'm left with a dilema on how best to increase the weight, another coat or two of resin on the wetted hull area, lead up the masts, lead adjacent to the fin box, bigger batteries is a tricky one as my pot is so small.
No wonder she was going so well

The best option is to fit lead balence weights adjacent to the bottom of the fin box"

You will need to ballast the No 2 and No 3 rigs to be the same weight as your No 1 rig.
