How'd she handle with just the pump? Quick, sluggish, turns, etc?
With no wind the speed is on scale.
But this saterday was a strong wind and when she came back into/against the wind the pump was not strong enough.
I think the pump is strong enough for move here out of a dead corner when she is with sails.
beautiful!!! ...lucky your gun ports are not open .....do you have any control over the ballast weight? .what's the weight of your external ballast ?...is there any internal ballast? ....is she able to sit a bit higher in the water?.. sails do add some weight....i can't believe the great idea with the waterpump....wish i had thought of it.....boy does she look impressive!.....looks too macho to be a she though .....congratulations!
Out of the hull, the weight is 13 kilo (26 pounds)
Insidi is 2 kilo
The hight is good but the leadbomb is to close with the ship.
I have to lower the leadbomb from 8cm to 20cm (I think)
