I replaced the scale rudder with one about 30% bigger, this way I know it will respond in heavy winds.
Some pic's too see the deference.

Let us know how the tests between one and the other turn out, same boat different sails, could be very interesting.

Sorry I got cough up in the summer activity's, doing shows and regattas, Just having fun all round.

So back to the Wawona, I got some hard board sails cut out for patterns, mounted them with tap to see if I need to make changes of some type, What do you think, too gig, too small, just right.

I am still looking for 10mm. and 6mm. blocks to get the rigging set up, some that will not brake the bank, so far the prices have been way over the top, the lowest price I have found is $6.95 each, I need 33, so there is the problem, making them has not been very successful.

Thanks
There are hundreds in the area, BUT the millfoile will have most of them plug up before the end of July, but there are some that you can run year round, with insurance, witch belong to city areas. the Bellview Mall lake is the most popular. A lot of the lakes in Washington don't allow gas powered boats. the clubs I belong to run electric or sail.
Hope this is the answered you were looking for?

I recently did a quick whirlwind trip through the Great PNW. Tacoma area and Seattle. It was very nice. Who knows what the future might hold? Every time I go there, I'm impressed.
