Saturday was a test day for the club, and we brought nearly the full fleet of boats to test. It rained the entire day, but other than that the testing was good.
For the most part it was a successful test day - especially since we didn't break anything. The Beacon Plumbing (Zephyr 27) and American Dream (Insane FE30) ran very nicely and are basically dialed in and ready to race.
The rigger (JAE21 FE) worked flawlessly but needed more get up an go, so we have changed out the Proboat motor for a UL-1 motor. The additional 400 to 500 Kv should take that boat up into the 50mph range.
The Oberto had more trouble getting up on plane, so the sponsons have been modified again to get more angle of attack. We will see on Sunday for the first race if that will work. When it did get up on plane, then the boat is quite fast.
