A Saturday with no Football matches equals a Fly instead

Swell is finished bar the bow bumper. Nicely under weight for a Cedar hull which I'm pleased about. Now I have to get her out on the lake to see if all that thinking time was worth it!! I have endeavoured to keep as much weight as possible as close to the CoG. Hence the rudder servo, battery and RX are all in front of the mainsheet post and fixed into the bottom of a standard pot which itself if directly glued to the hull to lower the CoB. This was also part of the reasoning to do away with a raised foredeck. The other advantage of the low foredeck was to keep the windage to a minimum but I'm not too sure about the added turbulence of the bow and jib strut.
