She is a rocket…. very lively, quick to accelerate, responsive, and forgiving. We have some work to do in refining systems, improving controls and purchases, but she is everything I had hoped for. The balance is absolutely perfect, and fingertip control of helm, with just a hint of weather feel up wind.
She will be back in the shop for a day or so while Irene blows through, then on the water Sunday to continue testing.
