  • yeah, pretty cool. And, actually not complicated CNC mechanics. Would love to do a home build...

  • We got the new sails out today. What a transformation - lots more power. Some of it is from going up to 55 ft2 from 45, but also these sails actually have shape. So I'm pleased with my efforts. However, we did have one little issue:

    I'm afraid we may have outgrown our foam boats. Time to get the H16 going.

    Video to follow...

  • Congrats on your first sail. Any pics in action? Well if you're trying to go fast and breaking stuff, that's about right, so you MUST be on the right track!

  • Hey Chuck,
    No pictures, because we often end up turtled so we leave the phones on shore. I was going to take a picture of both boats next to the water when we got back, if the wind had died down. But my kid recently got a gopro, so we have some video:

    I was on the other foam boat and it has never gone so well. I had to sit on the gunwale to keep it upright & flat and it scooted a lot better. I know these are not beachcats, but they are still fun. I think the focus in terms of working on boats will be the Hobie 16.

  • Perhaps just keep beer in that cooler and don't try to sail it.
