Cheers Mike. He's enjoying the process, and was having a field day with it yesterday, so that's all good

Well done Jeremy_H the boat seems to be running pretty nice at this point, the strakes seem to have resolved some issues, definitely a successful project!

Cheers arcdude

A short vid of Sam having some more fun with his boat. We've moved the lift strakes forward and made them permanent. It was probably more windy than last time, and Sam will benefit from some more controlled inputs but it needs a faster steering servo first really.

Yeah he loves it. We're waiting for a calm day before we make anymore running adjustments, I think we are are pretty much there, but the winds are having so much influence on it it's difficult to be sure, roll on Summer

That is awesome, nothing like a Father son tag team Sam looks to be handling the boat quite well, beautifully done! Would have seen more of the young lads excellent driving skills if it weren't for the guy in the SI3 hogging the spotlight lol
