    Look forward to that Peter,
    Remember though; the ballast / waterline is the Full Load line.
    You don't HAVE to load her down that far๐Ÿ‘
    Look at photos of any freighter, tanker, warship etc sailing without a full load.
    Lots of red bottom visible ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Going astern Doug, Oh, no,no,no, that would be unwise, putting the batteries forward would take her off the ballast line, she sails in perfect trim, will take her sailing, and get some photo's to show how she sits.๐Ÿ˜

    I would think that going astern could be quite heart stopping as well๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Maybe you can shift the batteries forward a tad?

    Thanks Doug for your kind comments, she runs just like the original Irishman, she has 2 x 12volt/7amp
    batteries, and with that weight, the freeboard at the stern is about 1 inch, looks wrong being that low, but am assured it is correct, very frightening turning hard port or starboard, she want to ship water on rear deck, and as you can tell by the dust on her, I don't sail her much.๐Ÿ˜

    cheers Peter
