    I built Alice C from a Model Slipways Dutch Coaster kit a few months ago but only this week got round to ballasting her and fitting the radio. Launched her this morning in not very favourable conditions, westerly, far too gusty and all over the place around our launching apron. She did well under the circumstances and I look forward to trying her on a better day.

    Hi Nerys
    This is so reminiscent of my first build, the Billings Mercantic. Still have her but in need of a complete restoration. Pic attached of Mercantic at New Brighton in the early 1970's
    I like how you have built and hope it sails as well as mine did.

    Thanks for the compliment Doug. Yes, I agree, the ballast needs to go further forward, but I didn't bother this morning, conditions were not nice, t'will be done before the next voyage. Sailed the barge for a short time too, but she was laying over with water on the hatches in the squalls. Discretion is the better part of valour and I'm old enough to be a fair weather sailor these days.
    Cheers,
    Nerys

    Plucky little ship, nicely done Nerys ๐Ÿ‘
    You might want to shift the battery (or ballast?) forward a little?
    She looks a tad stern heavy ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
