Hi y’all. I had decided that after work today I’d go down to the Cottonwood Creek Baptist test pond (to be known hereafter as CCBTP) and run the PT. Sometime before I left for home, it started to rain..!!?##$$!!
It let up as I pulled in the driveway, so I ran in, said hi and bye to wife and daughter, grabbed said boat and TX and headed to the pond. I didn’t have the battery centered, but it’s started to rain again so I made a few passes, and she’s a lot better. I would lose signal about halfway to the fountain, this time it was good all the way there and back. It turns left well, turns right ok, I still have a hard roll to right at full power and hard rudder, but it’s manageable now. The wind was up and it was sprinkling heading to rain so I called it quits after 5 minutes but I’m on the right track. Now it’s a question of trim and balance, and I’m pretty sure I’ll have to adopt my handling of this boat to its idiosyncrasies. But, for now, I’m good. If we don’t get rained out I hope to have more progress made this Sunday at Josey Ranch.
