Hi Dan your project inspired me . I have been on the project for 4 weeks now and done 4 test sails . I like to say all went well but I have a lot of tuning to do .I have put a jib on to help tacking, which it has I pitch poled it in 15 knot , but sailed again in the afternoon with. better control 8 to 10 knots. It is a bit sluggish in light winds. but goes well when in the grove which is narrow. Got a lot to learn.
