Ok Here we Go SEA-TRIALS, Let me set it up, The Trial took place in Spirit Lake Idaho (Elevation : 2604 ft , 47.96 degrees N, by 116.84 degrees W. )11:35 am,  The temp was 84 degrees F  Wind out of the south west at : 5.5 ( mph ) gusting to 10.5 ( mph ) It would have been nice to have a set of reefing point's in the Main. I  Let her sail for about 45 minutes then the wind kicked up , so that ended the Trial wich was very succesful , She tracked beautifully ( no weather helm ) and stayed on course very well . In Conclusion , Having a great set of plans from the designer , Made building this boat a dream. This was one of those build's that just came together without any problems , and everything worked on the first try ( I know I have said that before ) She was an absolute pleasure to build , After seeing her sail today , I still think that she is a bit small for a R.C. set up . My wife , took alot of pic's while I kept a close eye on the Boat.  I am glad that I was able to share this project with all of you, And a BIG Thanks for all the Comment's , Likes and Support . I wont be making any new postings on this Topic, However I will answer any questions or comments , so Here she is Sailing

Pete the photographs of her in the water are wonderful, you must be very happy with the final trials.

 

A wonderful model all round and it was a pleasure watching it come together.

Hi Pete. Kate looks absolutely fabulous on the water. I'm glad to hear that she tracked beautifully through the water, as that's a sign of a well built balanced hull and sail plan. It seemed like you picked the right day to sail her as well, with near perfect conditions. All in all, then, you must be very happy.

 

Well done and all the best!

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
