2012-06-17 She Floats

We took the boat, tentatively named "Ella", story forthcoming, to Spring Lake for some sailing tests. There are a number of tweaks to be done to the sailing rig, and the sloped transom means the rudder action is kind of weird so we may have to address that, but overall I'm very pleased.
