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.

little flatter, I think we're going to head towards a more traditional
lateen rigAnd back at the dock
