Pond Yachts first sail after many years.
« on: May 06, 2018, 12:27:58 AM »

About twelve years ago I bought a 36" long pond yacht of unknown age and design it was probably home built and possibly designed.  A few days ago it had its first sail after a rather protracted refit which involved fitting R/C for rudder only and enlarging the rudder.  It sailed quite well managing to avoid the local wild fowl, an attack by a fish before the radio went down so there was about 20 minutes of free sailing.  New batteries will be bought before its next outing.

Regards Tony.
