I had my first trials yesterday and today. Generally, they were successful. I had a few bugs to work out with the steering cords and chain tension, but I was on the water doing nice laps after a few false starts. A priority will be grinding the prop to add the lift from a proper profile. Also, I may adjust the pitch as I was spinning out on the pedals before getting to max effort. A future priority will be sealing off a greater portion of the stern hull. You will see the stern sits low due to water that enters a fairly large drive leg stern partition through the drive leg opening. This will be an easy modification once I take the time to work on it. It's been a long day, so I apologize for a lack of a storyline on the trials. This will have to be a photo post for now.
