It's in the water...

Yesterday 'Natural-High' was successfully launched.

Unfortunately the weather had just changed and later in the day a southerly storm blew in with 40knots and heavy rain.  After craning the boat into the water I motored it around to a floating dock to work on.

The electric motors were surprisingly good.   At the time of launch the wind was light but it still motored directly into it and reached 6.7 knots.  Later in the day when I had to shift it to a new location it did 7.1 knots with the wind behind.  Be doing more testing on this over the next week.

The total weight was almost exactly as we estimated...6 tonnes.
