New Year/ New Voyages

January 5th saw the first voyage by a Green Sea Ship of 2008, when the Battleship MUSASHI set sail on Mercado Lake in Scottsdale. I had intended to sail earlier with the West Valley RC Mariners, but I drove 45 minutes out to Goodyear before noticing I had left my batteries at home!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGHHH!!!!!!

So, I picked up the batteries and headed for the much closer Mercado lake, where I went all the way around the lake. It was a grey day that was forcast to be rainy, but there was no wind, making for perfect sailing conditions.

The only problem I can report is that the rudder is really WAY undereffective. She needs a better control horn for the rudder shaft. I intend to do one of those things where the control rods connect to BOTH sides of the control horn so that every action is push/pull.
