It took longer than expected to complete the assembly of the 4 rigs but all is now finished and I am looking forward to get the boat out on the water. Everything fitted perfectly and there were exactly the right number of parts to assemble. I suspect it will take a while to stretch in all the sheets and cords so that fine tweaks can be made on the setup. Over the next couple of weeks I will put my observations on the build and initial sailing on the web site and am looking forward to receiving advice from a couple of sailing experts.
My initial thinking of the tuning the DF is that one starts with the published numbers and tune from there. I get the impression feel is going to be very important. Looking forward to the first meeting with low expectations.
