Sea Trial Newport RI 22-06-16
A beautiful day in SE New England saw us up early and off the dock at 0830 for a final Seatrial. All the new Electronics such as Infra Red Thermal imaging Camera, Searchlights, New Gyro and radios were all checked out. The Camera will even follow a Radar target that is being tracked.
Engineering was fully checked, the rebuilt Gearboxes, Engines, Steering all went through there paces. 1850 rpm and 14 knots…
Then up with the sails and all checked out. A quick tack or 2 and then back to the dock where the Preparation continues. A week to go before the OFF…
All the Best
