With the SpeedPuck on board, it was easy to watch the velocity change with different settings, sitting positions, etc. Even though that was a light air day, downwind speeds were above 11 mph! I think the average was around 11.2.

Upwind, the compass portion of the SP was a little more difficult to tune in. With the cat always in a more bow down position, the SP wanted to pick that up as a header. I think with more time with it, you get used to the bias and go from there.

And now, I have my boat back from the "pimp" shop! Look for more good video and pics coming from the FWYC area!!! grin

Thanks Cliff for bringing out the powerboat and letting me sail your F17!
