We had a good day yesterday- not only did I become the first person since Donald to make a steering input in the cockpit that was translated back to the rudder on the transom but, we also built up the water brake in its freshly painted housing and gave it a bench test with some compressed air-

It's time for another 'Progress' update video and this is a long one, as there was so much to pack in from the six months that it covers! Not least, something we got up to just yesterday...

Tremendous work as ever and huge thanks to our Mike for taking the time to do this for us. For me this latest video just shows the dedication and effort that went into the spars and sponsons. When you see how much we've got through since and consider that as much was going into the spars/sponsons for the thick end of two years...

So, it looks very much as though the air start system is a runner! Not long before you can get a tune out of the Orph'...
