    Very nice indeed. Dave also gave me the controls and I was impressed by its speed and very good turning circle. The twin (linked) piston tanks worked very well.

    We look forward to seeing more of her over the coming season. (Barrow sub day in September if not before.)

    Good photographs David nice and clear, shows the model needs further trimming. I would prefer the hull to be more buoyant on the surface, nice to see the lake depth back to normal.
