Work is progressing on Gaiasdream.
The rudders are almost finished, it will give us 25% more surface area, and I expect 30% more maximum lift from the new rudders.
It should make it easier to balance the boat under sail, and give us more control at slow speeds.
The wheels are progressing nicely too.
It still will be a while before the new wheel system will be installed, because it also means we have to use different autopilot drives.
Both of these, will be a major upgrade for Gaiasdream.
Gaiasdream is planned to go on the beach for her annual anti-fouling in the next few weeks.
If you are in the Sydney area, contact me if you want to help.
