      last year one of our backers did a test… and here is the result

      would it be posable to make a keel for it with enough space inside so it could be motorized? maybe even just enough room for something as simple as one of those rubberband motor things you used to make as a kid, you can make some pretty heavy duty ones too from memory.

      Yes, that’s something we could look at in the future for sure

      How did you do the sails? Recommendation for materials? Would love to see a close-up pic.

      I agree. Sails would be great. Or maybe rolled up sails to attach to the mast.

      I think the origional painter just used tissue paper for his sails, though i have just sent him a private message to enquire and see if we can get some close ups.

      Roly has got back to me. he went down and just got a plain handkerchief, as they tend to be silk so thin but strong, and used that to make the sails
