Wilhelms Navigator build

The Navigator was one of the very first boats kits that were cut when Nigels large CNC machine arrived,

Hi Roy

Herewith some pictures of my Navigator, Jacqui.

I recently went for my first sail and launched her at Gordons Bay. We had a lovely day with light winds at first, but increasing to just over 20 knots. The boat proved very seaworthy. She handles the wind, choppy seas with white horses and a two meter swell with ease. Our maximum boat speed was 8,03 knots and we covered 31,3 km in the 4 hours 52 minutes at sea. We sailed 4,2 nautical miles into the bay.



More pic's on this super built boat tomorrow!
