A for Effort?




And now for something completely different…

The Super Scow was a prototype developed to be a product for my former company microSAIL. I had used the rack type Power Ballast System (PBS) you see in the picture on a prototype microMOTH and the Melges24RC prototype and the idea was to come up with a much less expensive version that would work on a 36" hull. The scow performed well but ironically was just too expensive so it never made it as a product.The PBS was outstanding and loads of fun to sail with. Movable ballast technology will likely one day make it in the model world and people will discover a whole new dimension to RC Sailing. -Anarchist Doug.
