Observation

Test report

  • Wind condition : 8 knots gusts, mostly no wind
  • Current condition : .5 to 1 knots
  • Wave height : max 20 cm, high frequency, disorganised 3d waves

Evaluation

Overall

  • Not very successful. Irregular low wind conditions. Test got disturbed by ferries.
  • The boat is hard to maneuver and recover, pull off the water / carry around
  • The currents were often faster than how much the boat could sail, we had little control
  • The boat is tough, we launched in the water by throwing it 3 meters above water, without damage.
  • The electronics remained perfectly dried
  • We forgot the batteries (4AA 1.5V) and we could buy a set of batteries at the corner shop - that’s a very convenient battery pack.
  • The boat was a little too big to take around in public transportation (Hong Kong MTR)

Hull

  • The hull does not curve enough (max 25 degrees)
  • There is too much water turbulences between the sections
  • Too much buoyancy
  • The hull is not hydrodynamic enough
  • The boat bows down into the water

Ballast

  • Not hydrodynamic, needs better penetration in water
  • Motor (Hull & Sail)
  • The amplitude of both hull and sails are too small.

Sail

  • Sail is too small for low wind condition

Next Step

Actions for next prototype

  • We need to add a piece of audio tape on the top of the mast to know the wind direction and speed
  • Boat is needs to be lighter, reduce weight
  • Design a ballast that penetrates water better
  • Make a hull that curves more
  • Avoid space between the section to minimize turbulences
  • Reduce buoyancy
  • Augment amplitude of hull curving and sail sheeting
  • Sharper bow, sharper stern (hull)
  • Balance buoyancy front and back
  • Add handles to recover and carry around
