Update

 Hey guys, just giving a progress report on the new and improved land sailer. The mechanism that folds its sail is working fine right now, but looks ready to fall apart, so I'll have to fix that, and the overall structure of the ship is very unstable. Im going to have to re-do a lot. the mast makes the center of gravity rather high, so im going to be adding counterbalances to the skateboard, to keep things from toppling over.

  Sorry, No picture for today, it was too unstable for me to take a good photo, and I doubt anyone here would want to see a pile of pipes and rope scattered on the ground. Thats all for now, I'll take more pictures as soon as I can.
