Sea Trials Yesterday

It seems the autopilots are now satisfactory and so the remaining problem is battery charging and use.

The batteries are charging unevenly and at a slower rate then they should. Usually with one hydrogenerator down I get a positive charge but now it takes two down thus increasing vulnerability to damage. Three were stripped of blades in the week’s sail to Bermuda. Additionally the instruments that tell me how much is coming from the hydros and solar are giving way false figures.

An expert is coming from Maine arriving on Friday. Without a fix it does not look good.
