The Hyas yiem is done, at least at about the 95% level. (It’s hard to say what modifications will come about after the sea trials on February 16th, but I’m feeling pretty good about it.) She’s heavy, but she’s carrying a fair bit of floatation too. Hard to guess the way it’s going to play out… which is why there’s no substitute for doing it!
I’m going to spend a little time next week putting together the checklist of what I want to go through during the sea trials. I imagine I’ll do whatever maneuverability tests I can, along with a self rescue or two, and there are a few other things I want to try as well. There are sure to be some repairs and/or changes afterward, but I hope there aren’t too many.
