Ahoy, Mates!

My neighbor is moving from San Francisco to join a startup in Chicago.  Weird, right?  and Brrr!

But he very kindly gave me this sailboat, which has been sitting in his garage for a long time.  What a splendid fellow!
It needs to be cleaned up, but all the parts seem to be in place and the rigging seems intact.  Once I wrap the ArrBot, I'll give it a go and report back here.  Initial impression: those are some pretty massive servos!
And not just a pretty yellow sailboat, but a glider as well!  There's a few tears in the covering, but I'll take it to the Concord Model Engineers and see what they have to say about it.

Thanks Blake!
