Ella - first sea trials

At last, this weekend the brand new Whaleboat open water rowboat went in for its first sea trials. Unfortunately the weather was pretty bad so nobody was available for shooting action shots. But you can trust us, the boat handled perfectly and the crew was pleased with the performance. More pictures to be posted.
