Motor sailing with Alice Gale

This video is my first sail with Alice Gale after the Elco electric conversion.  I have comments about the sailing and handling in the video.   In summary,  I am super pleased with the outcome of the conversion.

Since this video I have had other opportunities to sail.  What I discovered was a wonderful way of motor sailing.  With just a minimum thrust from the electric motor I am now able to significantly improve my pointing ability.  The motor has eliminated all concerns about cruising the harbors in Southern California.  The boat balance feels great.
