2. first displacement test

This was just a displacement test, to see if it displaced about my weight in water (it needs just a bit of ballast) and to see if it was level. It worked!

The outriggers were funky, forcing me to bend over, but this trial went well. The craft is very "alive" in the water.

The next trial will have better outriggers, a rear tail and a forward wing (down around my feet).  The tail and wing will generate thrust as I bob up and down and shift my weight forward and back.
