Quick MC2X Gyro Sea Trials on KEKOA - **First gyro sea trials today!**

Quick MC2X 25K from Gineico Marine

Borat: “Great success!”

Luke and I could notice the impact immediately. Very pleased!

While it was a bit blowier than it has been, in the leads we pretty much had to make our own waves. Watching the video you’ll see Luke set it up with a short run to get the wake going and then a slow down and a J-turn side on for the roll action.

The video:
1. Wake from a dive boat
2. First J-turn wake with unit on
3. J-Turn wake with unit turned on mid roll
4. The unit itself going from standby to on.
5. Same J-turn wake from different perspective with the unit turned on mid roll.
6. Side-by-side with unit on/off.

For the first part of the testing, we had the engineer in Italy controlling the unit via computer link so where we were in the bridge we couldn’t see exactly when it was being switched on or off. But both Luke and I could literally feel it. Hard to describe but it felt like something was holding the boat steady from underneath! (And yes there was a time delay between asking for it to go on and it going on!)

Even when the gyro was on for the whole turn/wake roll, you could literally feel the moment it starts to dampen the roll.

From Standby (off) to on and functioning is literally a one button push. And with the covers off, you can see the unit working initially much harder to bring the boat under control and then smaller movements as it kicks in!
