Hi guys.
Have received my Comtesse from Conrad's and am wondering if there are any advantages in making the fore sail and main sail independently controlled?
Look forward to your thoughts on the subject.

If anyone knows of any other forums to glean info from on separate sail control I'd be greatly appreciative.

Just a quick suggestion after having read previous posts about the pulley on the mainsail sheet being too high. When I built mine, I realised  that the servo arm was much lower than the pulley and the sheet would enter the pulley at a very steep angle. (Asking for trouble IMHO)  <:(

My answer was to mount the pulley at 45 degrees on the bulkhead so that the sheet would enter the pulley at one angle and leave the pulley at another angle. That way, the sheet would form its own "straight line" and would not jam or leave the pulley. Simples.   :-))

Never had any problem with jamming or tangles.  8)

Hope this helps.
