Hi Taylor,

You were right tried the masts in place to night, I tnink I will have to wait for a dry day and work outside when I get to the actual installation. Still plenty to do I am using a Hi Tech sail winch and so have had to build a support for it to get the drum to the right height.

I am now starting to think about wiring up I will make some alterations to Robbe's system as I would like more battery life am also thinking of putting a sound generator in to simulate the aux motor.

If I get the motor pack working well I will have the only yacht on the pond with a brake! Not a bad idea for someone with my lack of experiance in sailing.

Its 2255 hours over here so time for a shower and a large glass of malt.

Yours Colin H.

Neat looking Footy Jason, looks like you have a good full size trophy collection there too!

The Footy in my photo above is an own design 'Kittiwake', it is constructed by my ply on foam core method. Sails very well for such a short boat.

Thanks mate.
The trophies are from keelboat racing, not modeling. I use to do a lot of that before the old arthur-itis got me.
Your footy looks happy under sail!

Sure Roy,  I'd be happy to help. Where exactly are you having the problem?  The Ketch I had, had a simple swing-arm arrangement on the sailwinch. With the mizzin sheet attached just a little closer in on the swing-arm, to reduce its travel.  If it's not very clear in the picture, I might be able to come up with a drawing, let me know.

Roy,
Sorry, couldn't find the original drawings, so I made one up of my own efforts. (no one laugh at my squiggly lines! :-[ )  Hopefuly it will get across the gust of the idea.  I know there are many other ways to connect to the sailwinch, this is just the simplest and most direct way, if you have the room for the swing-arm, that is.

Also included some closeups from my old GoodSpeed, if you wanted to see the topside connections.

I did my pearl lugger with a system like I use one racing type boats. It has a drum winch below decks with a single line coming off the drum and up through a tube near the front mast. It goes up to the front of the deck- through a block and back to another block near the front mast and back right to the bow where it becomes an elastic jast before the last block. It's bitter end is attached to the bow sprit. This tackle has the jib sheet attached on one side and the 2 aft sails (main and mizzen) attached to the other. The main just runs back through a block at the mast and another below the boom and the mizzen goes back below decks at the main mast and comes back up through the wheelhouse to the mizzen boom.
 The elastic pulls against the winch to keep the tackle a bit tight and the sails pull their sheets out and are pulled in by the winch via the tackle.
Hope this helps.


The other way I do them is like the white yacht, the drum is on deck but it can be below deck for scale boats and have a return cord. The winch cord goes off the winch to a block and back to the other side of the winch spool where it winds on backwards with a seperater in the middle of the spool. There's a spring or would elastic as a link in the loop of cord for tension. The sheets come of this tackle on either side like the other system and run straight to the deck blocks under the booms or if it's below deck, up through tubes to the booms.

I think it was  rcgroups.com. For some reason, rcuniverse wouldn't upload them and I couldn't be bothered to resize them to see if that would work. No, I am not going to post a video and show everyone my poor sailing skills. Anyway, I haven't got a video and am still trying to work out how the point and shoot camera works. I like manual focus and am too used to 1/125 @ F16 with FP4 for a shot like that, with the added benefit of a claustrophobic dark room to follow. :-[

Hi Roy
I think you're thinking of Steve Middlebrook who sold a ketch called Fubar to Tasmania a while back. It was advertised on my site, but not mine.
The only 2 master I've ever sold was a schooner called "Dove". That had the jib sheeted to the middle of the deck with no boom. Didn't have a motor either.
Regards
Jason :)
