(Forum) Spray rails by Peter501 (Petty Officer)
Hi Dave Thanks for taking the time to reply to my query, yes you are correct I will be using a brushless 2200 C3 Lipo so not a lot of weight. Your advise will be used and I will now add spray rails I did think it would be the case but always a second opinion is always nice.

(Forum) How to sail yachts by Dave M (Fleet Admiral!)
Hi Colin Not rocket science, very simple really. There will be a rudder servo and some form of winch to pull in and release the sails via cords, one for the mainsail and one for the jib. Winches can be either of the arm type or use a drum. Basic designs usually use a simple elongated arm on a powerful servo. Control is simply use of the rudder to control direction and use of the winch to control t...  Posted: 2 days ago
