Sails logo and new booms - Posted: 9th Sep 2018
The sails need a little repair and Singers fabric glue really worked well. Still have fittings to add to main boom, but you get the idea. Thinking about how the plans rig the sheets. Will try it their way first, but looks like the servo is at a mechanical disadvantage. Plans say max wind is 10 mph! That’s way too low.
Black booms are made from aluminum arrow with fittings made from brass sheet and copper wire.
Reinforced keel to bulb connection with fiberglass cloth and West Systems epoxy.

Northwind 36/600 rebuild - Posted: 9th Sep 2018
ABC Hobbies put out this ABS hull kit with mostly ABS fittings. I bought one used on eBay and it had a broken bulb to keep connection. I bought another on eBay with the same problem. I rigged one up and the normal tension broke the jib boom as it sat overnight. So the kit has design flaws. But the hull lines are beautiful- she’s a fine looking racer. Making aluminum beams and reinforcing bulb joint with 3/4 ounce glass cloth and epoxy.
