With reference to the deck hand rails:-
1. With the model
being so heavy and large,
I found that transportation to the sailing
venue, and the possibility of a reasonable walk from the parking area to the launch/waterside, that the handrails were the first items to suffer.
2. With the Mainsheet extending out over the railings, sometimes it would get snagged on one of the stansions.
3. The Genoa sheeting is really long and loose on the Lee side. it too could get snagged at times.
I am looking at getting new stansions and looking at installing them again, but with the Genoa fully rigged and sheeting operational, to see how it can be installed securely and reduced risk of snagging.😱
