    thanks, I have been updating my Smaragd for the last years to make her as I would like. Almost running out of ideas apart from making new main sail and jib.
    Apart from that hoping for some nice sailing moments,, for now I think its too coldπŸ€”

    good morning, as in the picture a pretty simple setup for a Genoa control.
    the green line is the loop, it rolls on and off at the same time moving the line towards one side and the other.
    the red line is the control to extend the sheet from the sail. in order to sail tight to the wind or for the wind.
    on the green sheet there is a ring fixed. all the way extended to one side it is on the end point. When the green line moved to the other side it is on the end point on the other side.
    through the ring the red line can move tight or wide.

    for the dragon as this is a smaller boat, check out YouTube Genoa on Micro Magic. You will see easy options also !

    Hi Robbe,
    I've just seen this -I'm currently building a Dragon from scratch, have yet to get into rigging, sheet lines etc. I plan to fit it with a genoa. If you could illustrate the sheet/pulley/servo set up you have on your genoa rigged yacht and post I'd be very appreciative. By the way your boats look very good -makes one quite envious!
    Regards,,, Tony A........

    Hi yes they are all seaworthy the boat to the left is rigged out to take a genoa sail but l use a jib sail on her. the boat to the far right is rigged for jib sail only
    The boat in the center is rigged for a genoa sail (two servos) is going into drydock she is looking a little dowdy and just needs a little bit of love and care.
    The servo set up inside all of them is per Robbe,s plan the only thing l have added was an extra switch so l can charge the battery without removing it.
