    A nice looking boat, looks like it needs some sail adjustment. camber needs to be put into both sails by moving the clew towards the bows slightly to form a gap between of about an inch at the midpoints of the booms to the sails.
    An adjustable boom bang would help to put twist ion the leach of the mainsail. Some could also be added by increasing back stay tension. A leach line on the jib would also allow twist to to be introduced.
    These are just observations from the photo which should make it sail better.
    Canโ€™t really say without seeing the boat.
    Enjoy sailing her

    OK I've had this boat for almost 10 years a thought maybe its less then 2000mm so I did a bit of research, she out of production now but this is what I found on a thread at RC groups

    It's one meter long, about 39.4".
    RC Ocean Going Racing Yacht 2.2m


    Spec.
    Length : 1000mm
    Height : 2200mm
    Weight : 3565g
    Area of Sails : 0.52m2
    Ballast weight: 1.3kg
    Water depth: 50cm+

    And to Answer RodC
    I can get the boat in my SUV with the seats down and the mast laying down. there are not a lot of spots I can sail her, she needs a lot of water and catches a lot of weeds but I do get her on the lake once in a while, and unfortunately she is in a class of her own. I don't know of any one with a boat this size.

    Actually Rod it's over 6feet.
    6.56ft (6'6.72") to be precise.
    (1m=3.28ft)
    Old money or new; that's one massive and beautiful model.๐Ÿ˜€
