    A sailor built in 1988 and brought back to life this year!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
    Special: Drive and Motor Type = Wind! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    A few pictures / information about the sail controls . . .
    Had to resort to simple things!

    First the sail winch. It is a Hitec type HS-785HB with
    karbonite gears and ball bearing
    6V / Speed 1.38 Sec 360ยฐ / Torque 13.2kg (183.3oz.in)

    Who doesn't know the yoyo for admission tickets? Exactly created for easy tensioning of the sailing line.
    But how did I build the guide of the rope? With spools of thread from my wife's sewing machine!
    She wasn't thrilled. . . I bought her new ones for the sake of peace of mind.
    I got the scheme of the rope routing from a buddy, but I will revise the whole thing without using a yoyo. (Less pressure on the sailing servo)
    There are still ideas to come, but I already have an idea box
    Instead of the yoyo, a closed rope ring should be connected directly to the sail winch. The tension should be ensured by a lateral spring. A scheme of my idea follows so that everyone understands me, or my English typing!


    Take a look at the photos. Questions are gladly answered

    Other Data and pictures will follow . . . Please be patient, thanks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hello Sir Admiral Ronald . . .
    Can you please tell me which line you use for your sails with the sail servo.
    I think I have made a mistake here and not used the right type of rope. after a certain time, it warps and becomes longer, which leads to problems and knotting!!! ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž
    Regards, Michel-C.

    It seems like a lot of extra work to control your sails on just a pond boat which is not racing. I could see if you were sailing a bigger vessel this type of sail control is better than a servo with a control arm.

    My schooner uses a single servo and a control arm for two sails. The jib is preset.

    My first build, the Wianno Senior, also uses a control arm and hauls in both the jib and main. Also the second built Folkboat uses one control arm. Very simple to setup and use. No tension to keep lines tight.

    Sembra un sacco di lavoro extra per controllare le tue vele solo su una barca da laghetto che non sta correndo. Potrei vedere se stavi navigando una nave piรน grande questo tipo di controllo della vela รจ meglio di un servo con un braccio di controllo.

    La mia goletta usa un singolo servo e un braccio di controllo per due vele. Il jib รจ preimpostato.

    La mia prima build, il Wianno Senior, utilizza anche un braccio di controllo e trasporta sia il jib che il principale. Anche il secondo Folkboat costruito utilizza un braccio di controllo. Molto semplice da configurare e utilizzare. Nessuna tensione per mantenere le linee strette.

    Whenever possible use two push rods on the servo control arm to your rudder. Especially in a sailboat as this will put less stress on the servo.

    Quando possibile, utilizzare due aste di spinta sul braccio del servocomando del timone. Soprattutto in una barca a vela poichรฉ ciรฒ sottoporrร  meno stress al servo.

    Hello Doug,
    Leider hat es mir bei einem Segeltรถrn mit sehr starkem Wind meine ganze Arbeit im Schiffsinneren zerschlagen. Vermute, dass ich hier einiges sehr verstรคrken muss.
    Etwa 1 1/2 Std gesegelt bis dann die Windbรถe die Takelage zu sehr beanspruchte.
    Reparatur ist angesagt . . .
    Gruss aus der Schweiz
    Michel-Claude
    Ps๐Ÿ˜ƒas 2te Photo wรคre die richtige Lage

    For our English friends from all over: ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Hello Doug,
    Unfortunately, on a sailing trip with very strong winds, it smashed all my work inside the ship. I suspect that I will have to reinforce some things here very much.
    About 1 1/2 hrs sailing until then the gust of wind put too much strain on the rigging.
    Repair is the order of the day ...
    Greetings from Switzerland
    Michel-Claude
    Ps: The 2nd photo would be the right position

    Hello everyone!
    I havent forgot you! I'm renovating all the electronics because during the last wind break no one was on site to push my sailboat with another motorboat.
    So I waited until the "Reine des Vents" thought of sailing back to me. .
    a beer, a sandwich and a lot of patience.
    I solve this problem with a water pump.
    Follow pictures. . . . .
    Your Mike

    No panic Mike,
    We're a curious bunch here๐Ÿ˜‰ but no rush.

    Hope you had fun with the 'pirates', guess you both need a rest now!
    All the best, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hello Nerys and Doug!
    I ask for a little patience, am collecting the data from my boats and my sailing winch solutions with drawings.
    At the moment I'm on the weekend with my wife. We are allowed to look after our grandchildren for a few days so that our daughter and her husband can relax from the little pirates.
    Greetings from hobbyists, Mike

    Nice looking boat, gives the impression she would sail well. As Doug says, more information about her would be good.

    Cheers, Nerys
