Default RC Sailboat Rigging and Fittings

Hi! All

I am in my 1st craft build and am trying to custom build this one. I need help, determining fittings and rigging for mast/boom connections and with the use of two separate spool wench servos, one rudder servo and one motor I need to find out what is recommended by you Pros.

Respects

How big? What type of boat? Is it being done for looks or action?
Several servo manufacturers make sailwinch servos, although a wench would be welcome.
There are fittings manufacturers like sailsetc, with lots of information on their sites.

The hull is 40", with a 8 1/2" beam. I am making this a mock up and plan on sailing her for pleasure. If all goes well I will have another hull ready for the real deal, this week.

Please Advise
