    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

    RE: RC Sailboat Rigging and Fittings

    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.

    RE: RC Sailboat Rigging and Fittings

    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.

    Ask in the sailboat forum.
    You will get more help.
    Over the years I have spent nearly all of my money on boats, beer, and women. The rest of it I just wasted.
