Default Proboat sanibel

Just bought the Sanibel and it is really a great looking boat on the water. Has anyone had any problems adjusting the sails? The directions call for about 60 degrees when the sails are fully opened but it seems that they open to 90 degrees or more. The only way I could tighten them more would be to cut the line. Any suggestions.

Hi Philly,

When you close the sails, does the main boom come in the center of the boat?

If not, either the lines are too long, or the arm on the servo isnt in the right place.

Check everything before you start cutting lines...

Do you have a club around? the sailors there can no-doubt help you adjust your boat easier than via the internet.

Regards, Jan.
