Hi Manny

What would you recommend?

I've been toying with going with a traditional Bermuda sail plan to start and then start experimenting. I'm making the keel removable in hopes that I can play with different weights for the keel ballast. Hopefully I can make it so it can chase down a Victoria on a light air day. Do I have a chance at that???

I have some 550 size helicopter blades I will use for the rudder and the keel.

I've made up enough keel box material to hopefully get three RG65's going.

I like the idea of the Z bend rigs. I've seen the new sail plans with a large head and square sail.

My thinking is the RG65 is an experimental type of boat so I will probably first build something that I know how to tune.

But I'm open to suggestions.

Rick
