Took my boat out for short tuning session. It sure sails well. Need to figure out optimum position for the swivel on the jib boom. Earlier post said 3.5 to four inches back from the end of the jib boom, thinking maybe try that from where the headstay is on the boom to get the jib boom to swivel out better down wind. Also going to add bungee to the jib topping lift to keep it tensioned. I did add a longer arm to the servo that tensions the backstay, the jury is still out on how much tension to set on the backstay at loose. Will work all of the this out in the next month or two. Ryan
