Wish I was just starting to build now and following your lead....
Very nice design concept.

I know that you know....just some additional bits....
- The drums require 4 stacked tracks of two different diameters. That adds height that needs to be designed in. Diametser can be much smaller if tension is controlled and guides for brace travel into teh drum are added.
- Another servo for the headsails, if you take that approach, is needed up front.
- If a headsail servo is used, the center servo for teh spanker needs only one arm.
- You may need about 4.5 inches of travel on the mainmast servo and a bit less on the fore based on my posted test results.
