building Wheeler power-vangs

The Wheeler One Design (WOD) class allows for experimentation of the control system. Some Wheelers run with Tx controlled power-vangs designed and manufactured by Adrian Olsen. Power-vangs are not available at this time.
One estimate was $1700.00 for a power-vang system.

These pictures show the first stages of the a power-vang system in development that are based on conversations with Adrian Olsen. I've included cost of materials for reference.
HS-5805MG 343 oz in (21.4 ft lb)-$70.00 each (2X)
SS cylinder, piston & spring-$10.00
SS tangs $1.00
4:1 blocks (2X) $20.00 each
deck fairleads (2X) $10.00 each
+ $200.00 total
Note: Jib mount hull modification for is required but that estimate is not included. Contact George Rebeiro at GRP (831) 247-1428 for more information.
