"Shamrock V" J Boat

Haven't spent much time in the garage "aka Man Cave" lately, but I have put together some pieces for the next stage of the build. I took some time to work on the boom (made out of balsa sandwiched between Purple Heart), and the boom vang (modified Pekabe compression strut).

I have made a decision regarding the sail winch. I will be using a non-proportional Bremel winch that Bob Eger put together for me. Though it does not reflect the most recent proportional technology, I am thrilled with it's power (+/-1600 oz./in.), how it works, and how it was put together (thanks Bob!).

The attached pictures provide an update on the booms, and provide a glimpse into how Don Prough intended to place the sail winch, jib trim, and rudder servo. I am toying with following this layout; however, I'm also exploring mounting the winch and servo's so that the keel weight can be removed without moving anything.
