question for the team

I have a question for you boys. I am in the middle of re-sheeting the boat with some good quality fishin line to replace the cotton string the factory provides.

My question is when you fellows do this, are you using a continuous strand or two separate lines. One for the main and one for the jib.

I have posted a picture of the Nirvana that Dennis did, and even if expand the picture, I can't see if each line tied to the peg inside the servo box or it is one line knoted and looped like the stock arrangment.

I posed Chidago's boat, and again, even when I blow up the image I can't tell on his either. I posted a couple images that show the stock set up for comparison.

I don't know that it matters, or if there is some actual reason for the way the factory did it.

Thank you
Boomer

Oh, I was thinkin Elvis and "little more satisfaction" the theme song for the TV show "Las Vegas". Just a thought.

Boomer, when i reworked mine recently, i decided to use two seperate lines so that future mods would be more convenient. JMHO

Adlib : My neighbor and me have been using Hobby Lobby size 02 thread for sheeting, etc, Comes in several colors and is large enough to not get caught in small crevices, like some fishing line. Spool is quite generous and fairly cheap.

Thank you for your report! I posted a picture of the line I am using and a close up of my boat that shows the factory uses one sheet/line to do both sails.
I wonder the reason for doing this - if yours work properly, I guess it doesn't really matter which way it is done.

Do know if Dennis modified the servo arm on the HP Nirvana? I couldn't detect any sign one way or the other. Just curious.
Thanks
