There is another video of our winch working in a Lintel MMX on our website

The most common one I sell is the 23g but some prefer the 18 to keep the rig weight done

Hope this helps

Hi David

Just read your interview in the Seattle IOM Mag. Brilliant!

When you design a new boat, do you draw the design or do you take some foam and start to shape, as a starting point.

Many thanks Peter

Peter who?
Thanks for the kind word. My last 4 designs have been done using an old CAD program called Hullform. It's free if anyone wants to try at designing their own boat. search Hullform Bluepeter. I hire someone to do the CNC milling. In my early design/build days, I used paper and pencil, then progressed to pencil and drafting (frosted) mylar to lay one plan over another to compare the differences.

The joy and self-satisfaction I get some sailing my own designs far exceeds sailing someone else's. I encourage others to do the same.

This was a 26mm drum on the MMX.
We also do a 32mm drum for IOM's for those
who like a little more sheet speed although we are
pleased with the 26mm drum.
It works very well for fast gybe.
Orders are now being taken for the Titan.

Thanks

Gordon - for multihull use, what is the largest diameter drum one can purchase (special order) ??? And obviously, what torque numbers would be applicable to the larger drums?

Hi Dick,
If your are looking for a custom drum then we could supply one.
What size drum do you have in mind?
Obviously torque would decrease and speed will increase with a large diameter drum.
We have tested the torque in the Titan that is in the spec. as we find this gives a true measurement rather than extrapolating and not being accurate.

Thanks.

Would a large logo on the sails get passed

Probably won't get past. If the logo was prominent enough to get noticed, it is likely too big and will get tossed. Normal sailmaker size logos in the corners are expected...

interesting question the answer is 'No' the makers logo has to be inside a 2 inch radius
There is a ruling about how many logo's permitted on sails as I recently found out on my Power Sails which failed because of 2 makers logos on the main sail and jib. Powersails have a logo in the corner of there sails but also a very small emblem on the luff these were not allowed so I had to remove them to comply if any of you guys are using Gerry's sails I would remove the luff logo he has been informed of the error.

Not sure if he was talking about a sailmaker's logo ---- or ---- some other logo or decoration ????? I don't think ISAF 20 covers anything "other" than a sailmaker's mark. Maybe I'm too liberal in that opinion - I could be wrong?
