Hi Kevin,

I am afraid it is true, I really don't want to but I have not sailed for over a year now due to back problems.

To me, the only thing worse than back problems is death. Constant pain that effects every aspect of your life and doesn't end. I've been there, hoping you're able to get some relief as I did. To me, trying to understand what it does to a person's outlook is like a male trying to identify with the pain of childbirth. Sorry for going off topic but I wince seeing the words "back problems."

Sorry to hear that, Ed. I hope you can recover and relieve the pain. I broke my back in an airplane crash and now the arthritis is getting stronger.

Ed,
Do you have a template of the sail arm that I could use?
Thanks,
Pierre

Hi Pierre,

All measurements are from the center of the servo.

Jib arm is 3 1/2" long. The line goes thru the jib arm at 2 11/16"

Main arm is 4 1/8" long. The line goes thru the main arm at 3 7/8"

The servo is offset so there is equal clearance of the arm with the hull.

Hope this helps,

Ed
