Thats alot of Burban and ciggaretts. To me, thats a little over kill. I don't think it has to be that complicated. I'll keep pondering the situation I'm sure there is an easy way to do the same thing.

DanL has a great working crossover jibs. The detailed description is in his Siren thread and in the square sail systems thread. I have a system that should work pretty well in my Kruzenahtern thread (recently posted, too). Mine is yet untested in the water, though. To use it for multiple headsails, simply attach multiple sheets to the same control line.

I have been looking at both systems and I like them. I will study them some more, Thank you Sir.

I'm going with one fore sail for now, the fore sail and main will be run off two servo's with a Y conector. I'll do this untill I see how she is going to handle. What would be the best sheet line to use, I have some 10Lb breaded fishing line I think would be good.

Sounds like a good plan to keep it simple-

Main and stays'l only- you can still rig the boat as a cutter but just fly the two sails (stays'l is the aft most of the two jibs)

you might look at adding a club to the bottom of your stays'l to allow it to be self tacking.

I may have missed it but have you chosen your sail servos yet? there are a couple of different ways you might approach setting up a simple two sail rig-

10 pound (braided dacron?) would probably be adequate but you might find heavier line like 70lb test, braided dacron to be less 'fiddly' to handle and would appear more 'scale'.

I'll take some pick's tomarrow to show what I have going. I owned a 30 foot Catalina and sailed all over puget sound, but never sailed a two masted boat, alway's wanted one, so if I give the wrong nominclature, sorry but I think you know what I'm talking about.

Here is the setup I'm going to use for now anyway. I have several type's of sail servo's. I have the wench type, don't quite know how to use those, I have the old Dumas wench and that's the methode I'm planning to incororate in my boat. It's simple and works fine. I just don't see the reason for all that mechanical nightmare just to set a sail. I think they are a work of art but not for me.

Perfection- simple and effective.

the old Dumas geared wench should work well.

I thought I would post some pictures of where I am on the Archer. I had to do my own version on the side rails sense they were not in the kit, got this on a trade and some parts were missing. My wife made the sail's, she did ok on the main, but the jib well we have to do that one over, I just have to figure out how to tell her She took 13 # of shot to get her to the water line. I plan to take her out next week if the weather let's me.

I might suggest that you ask your sailmaker to make a new stays'l (flown from the stem instead of the bowsprit) and use that instead of your large jib- you might find that your current sail plan will have the CE a little far forward. Just a guess/opinion based on your posted pictures.
