Dominion 2-HW-Trapeze Power Ballast System


I may be able to eliminate the trap wires from the D2 version of this system since it is only carrying a maximum of 2 lbs. That will reduce some drag if it works.
No word form the sailmaker yet.....

Dominion 2-HW Foil Cant System


These two shots show the foil cant system for the D2 and the resulting change to the angle of heel of the boat. The cant system is controlled between two positions with epoxy coated balsa wedges.
This is probably the most important part of the foil system after the foil rake adjustment.
Getting closer to getting in the water so I wanted to review this setup.

----------------------

These two shots show the maximum optimum angle of heel of the boat at minimum and maximum foil cant. Cant is the change in the angle of the foil athwartship(side to side).
At zero cant the max optimum angle of heel is 7.5 degrees. At 4.5 degrees cant, the maximum optimum angle of heel of the boat is 15 degrees.
In both images, the foil is adjusted for maximum altitude which is adjustable plus or minus about 2".
