I don't know if you have Monday off like us State Employees (Jeff Davis Birthday...good ole Jeff) but Capt. Murph and I plan to sail Monday Morning. It's getting where we don't get in enough sailing at the club sail so we try to make it up when we can....

Yeah that's where I smoke most everyone...on the beat.

Nope, wish I could come but... that dang "work" thing...

I had to take today off to take a horse up to Birmingham to see a specialist so I don't need to be burning more vacation time. I'd love to do an after 5 sail one day if we have breeze.

Off to do some rigging!! have to get ready for tomorrow!!

Not a thread hijack - just a quick question. What kind of horse? We are into Arabian and Saddlebred - breed and show.

Just curious. Thanks.

Back to r/c sailing.

We have four. 2 Thoroughbreds, 1 Trakehner and 1 Hanoverian. They're 3-day event horses.

thanks so much. the schematic confuses me though. i don't understand how it would work as wired. i don't understand how the 2 switches work the relay to power the rx. i'm no electrician, but when you close the magnetic switch all i see is a dead short to the battery. not real familiar with wiring a relay. do the magnetic switches stay closed? it would seem to me the 2 switches need to goto the relay to open, and close the contact/switch inside it.
