    Most S/B's I know of are using the ServoCity gearbox. I'm using this one https://www.servocity.com/tm-400-180-servo-gearbox with a Hitec HS7950TH as the servo https://www.servocity.com/hs-7950th-servo programmed to rotate 180 degrees. It's got PLENTY of power...

    My S/B sails are Trispi 40, although I think the Trispi material is getting hard to come by now too. I've seen some guys using CPM505 for S/B sails recently. You can get it here I think http://www.rcyachts.com/cpm505.htm

    Merlin at 75 mph

    The guys over the years that have kept Ragtime going have done it right. Let's hope Bill and his gang in Santa Cruz will do the same with Merlin.

    Thank God Merlin is back in loving hands. Hopefully some of "Leif the Butcher's" mess can be undone!

    Great Fun....sunk on the way up the coast on a delivery from SoCal to NorCal a few years ago.

    Dude, usually when I'm on a boat that spins out, we at least try to fight it with helm. We don't have pics of what went on before the initial impact, but this pic clearly shows the helm is down which is helping spin the Farr into the Lancer... ...and it was suggested above that the Lancer should have tried to avoid the Farr. They could've either bore off across your bow (probably not easy cause they were likely loaded up too)....or tacked, which would've made them sitting ducks in front of you as burdened/tacking vessel.

    First off glad no one was hurt. Can anyone explain why in all of the pics the Farr seems to be turning up into the Lancer? Granted the rudder was probably loaded up and it might not have done much but WTF? And what if the Lancer tries to pull off a tack at the last minute and the Farr still nails him....then it's his fault for tacking too close.
