    Yep. Don't know why it is such a big deal. Track is cheap. Go long.

    You bet. Lower the pole car to near level with the upper lifeline and clip on. On that blue boat a pole of around 6ft would be about right. You need a new sheet led outside of the lifelines and off you go. It works, especially in a big breeze. Yeah, no thanks. I have never seen it either Bob, and I think it is a bad idea. I see much broken alloy tubing in the future.

    I used screw lock biners, better load rating and wont unclip or catch on anything.

    I think the ability to adjust is important and worth the effort. Probably the most often you will use it is two sail reach passage making on a set course with a shifting breeze where you don't really want to tack. I hate seeing the top 3rd of a headsail flogging itself to death because the lead angle is wrong.

    Thanks Bob. I think I have missed the electric drive convo, will have to go back and catch up.

    Bob/Dave, Is there specs available somewhere for the air requirement? I like the idea of what you are doing but have never seen any specs to go by.

    Beating with full main and jib into 28 knots AWS seemed to be no trouble. The mast does not seem light to me, maybe I got one of the IRC masts because I think of it as heavy not light. Jonathan McKee uses one on his DARK STAR which has the additional load of water ballast. Yours is a class spec rig.

    RM had nothing to do with my question...it was more about likely sailplan under pressure...And by the way can anybody just go get IRC'ed. Where do I sign up? Wanna go offshore in a Farr40? Pass RM has everything to do with that! The higher the RM, the more loading and pressure the rig will experience. Not going to bother with your other points, you have no idea.

    Lets also not forget the plethora of Farr 40's that have been IRC'ed and are used offshore. I've met this Bob designer guy, even stayed at his shack a few times. I get the impression he has the whole RM thingy down pat.
