Re Ocean racing and Phantom yachts.to get the full potential of these

nice hulls mods must be made,the sails need to be cut and panelled into

4 sections to get shape,the plastic shroud attachments should be metal,eg

aluminium,the under deck area needs reinforcing to take the loads, the bulbs need to be cut in half along the centre lines,and filled with lead,to give 2kgs,the winch needs replacing with a stronger one,egVSD-11YMB to pull in the sheets under heavy wind load,and this makes a fantastic 1 meter yacht the shrouds should be better,stronger

material.Happy sailing,Raymondo,Queensland Australia.

    Sailcut CAD is a great program for designing your sails.
