Re: Rudder Mods

looks like a great mod. my biggest issue is the pulley system it does not let it come all the way up to the locked position. how much does this help the momentum bringing the rudders up?

Re: bolt rope issue

its a nylon rope that i can't splice plus i don't see how that would stop it from sliding through the pocket it sits in. would stitching through it and the sail be a bad idea?

bolt rope issue

the bolt rope keeps bunching up in the sail. there is no knot on either end. i put an overhand knot in it but it had bad effects. can anyone advise me how to handle this issue.is there a way to terminate the bolt rope at the top and bottom of the sail?
