Hi Dani,

I guess the model is larger than what the kit provides. A beautiful sight on the lake, how much lead did you put into the extra keel, and can the sails be RC controlled (to brass) as well ?

Nils,

Thank you.

The model is about 1.6m long on deck, and about 2.1m long with bowsprit.

The lead keel is 18kg, and is removeable.  Overall sailing weight (lead keel + model) is 35.4kg.

The yards are rotated by R/C.  The foresails, foremast yards, mainmast yards and spanker boom are on 4 separate servos.  The rudder is also R/C controlled.
