I have added some shroud rollers/covers to try to prevent the genoa sheets snagging on the chain plates/bottle screws when changing tack. Fishers do not sail 'close hauled' so changing tack will be a motorised turning-maneouvre through about 150* I suspect!
....forgot to mention that the aforementioned covers will be pushed all the way down to capping rail level when the chainplate bolts are shortened. There will also be an ant-snag wire added to further reduce possiblities of sheet-snagging!
Lovely solution of the Genoa. I think it will work 🙂

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.
The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.
The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
