hi Barry,
Looks great! and without a jib, your wing works great.

Here are a few pictures of my work bench. for scale the wing is 1.800 long and .390 wide.

Looks great Barry, I have a simular project here on Instructables "RC Wing Sail Catamaran", I will follow your progress with great interest. Good luck with your first sail, I can't wait here how it goes.

Hi Dan your project inspired me . I have been on the project for 4 weeks now and done 4 test sails . I like to say all went well but I have a lot of tuning to do .I have put a jib on to help tacking, which it has I pitch poled it in 15 knot , but sailed again in the afternoon with. better control 8 to 10 knots. It is a bit sluggish in light winds. but goes well when in the grove which is narrow. Got a lot to learn.

The hulls are 1mm ply sides & decks, bottoms fiber glass done in a female mould

That's a pretty nice model! Can you tell us a bit more about how you made it?
