John, Do you have some photos of that setup?

 Not much  Doc.  You mean the wings?


 I can do a saggy halyard and not very tidy roll after a longish/breezy  sail from Coromandel...




 why those fenders are even there I have no idea, lazy probably.

Borrowed a new set of sails yesterday just to see if it warranted spending $5k on a $10k boat,the answer was NO.old sails going to windward boat 4.6knt in sw/s 15knt avg,new sails 4.8knt so not a huge difference,angle to wind old sails vs new about 2 degrees which could/would be significant over a straight line,but does it warrant new sails,no  at some stage they will need replacing due to age of material/stitching


You went sailing yesterday so here's a list for  now when finished come back as I have another list Grr.

capricorn has 2 small flexible solar panel 


but unfortunately their top clear film seems to be dying from UV exposure


using some clear vinyl sourced from vorpal blade have made a soft/clear flip back cover to hopefully save the actual solar cells, here shown half flipped back
