    • 6 metre boats aren't too exacting  as to equipment.     For a rudder servo, my preference is for a metal geared and "waterproof" servo. My current Revival renovation will probably end up with a servo from the Savox line as I find these reliable , probably something like the  SW0231MG.  Winch servos are a bit thinner on the ground in terms of choice , compared to the rudder.  The obvious ones to look at are the PJ Sails PJS 36 model  (http://www.pjsails.co.uk/Pekabe2015.PDF) or an RMG from Bill Green, depending on what he has  (Smartwinch UK).     Looking further afield, there is a guy in Holland who produces winch servos that would fit the bill  (http://www.pda-winches.nl/)     or the  ones available from  these guys in Australia  (https://www.radiosailingshop.com.au/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=160. I have looked at the bigger Hitec sail servos such as the HS-785  but they have "plastic"  composite gears and I a m not convinced as to their life  potential on larger boats, perhaps others who have used them may care to comment.            I was lucky enough to have bought a Tornado winch from a UK company  who unfortunately are no longer around (Titan Winches)  which is going into theRevival.
    • Just wondering if anyone in the uk  produces these hulls?  or if plans are available for either of them.   thanks 
    • Greetings all, I have decided to move to  sailing and potentially a 6M  just wondering what everyone is using for steering servo  and winch equipment?    thanks
