Octave Jib Booms

Ray Joyce continues to develop the Octave prototype.
Notice that all adjustments use ‘finite’ steps located by means of pins/holes or notches to guarantee accuracy, replicability, and prevent movement under varying loads.
The design envelope of Octave is being mapped with a view to optimising the eventual production boat with an emphasis on upwind/downwind rig crossovers.
