1510 "mega wedge"

Postby maitmandel » Thu Feb 26, 2004 4:12 pm

hi,

has anyone here completed the so called "mega wedge" on an arc 1510 that bob from lekite.com.au talked about in arcusers yahoo group?

i've tried posting to the group and bob directly, but no answer so far.
also there are no more pictures about it on bob's web page.

i'd be thankful for any info on the subject.

great winds,
mait

By the way, you can use tape first, then sew it, or just leave the tape on if you're worried about sewing it. Tim taped one on his 1120 I think and its still taped (over a year of use). He used SpinTape that he bought (expensive but sticks like a mutha) from one of the local sail shops.

hi,

no, that one i have done already.
i mean these "newer" wedges that Bob Dawson quite recently described in arcusers group.

about 5-6 wedges altogether that turned the sleeping beaty into a raving beast.
