For years I have been intending to document the Merlin Rocket control line systems, and I have now made a start. Go to the link below to see 'circuit diagrams' for the shrouds, lowers, rig raking system and vang controls. Please let me know ASAP of any errors!
Also on the same web page is a link to historical data. the first item entered here is a lines drawing of a Holt 'Banana Boat'.

Hi Keith,
Thanks for posting that.
I think there may be an error on the shrouds and lowers page?
The 'single and becket block' on the lowers appears to have a loop of rope going to the 'back to back' block. I think that should be anchored to the boat somewhere?
Or am I confused?
Cheers,
Chris MR3442

Chris, thanks for that. I bet that's not the only mistake! Diagram now corrected.
