Description

This sailing vessel has sails that actually work, and its fully capable of sailing into the wind! Its also equipped with retractable square rigged sails to give you a boost going downwind. You might need some background knowledge of sailing to use this, or if your struggling you can ask me in the comments!

Important info

  • You will need some very basic info on how to sail, and if your struggling, like I said, ask in the comments. Or if you just want to drive this thing around without the hassle to sail it I put a functional engine on it.

  • This boat sails best in 30mph winds with no gusts

  • The square rigged sails only work downwind so keep that in mind

  • And if you realize your drifting to the side a lot then all you need to do is let the sails out a bit.

  • Also ignore camera 3 and cockpit view, I kinda forgot to move them

Controls

  • Roll: to steer

  • Vtol: Trim main sails (triangle sails)

  • Trim: Trim square rigged sails

  • Gear: lower/raise square rigged sails

  • AG1: engine (for if you want a boost or don't feel like sailing)

    Every once in a while it seems to get hung up almost like I've hit an invisible rock? Still fun and great looking ship though.

    I'm 13 and I don't have basic knowledge on how to sail but hopefully this build might inspire me to sail in real life.

    @YamatoAirlines search up an image of "points of sail" it may help you with sail trim for different angles of the boat and the wind.

    @YamatoAirlines Sails are kind of like big wings, air rushing over them creates "lift". If you're wanting to sail into the wind (Closed Hauled/Reach) or perpendicular to it (Beam Reach), You're gonna want to trim the sails so that they present a smaller profile to the oncoming wind but not razer thin or you lose speed.
    I'm not quite sure how sails work in SP but this ship replicates a lot of the irl characteristics pretty well. If you're going directly downwind you let out the sails all the way so it shows the most surface area.

    I used to sail 420's and Lasers and I must say this is excellent, probably one of the best sailboats I've played around with :)

    @Concordo we can feature a build with zero upvotes. We feature according to quality and our liking of the build, not its popularity.
