Im GOLD now thanks everyone!

Controls:
VTOL = pull main sail right - left
Roll = Push rudder right - left
Trim = adjust rudder
Activate1 = pull stay sail right (the default position is on the left)
Activate2 = Wave simulator
Activate3 = Activate engines (max 10mph w/ no wind)
Activate4 = Turn night lights on
LandingGear = Drop anchor (also turns off bow and stern lights and turns masthead lights on if AG4 is activated)

Camera 1 = Pilot view
Camera 2 = Orbit view

Builder's Notes:
- This boat is best used at 25 - 55 mph winds
- First, adjust wind to 25 mph blowing directly from the stern of the boat then slowly turn the boat to a desired angle up to 90° from the wind. This boat cant sail upwind :( If anyone knows how to make sailboats sail upwind please comment below.
- the sail design is, as far as I know, original and in theory you could furl/unfurl it with correct settings on the winches. I will revise this so it could do that once winches are tougher.

Description:

Carina is a 1932 design of the naval architect Alexander Alexandrovski. She is 25ft long from bow to stern with 5ft bowsprit, 7.8ft beam, 8.8ft tall with 5ft draft and weighs 3.8 tonnes. She has a full keel design modified for strong currents, winds and coastline of the Krakabloa Atoll Channel. Her design allowed Carina to set out in any weather with minimal crew aboard.

Carina was first employed as a fishing vessel but, due to her speed and maneuverability, was re-purposed to ferry local maritime pilots to and from larger ship to assist in safe navigation of the channel. She could quickly arrive at and easily lie alongside larger ships for safe transfer of pilots. Carina was equipped to remain on station for days or even weeks, awaiting arrivals outside the channel.

Carina's current owner found her as a hulk of a ship as she was left to rot in a field after the previous owner died. After two years of restoration she sails again as a classic cruising yacht.

    @SpiritusRaptor I have moth 1.4 and hydroptere 1.1 uploaded I think. I’ll see what else I have to upload. I’m not really sure how other people will find the controls, as I made them to be easy to use on mobile. You might have to change a few things.

    You need to upload them though!

    Sounds like you have found the ‘sweet spot’ for sailing!
    Let me check them out!

    I’ve been experimenting with many different sailboats and have found a few things. To get it going upwind, you must use a wing part facing up, so that the air will move over it the same easy it would move over the wind if it was attached to a plane. The other thing you need is a lot of foil surface in the water. Also use wings for this. It helps to have a super basic super light Hull, as this allows you to get lots of speed and reduce sideways slip. I’ve uploaded a few of my sailboats, and have been quite successful in getting them going upwind at ~ 3 times the wind speed while on hydrofoils. Downwind can go as much as 4 times. My fastest boat which is not uploaded can achieve 6 times, with wind up to 45. Beyond that it becomes extraordinary unstable and hard to control. I suggest you check out the moth 1.4 I have uploaded. It is rather easy to catch onto. For best results, use 35 mph wind. @SpiritusRaptor

    I think its doable... I would only do it to the main sail, and have the foresail just for looks. But anyways, your fantastic yacht is done and uploaded, so maybe the next one. Feel free to reach out to people for advice!

    @SpiritusRaptor Thanks! I tried doing that.. it didnt work.

    I also tried studying this but could not understand it at all. It probably has to do with its oversized wing as as sail. So far I could not replicate how it moves upwind so easily.

    From memory you need to use wing parts as sails and set them to flat in order to create lift and therefore a force that can move the ship upwind... very nice build by the way!

    Great build, sailing boats can’t sail upwind per se. If I remember my dinghy days you can sail 45 degrees (or there about) to the direction of wind and have to continually ‘tack’ (change direction) through the wind heading to the other 45 degree angle. So the path of a sailing boat going upwind will essentially resemble a zigzag.

    @BogdanX Cthulhu won, damn him. He raised the boat up again tho plus he gave me a cup of coffee after the incident which is nice.

    Sailing upwind is called tacking. I means you sail in a zigzag course using the sail at different angles. It’s kinda hard and I’m not very good at it (I’ve done some sailing)
