The plan (works really well on my computer) is for the mast to reduce
from 15m to 8m off the deck using a single line. The sail is hoisted
before the top mast is raised, then both sail and top mast go up
together. Pretty simple in theory. The engineering is a bit complex,
as is the construction, although we have a few tricks we will be
trying for the latter.

Until mine is working, we are not quoting on them for anyone else, but
mine should be complete 'real soon now'. Any specific questions,
please ask.
