    Hi everyone,

    I have made a sail kontiki. Have’nt tried it yet. Does anyone know how i would release / drop the long line once the kontiki is out? Thanks heaps.

    ahhhh you can either have hooks commin off the main line with a sinker about 30m from the kontiki and then another one futher up the line after all the hooks or have a system devised with a barley sugar so when that melts the hooks drop and the sail also drops making it easier to bring in

    Thanks a lot for your help….

    i have it attached to a long line with stoppers/traces. i have a sustem already in place for the sail drop.

    i think i will have to have the traces between the two sinkers like you sugested. the barley sugar system sounds a bit too tricky.

    the barley sugar can help for the sail drop
