Patch Strings and 3 pathc kites
« on: August 15, 2022, 09:45:47 AM »
When I pull

First I really want head. Lots of head and not to have to ty to hard to get it. Then after the rest needs to follow smoothly. Not a bunched up rush or in fits and starts. As the head progresses the pole gets firmly to it's longest and then all is pure joy

So
1) WHY DO PEOPLE USE 3 PATCH KITES?

2) What are these spacer ropes on this North for? They pull hte head inside before  he body of the kite.  So to exit everything has to bundle past each other. Result - ball of kite. WIth a slow crew that ball is in the water

PS - you may need to wait a day before I can upload the photo. Quick route for this:
- take photo on phone
- whatsapp photo  to Dave C. or a group
-  go to PC and download the reduced size imagecoz and post (or screen grab, as that is the resolution allowed)

Not sure I want pictures of things bunched up or poles getting bigger.

We have 2 patches.
0patches we would need longer boats.
3 patches shorter sock needed but a bigger hole ideally.
Strops stagger the bunching.
I think there is a reason for the spreader being on the bottom patch but I can't remember at the moment why.

These little strops

After my bigger strop thoa morning i have re-jigged. The solution is a small strop on the top patch, ignore the bottom patch (for now).

If i give a gentle inclination, one get lots of head. Then progressively things get interesting around her front. The sprit grows. Then things get totally out of the bag.
