    I don't think so yet, but at this rate it can't be far off!

    Update: so we set all the luff lines as per service bulletin and the middle line was just at the upper end of the tolerance so we dropped it one hole.
    The next thing was to reverse the hang strap which was installed with the hole at the rear. This brought the bar back a bit but still a bit too far forward.
    Next was to set the tips to the second hole from the top as it was currently in the middle (third) hole. This had the effect of dropping the tips and increasing trim speed to bring the bar to a comfortable position. Our only worry with this was that it might cause a wing drop when near the stall but this turned out not to be the case. It's now ready for a few hours flying and a re-check then to make sure the sail has settled-in.
    Thanks to everyone for the help. It just goes to show once again the value of a forum instead of social media!
    Someone else may need this advice in the future and it will be here for them.

    Cheers.

    And the silage has been cut as well so we have the whole field now until the grass grows again. Which could be September the way things are going!
