Synchronized Righting Arm

Seeing last week's COW reminded John Bonn of a past project where he created a righting arm plot that automatically updated when the load changed. Seeing the four commands in the RA_Screen_Plot wizard brought a renewed interest into this old idea. John decided to see if he could simplify the run file for the synced RAH and at the same time get it work in LOAD EDITOR.

The result is the following two files which we hope you will download and try out for yourself.

Credit for the original idea of a synced righting arm plot goes to famed GHS trainer Brian Thomas (a real person).
