    Hi Nerys Glad you liked. Always interest in our sailing barges and there is certainly much enjoyment when building models in wood as they just look right. πŸ‘Rigging a sailing barge helps retain the skills that are so quickly disappearing from our world. I hope you will share your builds at some time. happy days😊 Dave

    Huntsman 31 Plans
    Hi Kevin, Do you mean for the Precedent kit? If so, I don't think there was a full plan as such, not one that showed all templates etc, just a 2 view, plus a build guide. Will

    Boat Harbour
    Puffer
    This is a nice small version of this type of craft. I acquired some years ago from ebay and apart from some minor tidying up and fitting an ESC, battery and radio it is untouched. I will post a video of this craft on the water.
    "Searcher" Falmouth Catamaran Potter.
    Has anyone built one of these ? More photos to follow.
    Lady T Tug
    Built on the Mobile Marine Hull and using their templates and plans. Nicely detailed but quite skittish in any sort of swell. Looks nice as a display or on the water, but fiddly to set-up for sail.
    Sea Breeze
    This is a small commercial model acquired from a former club member. Nice sail if not to blustery and quick and easy to put on the water as it fits in the car fully rigged, if I have nothing else ready
    "Monarch" Marblehead Yacht
    Another model built on a fibreglass hull made by Brian Clewes. Several years ago our lake was weed free and a couple of feet deeper so it was safe to sail this deep keeled hull. Unfortunately the water level dropped and weed proliferated so sailing was not possible and I sold the boat on. Pity as it was an exciting model to sail especially in a good blow. One picture show my model at an early stage along side Brian's Yacht
    Pond Yacht
    This is another scratch built yacht based on a fibreglass hull made by a club member. Great fun to sail and the old codger has been puffing on his pipe for several years. Uses A hitek winch servo and block in plastic railing for both sails.
    Schooner
    This is a scratch built model using a template my club acquired several years ago. The template is upside down and the hull is planked from Mahogany 1/4" x 3/16 strips with a solid mahogany keel. A Hitek drum winch drives a sliding block in some plastic channel and this controls the two main sails. The last pic shows the general idea, and is from another club members model. A separate lever servo controls to two jibs. The gaff sails can be removed if the wind is bowing a hoolie on our lake. They are very popular and to date I believe our members have constructed about 9 models. This may be because the model easily rides over the weed that invades our waters during the summer months.
    Searcher - 1930s Customs Cutter
    Another hull bought many years ago from the Boat Convention at the Boat Museum in E Port. Came with a plan. Built from wood, mainly mahogany type and most bits scratch built. Powered by a brushed 555. Very stable and can handle some of the roughest weather on our club lake. Flying HM Customs flag and boarding party ready to confront any smugglers. I believe Skelmersdale Models still stock thye hull and plan.
