Racing Sloop (no name yet) - Posted: 29th Oct 2017
I recently got an old Dumas Gee Gee racing sloop kit (22-1/2" long; 24" high; 4-1/2" draft) and will try (try, I said) to emulate this beautiful 1948 32.3 footer Moris Rainbow Class Racing Sloop as a next year's project. My first try with a sailboat. Wish me luck.

Luck to you but I think you’ll do great

Thank you, Bruce! I normally build boats using Styrene sheets since I don't like to get into the epoxy business. I know others work a different procedure by using clear lacquer and are able to waterproof and give that crystal-like looking appearance. Any ideas you or any other shipmates may offer to this humble swabbie?
