    Apologies the machined strip wood purchased for this build is cedar and not as originally stated spruce.

    So much interest has really surprised me and almost re- kindled my interest in the project, I thought they were beautiful craft hence my interest but it still doesn`t alter the fact that it is not a practical project for me, I would have realised that had done more serious research.
    We all learn, hopefully!
    I am pleased that the project should find its way to a new and enthusiastic home and not get forgotten in my garage fingers crossed. ๐Ÿคž

    For my current yachts, which include an A Class, I ended up using this truck and a suitable little beastie being sold off cheap by a local garage.

    Lovely project, Iโ€™m a huge fan of the 6m, designed one in the 1980s for a college project when a student at Falmouth Marine School and spent a great day with Ian Howlett talking Sixes.

    If I didnโ€™t have a backlog of projects, including an old A class, Iโ€™d travel up from Plymouth. Though if you donโ€™t find a new home soon Iโ€™d be seriously tempted, just hope it finds a new home before my resolve slips.

    About 12 months ago after building a beautiful 1mtr Nimbus yacht I fancied building another type.
    After insufficient research I decided upon the Graham Bantock designed Romanza, a 6mtr popular 1.532 long yacht.
    I have the plans, sufficient cedar, machine cut at 1.2mtr x 9mm x 3mm to build the hull including 4 lengths of 1.8mtr x 9mm x 3mm that have been glued and joined.
    The 20 or so frames have been cut and finished and fixed to a solid building board ready for the start of the build.
    I have decided against building this model primarily as I have no way to transport it to water and it is rather large
    for my play room. The building board has been carefully stored along with the timber planking.
    Is there anybody, hopefully close to the East Midlands interested in talking to me about taking this on reasonable price to be discussed.
    Best regards and a Merry Christmas ChrisG
