    Itโ€™s interesting to see the magazine actually have some content about sailing boats and donโ€™t normally buy it for this reason. However I tried to buy a copy yesterday but couldnโ€™t find one for sale, obviously missed my chance.

    Storage is becoming an issue! At least the Eventide wonโ€™t be taking up too much space.

    Several of my sailboats are the same length as Eventide; the length and size make easy transport, plus storage on a bookshelf in the shop.

    Hi Ron

    I was following that thread before the plans came out so didnโ€™t have to make much of a decision to start the build. I really like the over length frames to bond onto the building board.

    Just need to finish a few other projects first, but as the Eventide will have its own building board Iโ€™ll probably make a start while waiting for glue/paint/varnish dry on the other boats.

    You might be interested in reading this chat about someone who drew up and built this model.

    Just cut the keel out, so I know itโ€™ll be just over 600mm once built.

    Just wondering if anyone else is contemplating or building the Eventide in the January edition of Model Boats Magazine

    As a fan of Maurice Griffiths boats I decided that this is going to be my first model built from plans, having previously built from kit and resurrected a few older boats.

    Iโ€™m currently at the stage of planning, have made the templates and am in the process of cutting the keel from some 1/4โ€ mahogany ply left over from redecking my vintage sailing canoe. Just drawing up the materials list to order next week.
