    I recently acquired a smaragd, that had largely been built, just some finishing off to do.

    Just for information.
    While I was browsing through the Yacht section of pictures, I came across another Smaragd yacht.
    The pictures were posted 2/3 yrs ago.
    I wonder if they are still active members, and have seen any of our chats and pages.
    It would be good to hear from them.
    Still looking through the many archived pictures.
    Best Regards
    Ray.

    Our posts crossed Ray.............

    Thanks for all that and I understand the transport issues.

    Gives me a good reason for doing away with the 'weak bits'.

    I am trying just to get the Tender under power so it can be used during the next two months, then back to the yacht may be.

    However someone has been kindly tidying my stuff up and now I cannot find even the transmitter!

    Can print out the stuff you provided though.................

    All the best.

    I bought the model boat kit new from Bournemouth Models in 1998. They were the main suppliers of Robbe models and parts in the U.K. at that time. it came in several boxes and a lot of room in the garden shed.
    It took some time to assemble all the separate pieces into their respective components. Then final assembly as per the manual and diagrams.
    Yes the hand rails were there at the beginning, and remained there for the first couple of years.
    With the standard jib and main sails, there was very little interference with the sheeting. The problems were with the transportation, as they are exposed on the edges.
    The stansions would catch on clothing while lifting and walking with the model.

    As I hope you can see, I have had a break through with the files.

    Not done them all yet, but having success now.

    Many thanks for all the trouble you went to. Lets hope others will also benefit.

    Did you decide to do away with deck rails or were they not there when you acquired the boat?

    All the best.

    With reference to the deck hand rails:-
    1. With the model being so heavy and large,
    I found that transportation to the sailing venue, and the possibility of a reasonable walk from the parking area to the launch/waterside, that the handrails were the first items to suffer.
    2. With the Mainsheet extending out over the railings, sometimes it would get snagged on one of the stansions.
    3. The Genoa sheeting is really long and loose on the Lee side. it too could get snagged at times.
    I am looking at getting new stansions and looking at installing them again, but with the Genoa fully rigged and sheeting operational, to see how it can be installed securely and reduced risk of snagging.๐Ÿ˜ฑ

    Because of the size of the sheets, I went to "Office World" a local stationers, that have a copy and print section. They scanned the documents for me, and put them on a stick.
    I would suggest taking the files to them, and they can print them for you. Take a note of the sheets to be printed on the back of other, on A3. So you can assemble them in an A4 booklet. The page numbers on the left hand page is the sequence to use, as that is the first section of the book, assembly method. The later section is the parts lists etc.๐Ÿค”

    As you can see it has all the transfers....................

    No deck rails on yours. Perhaps that is the way out of one problem.

    The windows really work for me.

    Still trying to open the plans.

    All the best.
