    Hi yes they are all seaworthy the boat to the left is rigged out to take a genoa sail but l use a jib sail on her. the boat to the far right is rigged for jib sail only
    The boat in the center is rigged for a genoa sail (two servos) is going into drydock she is looking a little dowdy and just needs a little bit of love and care.
    The servo set up inside all of them is per Robbe,s plan the only thing l have added was an extra switch so l can charge the battery without removing it.

    inside view of servo controls for genua or blister.
    the white frame in which the servos are mounted is the new version of the old situation where every servo had his own foundation.
    now I can remove the complete set in one time for maintenance if necessary.

    just a video which shows the movement from the genua or blister from p-side to sb-side
    controlled by one servo, in my case a Hitec with a big winch wheel.

    Hi Mike no probs the hull is a bit of a beast to handle while trying to prepare it for painting the weight of the keel makes the hull flex quite a bit. l put the keel in a large vice to access most of the hull then hung it by the keel (upside down) to get to the rest this also made it easy to spray paint.
    The base of the keel was finished in the upright position.

    Hi Jim,
    Returned to daughter’s shed today and found mast and boom, both look intact with rigging, will inspect more closely once I’ve got the cobwebs off! I guess the starting point should be the hull and paint while it’s easier to handle. I should be ok for plans, parts lists and I’ve got the sails. Thx for help and info.
    Mike

    hi agent l noticed that another member has sent you drawings and construction book l too have all the original drawings 4 sheets the consruction manual and a 4 page list of parts called order no 1076 also have a copy of the extra items available list. All from the year 1992. If l can be of help give me a shout Robbe went skint in the early 2020,s there are very few spares left its a great deal make match or mend.
    the main mast and jib l needed to replace l just sat in front of the computer and went through all the model part supplies till l found someone who had them in stock. If you need sails then Frank at Nylet have never disappointed me very experienced chap.
    I noticed the crack on the keel to hull l had the same thing l rubbed i down made sure that their were no cracks in the hull filled all the dents with a flexible car body filler and then gave it a good few layers of under coat then resprayed it in the original yellow. ???
    Its a lovely boat to sail but a bit of a bruiser on the pond 13 odd kilo,s moving at fair rate not a lot gets in the way. good luck on your rebuild
