"....Appears to be very original and again testimony to how versatile Les Rowells model designs can be.."
I never thought it was very original - it's a copy from one designer made in the modelling style of another - that of Ernie Webster, who was the lad who designed the EeZeBilts for Eddie Keil. And it's a small Sea Queen!!!
A little like modern music - hip-hop sampling? If anything, it shows up the versatility of the Eezebilt construction technique. I was surprised to find that it coped quite well with 26". As J Barry points out, you need to keep a straight keel, and 26" of thin balsa can make that a bit difficult. Perhaps ply would be better?
Mind you, the OSA in the same series is 32", and keeping the keel straight on that is even trickier. And OSAs are a bit unusual, there aren't many kits around for them.
Perhaps you will find the next EeZeBilt even more original (if such a thing is possible!)?
