    Thank you for that. It is appreciated. Still raining in some areas, hopefully Sydney and south will get some soon. Much needed.

    The small amount we had also gave enough water to teach grandkids how to sail the wee nip yesterday without running aground. It was good.

    Enjoy your Christmas as well.

    Merry Christmas to you in Australia, my wish is that you have rain, and lot's of it, so sad to see what the wildfires are doing to your country and wildlife, tomorrow at morning service, I will pray for rain for you.✝

    Merry Christmas all from Down Under. Receiving our Christmas present at the moment. Rain. Hope more get it to quench those fires.

    I have almost completed my first Footy. It will be interesting to see how it goes. Generating interest with the others with at least one going to build another.

    Life is interesting.

    They are a delight to sail in all conditions . The Nip is my first rc sailboat and I was hooked from day one. Very competitive in their own right and in certain conditions faster than other classes of rc sailboats.

    At our local club it is not uncommon for two sailors to stay (yesterday in 40deg heat) after others have gone, just for the heck of it.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts about it.

    Thanks Phil, it’s reassuring to know it will sail itself. Does that mean I can’t go wrong? I doubt it......

    When are you next planning to be at the Pavilion Gardens? It would be great to get the chance to see one of your Wee Nips. I’m not far away.

    Martin,

    I guess I must have been good 🀣. Not sure my wife would agree πŸ™„.

    I’m going to trace round all the parts before I start assembly, so that was a good suggestion. Whilst I have the plans in the kit I got, it will be much easier to trace from the parts than from the plan.

    Hi Graham, have fun with the Wee Nip and just shout if you have any questions. As for rigging and sailing her - she almost does it herself !.

    Hi Graham,
    You lucky boy.

    I asked for Santa to come early and my wife said "you will be lucky of he comes to you at all"

    I guess i have been a naughty boy this year LOL!

    It would be a good idea if you made templates and made a note of the measurements of all the parts then you could make more if you wanted to.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Santa came early today! β›„πŸŽ

    Having almost completed the refurb on my Crash Tender, and inspired by this thread I asked Santa if he could deliver early this year.

    This is only my second boat, and my first ever sail boat. I know little about sail boats, how to rig them, or how to sail them so I'm looking for plenty of advice from those with much more experience than I have.
