    Built as a static display model for someone else, I couldn't resist seeing if I had a well ballasted and waterproof little boat that might float the right way up anyway. Delighted to find the guestimated ballast and first bright finished plank on frame hull I've made did indeed work.

    This would make an interesting build, though the kit is not a sailing model, it could be with a bit of ingenuity.

    Are you thinking of sailing it? Or keep it as a static display? It would require skillful modifications to sail it as an RC.

    The build was for a friend with happy memories of a cat boat holiday years ago, so her seafaring career started and stopped in the repurposed plexiglass display case lid in the yard, sadly. Cabin roof is fixed, but the companionway hatch opens, with the cabin decked inside. The skipper is a Tamiya 1:16 refugee wehrmacht machine gunner from the Eastern Front, with his coal scuttle helmet hidden under a tinfoil sou'wester. Frank is his adopted name.

    Great job. I like the skipper as well. Looks the part and must be in for a bit of a blow.

    Is the cabin roof removable?

    She looks an absolute dream, love authentic looking yachts and especially with gaff rigs, look forward to seeing more pictures and maybe later some with her on the water sailing.

    I like these traditional American boats, and these catboats are no exception. Hope you try sailing her, ballasted correctly I think she might do quite well. Will be interested to see.
