    This is the most straight forward of the Bearospace designs. It sails very well and was a pleasure to build. There's lots of help to be found on the designer's Youtube channel. The bulk of the materials came from B&Q, they sell a 3.2mm thick plywood, which when measured is more like 3mm. The construction was completed using West Epoxy with some filler, to create fillets on the inside.

    Hi Andy, beautiful model.
    You should also put the YouTube link here to see it.
    I saw your channel, admired your models and therefore I know it but many model makers don't.

    Are you plagued with sailing your Emma and getting it hung-up in weeds?
    Let me know as I am in communication with Gary Webb about trying to create an alternative design of the Fin Keel which should eliminate getting hung-up.

    Thank you for the photos, you certainly have done a great job. My Emma was built to Gary's specs apart from the actual sails which i made from Mylar. Not entirely happy with the look of them and will be changing them in the new year.

    One thing I will be changing is the loop arrangement around the traveller. What you have done is so simple yet will give more adjustment.

    Will be putting mine in the water for the second time this weekend so hopefully I will get some of the changes done by then.

    There were a few small "tweaks" I made during construction & after finishing the boat.

    How the rudder was constructed and changing the jib "set up" to a balanced boom, which helped keep the jib in shape, were two of the more obvious.

    Hi Ron,
    Do you have the link to the YouTube videos?
    If they are public, that is.

    Gary Webb just emailed me yesterday to show me how his Sparkle is set up below decks. Sparkle is the name of his vessel which he has lived on for more than 30 years. I do not have permission to post the photos but it is most interesting that when we see him on his YouTube videos, it is at his actual table opposite of the galley inside his sailboat which is moored along the Baja peninsula. A very interesting man and so helpful too.

    I like your Emma

    Good luck. Look forward to seeing her on the water. Perhaps one day all the Emmaโ€™s will get together for a regatta.
