    I built this one for my grandaughter. She is from a MB free plan about 12 inches long that used to have a swing rig. I don't like swing rigs so set up a very simple sail set from ripstop nylon material.

    The sails are just hot cut so no sewing needed.
    The vane steering works very well and on a small pond keeps you very fit!
    Again no radio but a lot of fun for a young person.

    Susie says "Not seen this one before"! You are not old enough puss.

    From your photo I believe it is a design called 'Ripple' and was a free plan and construction article in Model Boats November 1991 issue. December 1991 had an article on how to sail the design.

    It was a free plan with MB magazine issued some while before I used it. May have been pre-footy? I think the footys are more substancial though.

    She has an aircraft carrier stem keeps the boat dry, that might identify it with somebody. I made her at least 15 years ago.

    Was she originally designed as a Footy?
    I like the vane control
    Looks good to have some fun with.

    As you can see she has a long skinny keel. This is part of a re-purposed 3 foot boxwood ruler. Very stiff.
