    Hello, Thank you for the comment's, as said it is a very lively little boat and a lot of fun, would certainly give some of the Club 500's a run for their money.. Very quick and easy build. Happy Sailing, Thank you again.

    Hi,

    I have built three Bobby's in my time, two from the free plan from about 1972 and the last from a laser cut kit from Holland. Haven't managed to get the last one on the water yet but will so- eventually! They do go well.

    Three Bobby's now thats something, as "WE" say they are little "Go'ers".. Sch an easy build, as most Balsa constructions are, and not to involved with specialist glues/adhesives, the old fashioned Balsa Cement and Cellulose Dope plus some tissue paper, and very easy to make-good any mistakes, that is if any are created ( tongue in cheek ).. What started me off/rekindled my interest was an article i was asked to comment on in 1996 i think , concerning the PT 109 by Glyn Guest ( apologies for spelling ) G G. Balsa Construction as was a series GG did on MTB style, I did the PT 109, and the Miami at 1/32 and an enlarged 1/24th scale, converted the drawing of a Gay Class MTB and the Vosper 70 foot'er, plus the Hellcat.. All good boats and easy builds..
    Thanks for the chat Happy sailing..
    Stay Safe.. !
