    I love this 8 meter yacht,sail number K91 it has a great keel shape allowing weed to be ignored most of the time. Built by the southwater dabblers a while back and has been through a few owners before I brought her. Moves in the lightest of winds and copes with large gusts too.
    Am improvement on the basic model is the larger rudder allowing superb control (unless I get distracted!) Deck is lined in wood with a cabin top allowing access to the inner workings. I am running it on a acoms 27Mhz set as it has never let me down I can see little point in changing it to 2.4 Ghz
    The only thing I have done is added some portholes and a wheel to make it more realistic.
    As can be seen in last photo not all weed can be ignored!!! (Motor: Mother nature) (ESC: Acoms) (10/10)

    Maybe an auxiliary motor would be useful for backing out of such muck?

    I'd try and find somewhere else to sail!
    Lovely boat, give her a chance to show you what she can do in clear water.

    That was a while back. The canal has put in some electronic weed busters that have really helped this year.
