Sea Fox - Posted: 9 days ago by Joe727
This Swede Johnson and his yawl and its captain, Popeye. Swede pasted away several years back, I wanted to post this in his memory. He scratch built all of his boats over the years and was well know for his leading edge designs like the US1 Meters and Marbleheads. He taught me to scratch build boats and sails. Yes, Popeye's arm moves with the acting tiller.

Carina - Posted: 22 days ago by Hellmut1956
This time I want to show the process after removing the now sanded hull. You get a first view of having me removing the frames and starting to fill lead into the wooden hull. In the last photo, you can appreciate the benefits of removing all frames from within the hull. The surface inside the hull is ready for further processing.

I am continuing to try to learn the way this forum is properly used. I want to publish here my photos of the construction of my sailboat Carina from scratch that I am publishing here. I will limit myself to photos that are useful to get a general view of the topics I am publishing

kyosho fair wind - Posted: 1 month ago by keithtindley
This yacht was purchased on a whim ? i spotted it for sail locally and thought it was about 30 inches high.
i had a shock on collection as its over 40 inches high and 3foot needed some attention to the electrics and transmitter and a lot of tlc. i think its big enough for my jack russell to curcumnavigate the world single footed !

Gypsy Sloop Jr. - Posted: 3 months ago by Popeyepapa
When I was in high school back in 1957 I built a kit of the Comet Gypsy Sloop Jr. In 2016 I found the drawings on-line for the Gypsy Jr. The boat was entered in woodworking class at our county fair where it received a blue ribbon. It has a working wheel that turns the rudder. Now I have under construction a 32 inch version that I would like to radio control. I'm not too sure how to set up or what type of servo to install.

Well done that man 👍
Unfortunately I'm not a yacheting man so can't help you directly with the setup.
BUT HEY! There's lots of yachties on this site! I've seen many discussions, threads and blogs on various yacht setups ....
Soooo ... pull your digits out guys, give the man a break and help him out with his yacht setup.
Cheers, Doug 😎

Go with swing arm servos for sail control, less trouble with the lines than winch. If room is a problem one can be used to control jibs & main. but separate controls are obviously best.
Wianno Senior in the water - Posted: 3 months ago by Ron
On the pond today. Sailing well, though took on water easily over the combing into the cockpit. So back home I added a clear covering which should take care of that problem. Also, added the Center board in the down position, which can be seen in the last picture in the clear water.

True Balou - Posted: 4 months ago by ChrisG
This pond yacht was bought for me by my daughter in a pretty poor condition from a car boot sale, I decided to tidy it up and give it back to her as a model for her home. 'True Balou' was her much loved 'Staffie'.
