Gypsy Sloop Jr. - Posted: 1 month 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.

Wianno Senior in the water - Posted: 1 month 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: 2 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'.

SLOTH - Posted: 3 months ago by Northumbrian

It's amazing that every club I've seen so far has problem with weeds.we use to have access to a reflecting pool with no weeds at a civic centre,But they changed the rules.Any water deeper than 2inches required a life guard be posted.When people in the condos saw us down at the water they would bring their children down to watch the boats in the water.At the end of the night they would thank us for entertaining their children.All our members enjoyed doing this.City politics is a b___h.

Norfolk Wherry - Posted: 3 months ago by CB90
Some pictures of my Dad's Norfolk Wherry seen here at Eton Park, Norwich. It will be featured in September 2018 "Model Boats" magazine along with his mates Wherry.
It is about 4ft long note my 3ft 72nd scale Corvette looks small next to it.

Stunning model, I'm looking forward to getting around to building mine.
Response by thelegos on the 5th Sep 2018
Very nice indeed, it looks like 'Albion",which I had the pleasure of looking around at Oulton Broad; it's an excellent model. I also bought a set of plans from the preservation society so it seems we'll have the makings of a fleet soon!
