Albatross by Grandpa Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Is this sailboat an Albatross? If a kit, where is it available? I have a Gypsy Sailboat, an old Comet kit still in the box. I hope to get it on the water next year.

As they say oop north in England. Ay up Baggie, tha's got some reet nice boating locations around you m'laddie. They look cracking places to sail yachts or motor boats to your hearts content. We have to fight for any piece of water round here with the anglers, golf courses, and private lakes. I'm getting very envious 😊 Best wishes, Dave W

Yes - sorry. Raveningham. The dog is at the feet of the figure nearest the wheelhouse... I will take another picture over the next few days of it and post it. 👍

Hi again! Did you mean Raveningham ??? Doug

Albatross by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Baggie, Re: "The boating lakes are at Aldeburgh in Suffolk... right by the beach ... good wind👍 there and a lovely town too. The one with the Tug and the yacht is Cromer small boating pond ... lovely park and cafe there. Overlooking the sea. Again good wind. " and "Mine is as purchased . Bought the rope, figures, barrels and fog from Revingham Models. 👍" Ta for the info. You don't need to use PM for such things as there is nothing personal in it and I'm sure many others would also be interested and find it useful. Cheers Doug 😎 By the way: Where is the dog hiding???

Neat 👍 Sailing site looks very comfortable 😊 Where is it? I also have a 'Southampton' (original 40Mhz verson) which I am slowly updating and upgrading; lights, smoke and whathaveyou. Been looking for suitable size crew as well, where did you find yours? Cheers Doug 😎

Just adjust the sails and the rudder then push out and watch it go....photos from Aldeburgh and Cromer boating lakes. 👍

3 Footer on a very rare outing by Westquay Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
Having once been the Editor of the Classic Motor Boat Association, yes, I have been at 30 knots. In my own Albatross. And faster than that in a Delta. It is like sliding down the stairs with your knees under your chin and your backside hitting every step. I've done that too. You keep talking about MTBs. I'm talking purely about the Crash Tenders. 30 mph is not that quick! MTBs were quicker. They were longer and much more highly powered. Probably why the Crash Tenders were only 2 in number and never saw real service, but they are so pretty! Martin

That only really applies where the vessel is intended for restricted waters or is over a certain beam. My Albatross speedboat was right hand drive. You don't tend to worry about navigation when you have a couple of skiers on the back! And the most restricted of all navigators stand in the middle of their narrow boat. Martin

Trawler plans by hammer Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 years ago
If It Is a sailing trawler you are looking for, Underhill plans have 2 the Valerian & Three brothers. Here Is a photo of my trawler Albatross, from my own drawings. Not plans as such.

Thanks Roy.

albatross by RoyLorentz Petty Officer   Posted: 4 years ago
Very good looking model. I agree with the size and how good she looks on the water. Wind, Water and Wood has always been my favourite moto. Frank Wadsworth 👍 😉
