Fairly Hunsman renovation part 1 by ChrisF Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 14 days ago
The hull of the 31 is much sleeker than that of the 28. By changing the superstructure you will have a Fairey Huntsman 31 Sport. Not many of these were sold as most 31's had the aft cabin.

Hi It's probably a Precedent hull. Check out the model boats mag forum site. They have a guru on the Huntsman !! Dave Milbourne. Canabus

Fairly Hunsman renovation part 1 by CB90 Admiral   Posted: 15 days ago
I was lucky to be able to get myself a fibre glass hulled Fairly Huntsman 31 this is a model of the 31 ft Huntsman which converts to a scale of 1:11 which is a bit of a strange scale, the superstructure is in a poor state, so I am thinking it could now be changed to a 'Fairly Huntsman 28' which I think looks better. Huntsman 28 The model 34 in long is close to 1:10scale at 34.6in Some History Four Huntsman 28's took part and competed in the 1969 Daily Telegraph / B.P. Round Britain powerboat race. A Huntsman 28 'Fordspeed No 909' entered and completed the London - Monte Carlo race in 1972. Also the same boat set a new class speed record of 51.271 mph on Lake Windemere, in October 1973. The hull is a deep V with single chine and spray rails. The construction was of laminated mahogany, the hulls were cooked in an oven to cure the glue. The twin engines were placed mid ships. Dimensions LOA: 28' 10" (8.8m) LWL: ~24' 10" (~7.6m) Beam: 8' 9" (2.66m) Draught: 2' 6" (0.76m) Displacement: 8160lbs (3710kg)

It's a sad day!. by Novagsi0 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
True Bloke. (thanks!!) The huntsman is my passion the boat above is a larger scale Sordsman 15cc. I sailed this last night as a ode to my father on what would have been his birthday we started this 30 years ago only finished in the last few months ready for the 14-May. wish it could have been IC but a large 850MFA gets it plaining (just), for an hour on lipo's instead. My father use to run FIA Rossi engines on gear boxes and do NAVIGA speed I think it was called. But there is a draw of ED Hunters, ED racers, diesel engines, Basil Miles Engines etc.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart you guys, I consider myself well and truly bolloked!!, love you're engines. I feel better now with your support, your correct, why should we just accept it, I'm keeping 95% of my IC boats and engines now, in fact I've just ordered a 6volt battery to fire up the 15cc coil ignition gannet in the huntsman and intend giving it an outing. This is just my opinion I do not wish to offend, however I believe as we with IC boats in clubs became the minority then most members who just like pootling around looked upon the fast loud smelly ICs as a nuisance so let's ban them. Thanks again guys "power to the people"✌️.

Hi Boatshed, that's crazy, £80 fine for running your boat, i'd like to have met that ranger (jobsworth) you could rob your local sweet shop and got fine less. I to have several SCs 40,45,60 and a 90 ABC wonderful bargain little engines, the 60 must have had, no exaggeration, at least 20 gallons of fuel run through it and it's still as good as new, the 90,O.M.G., has that much compression it needs 24volts to start it. My pride and joy is my veron huntsman which I built in 1966 with a 15cc gannet four stroke petrol engine.

31" Precedent Huntsman by DennisRobotham Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
Always good to see a Precedent Huntsman, excellent boats and even better skipper. Enjoy sailing mine at the lake every Sunday or Wednesday... never fails to please. Happy boating.. from Dennis the Menace

Huntsman "John" by Novagsi0 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
More running in trials, burning fuses out, and complete radio outage and bumping the bank. However some progress made on levelling it out, full speed cannot be reached whilst trying to video by my self. 😎 The Captain "Dennis The Menace" is not a good omen, twice he's got in trouble, yesterday the cabin was flooded up to his waist.
