Scratch built yacht. by ChrisG Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 17 hours ago
Hello Joe Many thanks for the reply and the offer of help. I have built several model boats of different styles and also a 'Bella' yacht kit from Aeronaut. I prefer building plank on frame and find it quite therapeutic especially as I love wood. My next step is to build a beautiful sailing boat hull and the 1mtr style would suit I think. I am not planning to race the boat and might even not rig it but just have the pleasure of the build. If you can help I would be obliged best regards Chris G

Hi Joe, All you have to do is go to. Click on "Model Boat Clubs"! on the left of the website. Then choose the club you are a member of. Then click on "Sail Here"! I believe you then have a chance to print out a paper. Output of sailing at that club! That's It your done! Regards, Ed

I am new and can't figure out how to add a sailing location. Saw a note for becoming a Sailor, but can't figure that out either. Please help....Joe

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.

Lemmerhengst, Thank you for the reply, I saw that site and couldn't reach it, thank you for pointing out that they are rebuilding. I'll keep an eye out, looks good. Joe

Sailing Barge plans help by Lemmerhengst Seaman   Posted: 7 days ago
Hello Joe, Try AMBO (google) They are the association of model barge owners and I believe they are based around Maldon, Essex. A great site that is currently under rebuild (like many 12'' to the foot barges!) Good luck with your research. Cheers Lemmerhengst

Hello Doug, Thank you for the quick response! I will probably take the hull lines drawing and create the ribs, etc. Cheers Joe

Sailing Barge plans help by Joe727 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 days ago
I have been intrigued with British sailing work craft and built a 45" Gaff Rigged Falmouth Cutter. Now, I want to build a Thames Sailing Barge, are there any free plans out there (tight budget as I am retired), even just the hull plans would be great. Regards, Joe👍
