Scudder by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Good thinking with the built in flotation.Nice to see an old plan being used.Vic Smeed had some good plans.Good to see it being upgraded to modern power system.

Hard chine / multi chine sailing yacht by tiggy_cat Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
The Vic Smeed Starlet would be a reasonable place to start. The plans are available from Sarik and a part kit is available here http://www.belairkits.com/detail.asp?id=873. If you fancied something slightly smaller, Vic's Star Baby sails well and a wood kit is available from Sarik along with the plans.

Hard chine / multi chine sailing yacht by SwordsmanDreamer Seaman   Posted: 4 months ago
Hello all I'm not sure if this would be the correct place to ask this question, but here goes: I would like to build a sailing yacht (model). I think that some kind of hard chine / double chine design would be best, as that would be simpler than carvel / diagonal / strip planked etc. Would anybody like to recommend a design for which the plans are available ? I have noticed something called the Star 45, then there are some of the Vic Smeed designs, and some on the Sarik website, in particular a yellow job with a cabin, cant remember the name of it at present. This would be for fun, i dont have any interest in racing, so partly i want to build something and partly want to sail something. Thanks. Maybe 30 inches up to a max of 48 ?

MAGGA DAN by chrys Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 4 months ago
Does anyone have a copy of the photos of the MAGGA DAN taken by Vic Smeed back in the 1950. some are in the 1957 copy of the model maker which I have but there were a few more.

For Sale - Pilot ll from plans by Vic Smeed by cormorant Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
For Sale. Plank on frame wooden hull scratch built from original plans by Vic Smeed. 86cm L by 28cm B. She is very well made, though I can't claim for construction as I bought her part built. I re-painted, added the drive train and electrics as well as detailing the the deck house and upper deck. Twin brushed fanned 540 electric motors with Mtronics Viper Marine 20amp ESCs. 2.4ghz Tx with four channel receiver. Navigation lights and searchlight. (Need final wiring) I think she looks good on the water. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6ELvkWcM-4&t=20s Collection only please. £210 ONO.
