    Under construction. Scratch built from plans using plank on frame method. Sail control by continuous loop on winch all under deck. (5/10)

    Sails only - no motor. Built from a Speedline Models kit. Performs surprisingly well but need a moderate breeze to make headway. (5/10)

    Very interested in your experiences with this vessel - love to share more. I am currently scratch building one from the original kit plans but have used plank on frame construction and incorporated a detachable keel. Currently fitting the standing rigging.

    Scratch built from old kit plans but planked and fibreglassed rather than balsa sheeted as in the original. Modified to fit a removable keel. Winch and continuous loop sail control fitted under deck.

    Speed line kit completed a year ago. Sails well and is fun to handle. Has done many hours on the water and is still in good shape considering the conditions I have subjected it to.๐Ÿ˜Ž

    HI Chris
    interesting to come across your account (new member to the forum) as I am also building the Annie and am at a very similar stage of construction. I have encountered the same issue with the positioning of the cabin. I have planked the deck using styrene strip (as it will be painted not varnished). Like you I had some missing parts in the kit (but also some unnecessary duplicates).
    I will try to upload photos shortly and will keep watching your progress.
