Emma C Berry by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 49" Emma C Berry - Comments: Under construction. Scratch built from plans using plank on frame method. Sail control by continuous loop on winch all under deck.

DF95 by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 37"/2000g DF95 - Comments: DF95 class yacht. Absolute fun to sail with the advantage of convenient size to transport.

Annie by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 35" Annie - Comments: Sails only - no motor. Built from a Speedline Models kit. Performs surprisingly well but need a moderate breeze to make headway.

Getting Close by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 months ago
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. Photo of my efforts attached

Emma C Berry Schooner by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 6 months ago
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.

Location correction by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 9 months ago
The google maps insert for the club shows an incorrect location. I do not know how to amend this but the correct co-ordinates are -33.874296,150.713729. Physical address is 205 Adams Road Luddenham NSW Australia. The club now has 72 members, sails every Sunday from 8:30 am to 2:00pm featuring all scale models and all classes of yacht. There is a group of DF95 owners who sail every Wednesday from 9:am to 1:30pm

Annie by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
I don't recall exact time. It was over two years ago that I got the kit but I do recollect having to wait a little.

Annie by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 year ago
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.😎

Build under way by alan20 Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 3 years ago
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. Alan20
