    hi terry

    might be a bit cheeky but i would be interested in what looks to me like a victorian pleasure launch which i presume looking at the photo could be about 30inch plus?, would you consider selling it as a single item if so at what price

    I have sailed it less than 4 hoursto fast for me. open to reasonable offers collection advised from lincoln but could meet alf way if required

    I have for sale my model fishing boat which was scratch built from a model boat magazine plan, forgot who designed it though. it is built from balsa for the hull sides covered in a pair of the bosses tights before sealing and painting.The stern and deck are ply then painted to seal.
    all the deck and cabin fittings are scratch built from photos found on line.

    it is quite heavy about 10Lb of lead if I remember correctly, the length is 30" by 16" to keel bottom and beam 9", fitted with a 12v to 14V motor, 70 mm prop. Batteries and 320 amp fan cooled speed controller included, currently running off 12v 6 amp batteries.

    space needed for new project ยฃ150 or reasonable offers collection from Lincoln would be advisable due to size and weight. But could arrange delivery if required.

    hi all.

    I have purchased a yacht hull and deck as my next project from that well known auction site, but am struggling to find the maker or the name of the yacht?. it came complete with a fibreglass deck, measures 48" long 10" beam and 11" to keel bottom, I am sure some one out there knows what it is based on or who manufactured it.

    I have started the build and am going to loosely base it on the 1930 yacht enterprise, mainly the sail plan. have added a few photos if it helps thanks for any help. basilsdad
