    This is my recently acquired yacht, the previous owner knows nothing about it.Any help in identifying it would be welcome it measures 1225mm X245mm.Mast height 1920mm.Total height 2340mm.The electrics have not been tested yet as old batteries were still in place and have leaked all over the place .Sail control appears to be via a winch ,micro switches,and diodes.(A standard sailwinch may be a better option as electrics aren't my strengh).The sail has a M on it but the hull appears not to be a marbelhead?
    Any help much appreciated Chris.

    I am the proud owner of a River Lady class yacht (Sail No21),purchased as a semi kit from MYD in July 2004.I only know of two others,but there must be more !! .In 2007 I read an article by a chap called Chris Chambers in Marine Modelling International magazine.In it he told of a person in South Africa buying the prototype and myself owning my model called Sophie ,I can only assume he got this information from MYD.The last time saw anything in print about MUD was in November 2011.This was on model Boat mayhem forum .
