Sea Fox by Joe727 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 5 days ago
This Swede Johnson and his yawl and its captain, Popeye. Swede pasted away several years back, I wanted to post this in his memory. He scratch built all of his boats over the years and was well know for his leading edge designs like the US1 Meters and Marbleheads. He taught me to scratch build boats and sails. Yes, Popeye's arm moves with the acting tiller.

Hello Doug, Thank you for the quick response! I will probably take the hull lines drawing and create the ribs, etc. Cheers Joe

Sailing Barge plans help by Joe727 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 8 days ago
I have been intrigued with British sailing work craft and built a 45" Gaff Rigged Falmouth Cutter. Now, I want to build a Thames Sailing Barge, are there any free plans out there (tight budget as I am retired), even just the hull plans would be great. Regards, Joe👍

Sail cloth by Joe727 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 days ago
I build both scale rc racing yachts and some scale gaff rigged cutters...all actually sail RC. I use several different materials, for the cutters, I have found the light spinnaker material from sail shops works great, much lighter than you would expect. I live on the US west coast near many sailing harbors, the sails shops just give me some of their scraps, free! Light weight reinforce, checked pattern, from the local fabrics stores work also. Like a very light windbreaker material. Hope this helps.
