    Veronica
    In the process of making the London Sailing barge Veronica.
    (Yacht) Wee Nip
    As before, different to sail a single sail as compared to a Bermuda rig . Still, it's fun and easy to sail. Cheers. Ken, thanks for the tip to send a picture as well. I know know how to do it, thanks To Doug. (ESC: Scratch build) (8/10)
    (Yacht) Wee nip.
    Made from plans, single sail, totally different to sail than normal Bermuda sail rig, but sails well. (8/10)
    (Yacht) Dragon force, micro magic, one metre,
    Sails well. They all sail well, depending on the wind (Motor: Wind.) (8/10)

    I don’t know what thickness you have, but if suitable could be used as frames for your boats.
    l sometime use offcuts to make 90 degree squares or triangles of different sizes, used to make sure the boat frames are square during the glueing up stage.
    Always find a use for a bit of plywood.
    Cheers for now

    Hi Ed, if you make a dummy rail with the holes for the rail posts, you can use that to solder your rails on without damaging your boat

    Hi, if you are interested, in Nerys’s Dragon Force, why not give her a call on here, I think she lives in your area?
    Ammanford?
    Perhaps I’m a bit out, she is about 50 miles away, sorry.
    Perhaps you could meet up somewhere if interested.

    I thought that the time it was on, had no one enquire about it.
    If you want I can put it back on!
    I’ve mentioned it down the lake as well, still no interest!
    Yes we can advertise on our Webb page.

    No, they contacted me to see if it was still up for sale, or had it been sold , I told a porky, and said it had been sold elsewhere, so I requested them to take it off.

    Hi Doug , it was me that put the Dragon Force on our club Facebook page, to give our members a chance to buy a bargain, Nerys told me she was thinking of selling it, so I thought I was doing her a favour, since we had no response I’ve taken it off.
    Cheers
