    J Class Style
    J Class Style Pond Yacht - Rescued from the skip and given a new lease of life to sail again as "Rudder only" radio controlled.
    Swamp Dawg Camera Boat
    Quick and simple solution to save those action moments - Pair phone or tablet with GoPro camera app, or simply record with remote via wifi.
    RC Laser
    RC Laser - not a home brew of course, but for many years an object of desire due to simplicity of design, assembly, aesthetics and convenience. Love the Laser, but the Wee Nip still my "go to" boat.
    Mickey Finn
    Purchased original Rojair Mickey Finn from Ashton Models 35 years ago - hull suffered damaged so made a F/G mould before repairing and sailing. Made spare hull from mould and there she sat for 35+ years. Original Mickey was sold many years ago but as retirement approached the burning desire to fulfill old challenges re-emerged. So , after putting out calls for help, diagrams, photos or information on the model boat forums, thanks to "John Dowd" and a couple of other guys, I finally got round to resurrecting this fantastic 36" yacht.
    "Genie"
    "Genie" was classic Marblehead design from Vic Smead , she had a hard chine hull construction. Living in New Zealand in the early 70`s I ended up building 4 of these in total - only glad I took some picies. Long gone now, but not forgotten !
    Wee Nip
    My first (and following) Wee Nips

    Great information guys ,๐Ÿ‘ - the Genie was actually the 50" Marblehead - along with the 36" Gosling that Vics daughter Michele was holding in the book by C.R.Jefferies.

    I also remember the Starlet , the Star Baby and I think there was the Duckling. ! - fantastic !!โ›ต

    Ten Years After ! - Up to last year Rick Lee (Drummer) was still touring and doing peripatetic teaching periodically at a local school. Great guy - great band with some fascinating stories about Woodstock and CSN&Y.

    Hi Colin, no problem re abbreviated text.

    Just to clariy, for those who are not aware, these abbreviations are amateur radio terms which are used when decoding CW.
    CW being an abbreviation itself for "continuous wave" as used in morse code.

    Morse code was introduced around 1830s and by the 1930s (long before mobile phones / texting etc.) , CW was the preferred form of communication for aviators and seamen, and it was vital during the Second World War.
