Christian Radich by pjarrett Petty Officer   Posted: 4 months ago
[Score: 5/10] 22"/600g Christian Radich - Comments: My model of the Christian Radich a Norwegian full-rigged ship. I don’t recall the manufacturer’s details of this model kit but I believe it was of Spanish origin. Construction of the model is a double plank hull and deck with most of the small fittings being supplied in the kit of parts, the build time was 680 hours. The vessel was built in Sandefjord, Norway and was delivered on 17 June 1937. The owner was The Christian Radich Sail Training Foundation established by a grant from an officer of that name. The vessel is a full-rigged three masted steel hull, 62.5 m long, with an overall length of 73 m including the bowsprit and a maximum width of 9.7 m. She has a draught of about 4.7 meters and a displacement at full load of 1050 tons. Under engine power she reaches a top speed of 10 knots, while she can make up to 14 knots under sail. In 1939, the ship sailed across the Atlantic to visit the World Trade Fair in New York. The ship and the voyage created huge press coverage and made Christian Radich famous. When the ship came back home in September 1939, she was taken over by the Norwegian Navy. After the German invasion, the Nazi’s used the ship as an accommodation ship. At the end of the war, Christian Radich was towed to Flensburg in Germany where it was later bombed and sunk. At the end of the war, Christian Radich was hoisted up and towed to Kiel with a minesweeper as a protection ship. She was later towed to Norway and fully restored in 1947. There is a rich source of information about this beautiful ship on the internet if anyone is interested to learn more about her.

Would I be correct in saying local councils couldn't ban boat engines on canals, rivers and sea shores. Just a thought!

Recovery Boat by pjarrett Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 30"/2400g Recovery Boat Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 15mins Twin Propellors (2 Blade S Type 30mm) Direct Drive to a 500 type (Twin engines) (2 Blade S Type) Powered by Lead Acid (12v) 7Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Credit for the design of this craft must go to Mote Park Club member 18 (Dave). I have not had the pleasure of meeting Dave yet but hope to in the near future. I looked at his Youtube entry and decided to build something very similar. Being a lone sailor most of the time, I thought it sensible to have some form of recovery craft. The craft was built in June 2017 and so far I have used it twice to recover other sailors craft! Worthwhile project and gives peace of mind when out on the lakes. Many thanks Dave! I added the camera so I could take some photos of my SeaSpray from a different perspective, I will upload photos as they become available.

SeaSpray by pjarrett Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
[Score: 8/10] 38"/5000g SeaSpray Capable of 12mph and a runtime of 20mins Single Propellor (2 Blade S Type 35mm) Direct Drive to a MFA 850 (2 Blade S Type) Powered by LiPoly (11.1v) 6Amp/h Batteries - Comments: Purchased as kit around 1972, fibre glass hull with ply deck and superstructure. Had many changes and refits over the years and was originally fitted with and OS Marine glow engine which gave good performance and was quiet! Changed to the MFA electric motor with ESC. Installed two LiPo batteries which makes the hull well balanced and allows the deep V hull design to plane as designed. Have designed and made two electro-magnetic lifting sticks which help me raise and lower the boat into the water. Age related launching aid!
