60 Pieds open Sailing Boat by rayedgecombe Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
this is my first blog! I got the plans for this yacht (60 pieds translated is 60 feet)from a model magazine (Modele Reduit Bateau Aug 2014) in France (used google translate to suss it out) Details as follows ---planked on frames - LOA 1344mm - beam 376mm - draught 320mm - mast height 1730mm - displacement 5.7 kg. It has twin rudders set at an angle. Where I sail in South France the wind often drops to nothing so I am fitting a small motor to save walking miles.!
