Re: A bit on the wild side

Hi Micheal
I brought the model Shearwater plans. Whether I build one or not depends on my translation skills. I haven’t spoken German for 43 years.

Radio controlled Yachts at Nationals

Hi
If you have a RV yacht bring it along to the Nationals several of us sail them. We mainly have fun with them in the evenings. I’m bringing an IOM, Dragonforce 65 and a Dragonflight 95. However bring what ever you have and join the fun. I also encourage other non owners to have a go.

Re: Centreboard case not true

If this was Duncan Nicholson’s old boat Super Zonker the case was a diamond shaped as was that of the original Revolution. The boards for them were made specially ( custom), to gybe in the case.

Re: The Best Of…The Wingnut Award

Hands up I had it one year for forgetting to put the bungs.It could have been in the Shark or it may have been the Shearwater. I’ve forgotten the year.
