Blimey, well reminded, my dad built me that in 1969 although without the vane steering and I still have the boat. So I think I will add the vane gear for next years mayhem, I have have also decided what I am going to build (scaled up a little) it will be guess the boat during the build log  :-)) :-))

Replicas of classic vintage builds sounds interesting, but what really lights my boilers is imagining an even larger battle squadron of six foot plus battleships.  There should be two Agincourt's on the water next year to add to that awesome line ahead column.  Plus, I know that Nick is building a famous battlecruiser from an extended Dreadnaught hull.  We may even get to see more ships with simulated broadsides ?

That long line of mega ships was my highlight of Wicksteed, something you will not see at your local pond.

B-Liner was a Vic Smeed design Phil I built one and funny enough it's still in my parents loft l think with a more powerful motor than a Monoperm I think it will be a lot more of a successful boat.
