Dean's Marine - Victoria & Albert
« on: March 19, 2017, 02:59:32 PM »


Hello,

I was toying with the idea of having a go at this kit  - anyone done this and does anyone have any comments?

I'm not looking for a shelf queen , I'm looking for a hard working boat that can take a bit of use and be very practical. Also must go together well and be easy to make

Comments much appreciated also any other similar suggestions

Thanks

Mark

  814 mm long ,weight sailing 5Kg with the Puffin plant suggested she must be a right goer. Not going to be light on grunt !

Ron Dean always use to bring this boat to the Cheddar Model Club events in the 90's, was equipped with a Cheddar Puffin plant, if remember correctly he use to say fibreglass hull and fibreglass deck with a bit of planking over the deck.
Called it the company hack !!!!!

Thanks Guy's,

That's what I want, two-three weeks to build and sail for many years after.

I have nice to look at models, just want something to play with and enjoy and not take seriously.

What is the kit quality like these days, do they go together well?

Thanks again
