Title: Graupner RAU IX
Post by: Cyberdan on June 19, 2013, 08:49:14 pm
Hello,
 
Just got a built Graupner RAU XI (Whale Catcher), and no I don't intend to chase plastic whales with it  {-) . This model needs restoration but due to the lack of information I'm not sure what's missing and what's needed to relaunch.
 
If anyone can assist by means of the original instructions and plans that would be great.
 
Thanks,
Hany

Hi Hany,  Nice to hear you have a Rau Whaler.  I still have my original from years ago and still sails and draws the crowds and comments etc. I still have the original plans but not the instructions as I am not known for following such things. The plans are 4 large sheets with great detail of boat.  If you think its worth it ,I could copy and post to you after I get a quote. Let me know.
Cheers,
Norrie
