Botties?
« on: June 30, 2009, 07:50:30 PM »

This is all foreign stuff to me, but what exactly is a bottle yacht? And how do you build one? Are they an easy thing to knock up, or does it get technical?

Hi U33 and welcome to the world of FUN ~ Footys and Bottle Boats
I immediately see that we have something in common ~ my old nickname was Sandscratcher and served on Alliance, Onslaught, Sovereign and Superb ~ I left in 1976
(Still got diesel flowing in my veins)

Ok Back to Bottle Boats
Bottle Footy Scale yachts are FUN and easy to build and create a great stir at the lake side.
I have now built 4 different ones ~ the emphasis is to try and use as much recycled materials as possible and you can be as ridiculous as you like
A good opo of mine has even built a Footy Bottle Sub! Crazy but it works and very well too I might add.

I'm sure you will have lots of questions but for now i will post some pictures so you get the idea

If you want any more info

Please let me know
