She looks great, are you using an external keel or internal ballast ? You have just pushed me nearer to the promised outing for the old girl  ::) ::)

Me too. I've had a vac-formed hull kicking about for over 20 years - must get it out and have a look!

Sail control is via a single sail winch to the main, foresail and Vangs. It has a drop keel with 8lbs of lead.

Yes she certainly looks good, pretty is not the right word to describe a model of a working vessel like her. I wished I had thought of a drop keel or anything besides that chunk slung underneath. Too late to modify it now.
