This site for the Guldford club has some links and also Roger Stollery's e-mail address (He's the designer) Hope this helps.

The Stollery ones look a bit too professional to me - I'm sure I remember seeing an article somewhere about a competition for boats made from rubbish which involved bottles - but can't remember if it was by Gavin Atkin or Glynn Guest (or neither - apologies to the author whoever it was).

I found it, Ken - it was by Gavin Atkin. It is just a wee bit simpler than the Stollery version.

Just thought you would like to see the bottle yacht built by our nonagenarian Senior Member and sailed for the first time at Edinburgh Model Boat Club today. It went very well and and showed a fair turn of speed. It was also able to turn on a sixpence - or the modern equivalent. This is the first bottle boat we have seen (if you discount my bow-thruster propelled Tesco milk bottle) and I'm sure it will start a trend. The yacht was built from spare bits lying around the builder's workshop.

HI  ALL !

ppsailor salute from mexico. O0

Please, they visit my group:

http//mx.groups.yahoo.com/group/ppnautica

In this group, one is to wake up the creativity to the children, being used material who we found in our homes and to recycle the sweepings, to construct navigable models.
thanks.
