Just about there- all I need are the sails. I am going to try using the nylon from the inner lining of a tent. The radio gear is in and working; the jib is not controlled though.
The main and fore sheets are black line in the photo of the radio gear, since changed for nylon monofilament- you can just see this on the other photos.

Finished at last! I used an old bed sheet for the sails; sewing the bolt-ropes on took ages. Now to see how she sails- there do not seem to be any shallow freshwater ponds too near; I'll have to investigate.

Nice work Phil, anxious to see sailing photos when that happens.  Reminds me of the model of the Emma C. Berry I built several years ago and sailed RC.. did quite well.

Regards,

Dennis
