Robbe Atlantis Plans
« on: November 01, 2012, 03:30:44 PM »

In 1987 (yes 25 years ago!) I bought the Robbe Atlantis kit, keel and some accessory packs.  I then started travelling and moving countries with my job.  I am now retired and found the box with the Robbe Atlantis kit.  Unfortunately at some stage of my travels, the plans had caught the attention of a small, hungry animal.  The result is that the plans now have large bits gnawed out of the centre.  I contacted Robbe and a very nice lady called Iris was able to supply me with replacement plans 1&4 and 3&6 and the Instruction manual.  She was however unable to help me with plans 2&5. 
Is there anyone who could help me with locating Robbe Atlantis No. 1130 plans 2&5 ? 
Many thanks

John might get more response in Yachts and Sail if one of the Mods could be so kind

Ned - many thanks for your reply but you must forgive my ignorance having been away from model boats for 25 years now.  What is Yachts and Sail?  I've googled it but find nothing relevant.

John, Yachts and Sail is a section on this forum which is more likely to get you a response.
If you look down the list of main subjectsts you will find it.
I was just asking a Moderator to shift your post there as you may get a better response.

FYI, there is a short thread Robbe Atlantis thread on Mayhem from two years ago, which includes links to a couple of build threads. It might be worth having a look and saving the pictures on to a disc or memory stick - See;

Many thanks to you Ken, Andy and Ned - I'm going to enjoy this forum with so many helpful people around.  Let's hope I am able to contribute after I've had my feet under the modelling table for a few weeks!

Many thanks for the help received from this forum - especially to Shipmate PUCK02 . Now have a complete set of Atlantis plans so you can consider the item closed.  Can only hope the mouse that ate the last lot has since moved on.

hey guys.
I have just aquired a built, but slightly damaged, Robbe Atlantis and am looking for the plans. So if someone can help me out I'll be delighted.


Cheers

Hi Andy
Try spcresswell1961 - he offered me a set of plans but I had already managed to put a set together.

Hi there,

I just got an almost untouched Atlantis kit (the deck is done, but ugly, I will have to redo that), but unfortunately with incomplete documentation. The plan pages 2/5 and 3/6 I have, the instructions and plan page 1/4 are missing.
Krick took over the boat section when Robbe went bankrupt last year, but up to now I didn't get any answer from them if they can/will supply spares.
 
So it would be really great if someone who has finished his Atlantis could provide me with the missing docs.

Hi Tom,

thank you for the offer, having the complete documentation would be very helpful!
A lot of the things I could probably figure out, but of the rigging I have absolutely no idea ...
Up to now I was mostly into RC planes, my only boat is the Graupner Butterfly.
And compared to that the Atlantis is quite challenging.

The Atlantis is a beautiful model but it is too big & heavy, for me,does anyone know of a smaller version
I can build from plans or using a grp hull.
If anyone has any plans for a similar model they would like to share or sell or for a donation
To the rnli at the BLackpool show I would be most grateful.

I could resize Atlantis plans to build a smaller version or if scaled down would she sail correctly?

Do you need an exact replica or would a smaller schooner be acceptable?


This is one my dad made using the Metcalf hull, only 36 inches long and sails like a dream with just a steering servo.

Thanks for that Tom, beautiful model,
no it doesn't have to be replica of the Atlantis but one with the built in keel like the Atlantis
that hopefully won't get stuck in weeds as the dropped keel type often do on our lake.

Hi Tom, the Valdiva is not the hull shape I was thinking of so I think it is going have to be the
Atlantis. Thanks for taking the time looking.

Have you considered the Metcalfe Moonbeam?

Looks good on the pond and not backbreakingly heavy.

Hi ned, Moonbeam is 52" & 18lbs in weight. To big for me mate I'm afraid. I thought
