Old Marblehead
« on: January 23, 2013, 09:59:17 AM »

While browsing thriugh a Model Maker Plans Catalogue ( Issue 2, price 30P) I saw several models that did the "Rembember that? Oh very nice!" but was looking for a plan of a Marblehead with a hull I could build myself, ditto Sails and Rigging, so it didn't cost as much as a secondhand car! RC gear I have, I came across one, named Genie plan Nr MM 1175, I looked in the X List but no sign of it. Does anyone know owt about her? I know she won't keep up with the modern Sailing machines, but at least I can join in! Also I could be a better sailor than some of them and still be competitive. There was another model that caught my interest, she is a Land Yacht, named " Sand Fairy Ann" Plan number MM 466, sort of thing you can sail on a local car park. Anyone out there help me? Been out of circulation for the last few weeks, but hope to be back more often now...

Hi Nordsee, I know where there is a hull for Genie by Vic Smeed, just the bare 4 planks of a hard chine hull.
I will send you  PM

hello, yes I would appreciate that. How can I pay you? Shall I send you Euros in a letter? Difficult for me to get pounds Sterling here. Look forward to your reply, Jim.
