Yacht Plans ?
« on: November 04, 2013, 10:49:41 PM »

Hello again after a long spell away I am back and would like to build a timber yacht from plans but have been unable to find any I like I would like one the same style and size as a Victoria from T/Tiger but not any larger do to transport, I fancy planking  the decks in two colours of wood also not more than too sails. Can any one recommend any thing I am happy to pay for plans postage ect.    Many Thanks Peter. :-))

Racing Sparrow  :-))
Comes in at 750mm same as Victoria.
Google it
.
I know you can download the plans fonr free and I
think you can now get an e-instruction book.
Can't give you the links as I am on my phone.
I have built the 650mm version and you can get the
plans for a 1 metre as well.
They are cracking little sailers.

Hi Peter,
another vote for the racing sparrow - I bought the e-book (including the plans )only a couple of days ago for NZ$ 8.00 (only about 4.40) and it looks good.
Finished the yellow Stag yet ??

Thanks for info on Sparrow looks good will go for one of them.  Thanks again  Peter.
 
And no Keith engine / gearbox to fit, all interior finished but no rush as have red one to use no fun in cold garage now prefer warm modelling indoors. Thanks Peter.

Hi Peter,
I too would recommend the Racing Sparrow. It was my first attempt at planking a hull and deck, found it very satisfying to do. My "Miss Sunshine" is on the Racing Sparrow home page.


Cheers, Terry

Here is my Racing Sparrow. I found it a relatively easy build and the instruction book very clear, although it took me a while to work out what Bog was!

My vote also would go for the Racing Sparrow.
 
Built mine from the book and attached plans; found them quite easy to follow; sails well

Couple of Smeed designs, Wing-ray, has an aerofoil sail or Sea Urchin MM class. Both hard chine designs.

Thanks , Dickyp
                       It will be the rigging most likely that I get in a muddle with but I will see when I get to that stage in the build.  Peter.
