Marblehead Identification
« on: February 27, 2015, 12:11:21 PM »

Hi All

Here's another Marblehead I bought some time ago, also off Ebay, its a nice looking yacht , it used to sail at the Canoe Lake in Southsea as a free runner.

I would like to convert it to RC and get some new sails and sort the rigging out.

Does anyone know what it is?

Happy Sailing

Regards

Paul

Looking on the bigger screen, I don't think Pickaxe as I think the
Pickaxe had a forward angled keel.
Lovely lines though.
