Jauginette 50cm Yacht?
« on: June 30, 2016, 10:18:15 PM »

Jauginette was a 50cm simple yacht/skiff, wide transom, huge sail area, designed by frenchman Pierre Jahan from way back 80's-90's.

Drawings of formers and side elevation are available to down load from french websites,
along with building sequence photographs of the models structure sitting on a complete plan with all details and sails sizes etc,
it is this drawing I am hoping to locate.

I'm guessing it might have been a free plan in one of the french model magazines (MRB etc?)

Can anyone in 'Mayhem Land' help with any info please, I have found ref to 2 models built and sailing in the Southend area,
this is a a long shot but here's hoping, regards Zippy

Hi Zippy


The original drawing was coming from the Eol a model store in Paris but Janot who wrote this article on Internet Navimodélisme and built the boat said that Eol never answered to his e-mail about Jauginette 


I checked the Eol internet site and this plan is no more available  http://www.eolmodelisme.com/


Then there are PDF drawing with the Janot article http://navi.modelisme.com/article355.html  (scroll down)


May you can contact Albertus the webmaster of Navimodélisme - it's a nice man always ready to help  - and then asking Janot e-mail.

In fact Zippy  - clicking on the name of Janot you can contact the author   http://navi.modelisme.com/article355.html


Then you have to fill this page  http://navi.modelisme.com/auteur238.html


This report on Navimodélisme was published 10 years ago, I just hope Janot is still reachable

Hi Xtian,

Thanks again for the replies, they are very interesting - I recognised EOL on the plan from somewhere??
and thankfully you came up with the answer, now it all makes sense -
the plans were sold through a large Parisian model store, and not as I had asumed in a magazine.

I'll try emailing Janot and will post any results here on Mayhem, very good of you to take the time responding.

Regards Zippy
