It is 44" long and, after trawling the internet for pilot boat photos, looks to be an old Halmatic Nelson 40 . That would make it 1/11th scale. Strange they didn't make it 1/12th scale.

sounds real nice size for a pilot boat.
i did see a 6 footer at beale park once, now that looked like you could almost get inside it


44 inch is nice sensible size


have you got any pics of it / or video if its a runner

Now that is realy nice.
its not the same as the one i remember, the one im talking about the wheelhouse was not as long, giving more room behind it. but this looks to be a great model..
what is the beam of this ? 
with that top off you have a ton of room to play around under there.
will make a fantastic boat when finished.


i do like that, looks to be well made.

It does indeed. I like the old black & white scheme pilot boats used to have. The fact that the hull has a black gel coat and the rest white gel coat is an added bonus if she gets any scratches.
