Pond yacht, 30ís or earlier pond yacht Project
« on: October 14, 2020, 09:12:09 PM »

I have a model pond yacht I have owned for almost 60 years, I have a mould taken off it and am now making a project of recreating a modern copy to fit with RC equipment, the spars will mainly be carbon fibre, sails of modern materials. Gaff cutter rig.
