Hi Dave,

Did Richard mention why he was selling it 😀😀😀😀😀😀

Unless it's fitted with a motor ??

Ben Ainsley heard I'm developing a foiling Thames Sailing barge , he is asking for tips for the America's Cup 👍⛵⛵

Regards Ray

Hi Ray

Richard was selling on behalf of someone

Trouble was I bought it in February

It's because Richard came across on the ferry that I've got it now.

Don't forget Ben sails round my back garden

Ive been taking notes

Hi Dave,

If you want her to go fast I would review those very wide keels ? Have a look at my Giralda build earlier on this thread, narrow & deeper if you want to give me some competition 😀

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
