  1. Hi everyone This is my second venture into model boat building. The first model was an unbuilt yacht design by a Sydney amateur yacht designer; this one is a much earlier design by the same man - E.C. "Cliff" Gale. Karoo was a 20' open sailing boat with a bowsprit & gaff sloop rig. Karoo was raced & was also a family boat. Incredibly they (Cliff & Mrs Gale, plus 3 strapping young sons) used to pack her full of gear for holidays & spend a week or two aboard on Pittwater, Broken Bay & the associated waterways Cowan Creek, Coal & Candle Creek etc. I'm doing a half model of the boat, as a gift for our sailing club model wall. The Karoo was a quick boat, I know because a copy was built about 20 years ago & despite her being given a fairly conservative sailing rig she is well able to keep up or beat with larger yachts. As with the last model the drawn information is not complete, but there are some photos of the original boat. And also I have one of the sons - Bill - who at 95 or so still has an astonishing memory when it comes to yachts. The drawing would have been done from a design half model, Cliff shaped the design in a bread & butter half model, layers dowelled together, & separated them to get the drawn lines. I plan to show some details beyond just the hull: gunwale & toe rail, lower section of the mast, bowsprit, rudder & tiller, centreboard. Coincidentally, it was 90 years plus 10 days ago this drawing was done: The lines show a shallow dishy hull with clean underwater lines; the shape is beamy & shallow. A 40% beam:length ratio is wide, but beamy is (or was) quite common in Sydney: Here, cantering under spinnaker at Pittwater, in the early 30s: This is the rebuilt version, she was slightly lengthened & made finer in the bow. Interestingly the owner's one comment is that she tends to bury the bow downwind under spinnaker. I'm guessing the original didn't do that, or as much, with more buoyancy in the bow. On the left, A12, with a removable cuddy cabin for cruising.
  2. A new beginning to an old project. I acquired the Amati Endeavour around 2005, let it sit for awhile and then started it, only to drop it again after minimal progress. Here is the kit box. Got the bulkheads installed, deck base added, and started mast tapering (seen on the grooved board I used to keep it straight over the years). Sorry for the messy area, but the desk will need to be cleaned of model railroading stuff before I restart this project! lol btw - The tools alone were "almost" worth the cost of the kit. Used several of them over the years for other modeling tasks!
  3. So I was pressed by the Admiral to sell my dream car a 1971 beetle. The car was out of capabilities to repair and she didn't like it sitting around. She was very generous though in that she told me I could take a portion of the money and get my self something. I have been wanting to build an rc sail boat for some time but now I finally have some money to throw at it. I will admit I am one of those crazies that doesn't want to do a T(numeral) kit. I want to do something I think is a little more fun. I know it's crazy but so am I. What I'm thinking of doing is a simple ship like the Ferret in the book "Story of Sail". The sails won't be far from a beginners kit type ship just a gaff along with the boom on the mainsail and an extra jib. I have the plans more or less figured out but I'm not sure what to do as far as electronics. I know I need servos a receiver and remote but which ones are best? Where's the best place to get them? Is there anything I'm missing or should know? Thank you for your advice.
