How old is yours? are you the original owner?

I just met a guy (and his Dad I believe) Here last week that drove all the way down from Sacramento to pick up a Santa Barbara he'd found in a local Craigs List Ad.. He said the person selling it from an abandoned storage locker, had NO idea what it was or what it was worth.. and as He walked up and mentioned this, I Immediately passed him to Bob Debow who's been here in SD forever.. Bob said he was wondering what ever happened to that boat.. he'd personally built it many years ago.. we then took a pic of the reunion.

I just find it amazing how well these RC sailboats can survive over the years and retain their value, across different owners in some cases. While I was looking for my ODOM I also met a Soling 50 guy here (Kim) who's hull was made in 1970.. but watching it sail.. it' look to me like it was doing as well or better than the day it was 1st built.. I've sailed a lot of sailplanes and never had one survive that well..

How old is you ODOM? did you build it yourself? does it leak?
Just curious..
