Update: the experts at the British site concur it is a Chinese copy and not a True Birkenhead Star Yacht. It apparently is a Bosun Boats knockoff of the Star Yacht, and a fairly close copy, except for the sails and logo. As far as I can tell by testing in my kiddy pool, she handles pretty well even so. The site had downloadabl PDF's of the original sailign instrution sheet, so I can rig hr properly.
So I'll fix her up and let the kids free-sail her in the same trout pond where I do my RC sailing. We'll either use my RC sailboat to shepherd it back, or the old Popeil Pocket fisherman with a tennis ball covered in treble hooks. Prepare to repel borders, YAR!!! I'll also add a screw eye tot he top of the mast, and then we can use a long sturdy stick with a hook on the end to launch and recover her on the steep banks of the pond.
