Amati Dorade Yacht

Does anybody know of a build thread for the Amati Dorade Yacht, I'm thinking about buying one that I would like to make into an RC sailboat. Sites that sell it mention RC'ing it but I've not found any information on doing it. I've not been able to find a manual, which might help me in my decision.
Thanks in advance - Jim CJ #503

Hi Jim,

If you build light, which, once you've sealed the hull with glasscloth and epoxy, means removing all material from the hull that's not absolutely necessary, you'll still have a light weather sailor, unless you add a (removable) fin with a bulb, the bulb will carry the lead which would otherwise be in the keel.
This way the boat will gain sufficient righting moment to sail in just about any wind force you'll through at it.

Regards, Jan.
