Victor Models - Ruby B.

Victor Models - Ruby B. - A beautiful detailed R/C model of an 1800's Pilot Boat. These were used to ferry harbor pilots to and from ships where they would guide them into port with their local knowledge. The style is a Gaf-rigged Cutter. It has a solid lead keel which is made to resemble a swing keel. It weighs about 10 lbs and is 49 inches high by 34 inches in length. It's beam is 10.5 inches. It sports 547 square inches of sail. The deck is custom planking.

It comes complete with radio transmitter, receiver, two servos and battery pack.

It sails quite nicely, even in fairly heavy wind.
When not sailing it makes a fabulous conversational and mantle piece

You can see the kit and specifications here:

I posted the build of this boat here:

I am located in Raleigh NC. If you cannot come and get the boat I can ship it.

I'm asking $400 + shipping. The kit alone retails for $325.

Probably not but what are you proposing to trade?

Realize that I'm getting out of R/C boating and moving aboard a full-size sailboat. Not a lot will interest me because I'm heavily down-sizing.

I believe the shipping is about $70. I believe it would be an oversized package which gets charged at a higher rate.
