Thanks for the info Bob. It looks fast. I have seen Wheeler Class boats get up on plane like your 1.7 meter.

Material to construct these boats is carbon fiber and S glass for the deck. These are very fast boats and exciting to sail. You can get them on plane when the wind is up. You can contact Wick Smith, the builder or Larry Rap, the class secretary on the AMYA web site.
Happy sailing, Bob
Beautiful boat, and way nicer than a Wheeler IMHO. Unfortunately I just read that the 1.7 class dropped below the minimum of 20 boats for AMYA sanctioned status. Too bad, but big expensive boats like these are a tough class to grow.

Semiscale catboat footy Brando

This small model is a nice example of "semiscale" footy : a decent sailer not too ugly.

My prototype ITA 14 has been the first one of more than 200 sisterships around the world.

Plans available at www.woodenboatstore.com

GUZ - the pictures don't do your Monarch justice. Looks even more gorgeous in person.

Might need a shot on a stand in the shade.

Beautiful Photos Guz!

Below are some pictures from one of our sailing regattas. May 2010. I belong to the Indianapolis Admirals and we have a great bunch of sailors. We do One Meter Open and also our one-design class is the Victor V-32. Very successful class. We probably have 25 or more V-32's in the club. Of course, they don't all come out, but we've had nearly 15 at some regattas!

I don't know the story on this beautiful ship. Maybe you guys do know what she is? All I know is that I was in awe. Wow! That fourth picture I used for my computer desktop for several months. It was a treat to watch it sail in amongst our V-32's.

She is a very common sight sailing here on San Diego Bay. Dennis Conner bought her and brought her to San Diego for charters, sunset sail trips, etc.

Thats the replica. The original is long gone. Didn't know that Conner bought her. I know he's been very involved with the classic stuff for the past 5-10 years or so.

Very cool.

I hoped one of you would know. The builder is Todd Reifers of Indianapolis. He's an artist by trade: http://www.toddreifers.com/

He paints beautiful nautical paintings of boats too. Spend some time in his gallery. You will see. Raw talent. Man, I wish I could do something like that.:
