Its a 64 in glass hull i took off of a wooden `pond yacht` . Not really sure what it is. Maybe someone here can recognize her lines. An Eastcoast 12 rig and sails were a great choice for this hull. Sails very well imo here in Nova Scotia.

Agreed.... it seems the members of the local RC flying club here have discovered that sailboats dont need as much work after a crash....

The budget boats are an easy entry point in this situation...

Yep, gotta couple of static wing guys in the club, and I can attest that I sail/boat more than I fly on account the boats have less of a tendency to explode into clouds of Balsa dust when you mess up!

Aaahh the joys of international trade... I would guess the IOM fittings might cost as much as one of the Chinese boats....?

Looks like a Hobbyking Regatta! What is important to keep in mind is that these folks are having a great time and that's the bottom line.

Congratulations - you're making a very nice job of them.

Here on the Gold Coast Australia there has been one delivered and about 4 or 5 more ordered. I've built 2, one for myself - a very good boat. Pity that only club sailors have bought them here - they don't get the accolades they deserve.

Hi Bas
THX for your comment. Since you are in Gold Coast, did you entered the National Regatta last week? Is that Goth with white/green scheme your boat?
I have a Chinese friend who is neighbour of Craig Smith, who sails a NOUX II, I think his sail number is 55, but he was not able to make the Nats...

Sail number 566 with a hand painted dragon on jib is a Walicki F-5E built by one of the top skipper of China, superb performance in light air, owned by local club member.

The green and white one is the Goth I built for a mate. There was also a bright orange one of yours racing - 84 I think.

I was entered but health problems didn't allow me to race. I'd be interested in seeing more pictures of your Britpop knockoff.
