For Sale
Seawind RC Sailboat

Almost new, only sailed 3 times at Sunday Sloopers in Orlando. Built to be exactly minimum weight. I built this one to be just for racing since I had another Seawind for practice. Reinforced keel area. Futaba S-3003 for the rudder and Hitec HS-715BB for the sails. Guan Li Skysport 4 tx and 6 channel rx. I have the original box that it came in if I have to ship it. Very unique tiger paint. $750 OBO for all plus shipping. Andy

I like the tiger theme. That is the orange tiger and I have done a blue tiger. It takes a lot of work to do the stripes since I don't want the weight or the lines to affect the boat's performance.

I made it out of a fuel filter that you can find in a hobby shop. The filter unscrews and you take out the middle strainer. Then you tap the two ends and thread the rod in. I used the stock end pieces so it should be a legal vang for class racing. I made a bunch of these vangs for any other of the Seawind guys from my club.

The vang should be on the Seawind forum. I found it a while ago and it listed how to build it. Here are some more pictures. It really isn't that hard to build. It made adjusting the vang tension very easy.

There are limited modifications that you can do and still be class legal. We have a strong fleet in Orlando and any changes had to kept class legal. The keel area on the bottom of the hull was reinforced with epoxy because of it being a weak area. It was modified exactly as the class rules allow. Everything on the boat and rig was made as light as possible so it would be minimum weight. I do have an extra set of sails that I will include with the boat but aren't class legal because they weren't from the Kyosho factory. The hull and keel are very fair and smooth, any drag will make the boat slower. I also played around with mast rake, moving it back was very fast upwind but hurt the downwind performance.
I have the original box it came in when new and I have some spare parts, decals, that I never used.
