J Boat

I made a 36" Yankee III J boat using plans from Earl Boebert's book. I built a foam plug and have produced 4 hulls for fellows in our club. So far 3 of them have been finished. They sail quite well in light air but are tender when the wind picks up. Pictures attached.

Yes, The Yankee III is a striking craft.

Here's the link for her, at the U.S. Vintage Model Yacht Group.
