You can see the small ring near the hatch, with the main and jib sheets attached, along with the pink elastic to pull the slack out. There are two fairleads through the bulkhead into the foredeck. The main sheet turns around a block and goes back to the m
The pink elastic looks complicated, but it just runs a block forward, and back to a block on the side of the hull opposite of the fairleads in the bulkhead. THen through the top side of a double block on the servo arm and back to dead end at the block on
Hitec winch mounting in front of mast
Poured in epoxy mixed with West System Microlight. Waterproofs keel box and rudder block. That's after 2 previous internal 'wash' layers of epoxy to seal pinholes.
Have to add block to transom for backstay wire hoop.
Note how rough the bulkhead is. Kept hacking it to make room for small wood blocks and hole for sheet travel from drum.
Once drum servo cross beams added will have increased rigidity in hull sides. Not dependent on bulkhead alone. Drum will be starboard just in front of bulkhead.
1mm aluminium on top of keel/mast box. Drilled for fin bolt. Inside keel box have a vertical sloping divider as mast box. Shrouds offset 15mm behind mast.
Crooked mast ram block as I drilled blind hole un-straight? Small wood blocks epoxied to hold pulley block wire loop and screw eyelet for jib sheet.
Bow cutouts after sure of drum servo location for future access.
Short mast? The 'pot' is a Decor food container. Std pots are too deep.
Decor pot offset from centreline for sheet clearance. Mast post has piano wire hoop epoxied into top.
Rudder servo - mounting stolen from Maximuss build. This way nothing touches hull bottom in case of water ingress.
Rudder arm will be connected with push-pull clevises. Shroud and backstay go in after deck is glued.
Needs some paint. And I need new slippers.....
Bow looks low.
Looks good here.
USOM with a 'cut-down' hull. I lowered the gunwales on this build for looks. Deck gets wet but no 'nose-dives'

Which hull design best suited for which conditions?
Here is a Riptide influenced, balanced IOM 58.86mm maximum Hull depth, a little flat midships but it is good enough to give an idea.
1980 Vintage RC laser
7 working minutes to get all I need to build your IOM, my boat hull will cost me a morning to have a glassed plug, tomorrow will be spent polishing it and making the mould. Sunday day off hull moulded fitted out and on the water a week tomorrow.
Is this where you sail Larry?
If this is not clear please ask
There is very little to suggest this boat is moving. Over on its ear but not a single bubble from the rudder.
The genoa on the real thing with a Model yacht proptioned jib.
Riptide RG65 formers.pdf
Jib Counter weight was bent in a collision. Sails are home made. Deck layout is as clean and simple as possible.
How did I get up there
Go you good thing
Drumbeat vs BR18
Rounding the windward mark, with me trying to catch up
My second Noux2. Not the first..... shown above. This has store-bought sails.
Feel strangely aroused? I do and I did the Photoshop work. Yes that's my face.
There's a series of holes drilled into front of mast. Hook sits in hole for jibstay and bowsie fine tunes.

my triple crown and the vektor. 1/16" balsa with two layer glass over hull
General view. Sidestay support runs under mast tube. All loads taken by this and not by boat. Allows large rig tension.
Easy forestay support. have built recessed tubes etc, but this will do just as well. RX is at highest, driest point in boat, not in a pot. Seems to work very well.
Electronics supported at keel box and mainsheet post only. 3mm ply with 165 gm mat on both sides. Plenty stiff enough if well epoxied to the keel box. Cutout on right required so that winch can be easily replaced through a smallish deck opening (12 * 8 cm
Clean Deck. 2 cm dish in deck behind the mast allows for easy building with some of the benefits of both flat and skiff style decks.
Build pic my second Noux2. Full fibreglass from my mould.
Displacement remains constant but deck becomes deformed
3.5 Kg (Fresh) displacement, Tumblehome hull , forward biased volume
Looking downwind to the race venue clubhouse.
Know that is slab sided
Overall Deck shot
See the hard chine for the stern to the bow
Square bum sort of different to the Squiggle
Another shot showing the chine
you can just see the new RMG winch
