I see you went with the optional color interior that the Sea Maid had. If memory serves me right their were three options for the interior colors. Looking good !!! Donít forget to post some picís of her running.

A couple pics of the SeaMaid at Aylesworth Park near Scranton. Tried to get one of her up on plane, but my wife wasn't able to track with the camera without blurring. Planes very nicely, turns well and looks pretty! (both the boat and the wife!)

Really nice job on the Sea Maid. I like the idea of using the all natural color of the wood for a really different look.

You should have let your wife run the boat and then you could have taken pictures of both your beauties.

That is called scoring points for the next boat build.

Congrats on a nice looking Sea Maid. The Sea Maid was the first boat I ever enlarged from a magazine drawing to about 36" long. It was from a model airplane magazine back when I was in Jr. high school.

bub9797- When I attend the boat shows I come as Rich Koll, Garden State Model Boat member, not as M.A.C.K. Products. NO, I do not bring kits to sell on my day off.

The kits are in stock and can be ordered from M.A.C.K. Products over the phone at 732-870-2966, or FAX at 732-870-1594, or picked up at LONG BRACH HOBBIES at 732-222-5122.

We will have all the new models on display at the Lake Hopatcong show how every, along with some truly outstanding models built by other club members.

I would have to say that this kit should be some were in the $350.00 range.

By the way the model will be 35 inches in length with a beam of 12 1/2 inches. The 18’ Sea Maid was the next size down from what Sterling Models modeled which was the Sea Maid 20’. Believe it or not when you look at the two boats the only real way you can tell them apart other than measuring them is by the deck step pads. The 20’ had two per side centered in each cockpit, the 18’ had one step pad centered between the two cockpits.

Oh yea! The 18’ Sea Maid was faster than the 20’ with the Racing Fireball 160 with triple carbs and duel exhaust. This was the same motor that was used in the Century Thunderbolt.
hi frankg I got the plans for a 1/4th scale 20' sea maid 58" long and they are a little vague and no info on where to get a hardware kit if you can help me my no. is 701 520 3384 or e-mail is rdaigre302@gmail.com thanks rick
