Is the Montery Clipper in pic#18 kit or scratch? I'd love to see the lines plan for it.

I guess it qualifies as scratch. I made the mold off of a plug which a friend and I made off the lines from Chappelle. It was built in 1985 and displayed at the Vancouver Expo, Burnaby regatta several times, and up and down the West Coast many times. She is 27" on the waterline and 32" over the perpindiculars. Weighs 6 lbs, working lights, Vantec ESC, twin 1.2ah batteries(Gel cells), Dumas 6v motor, Ace Servo on the rudder. And can still keep the youngsters busy in a steering contest. Built for the wife, have to get permission to run everytime I take it to the lake. She is a GRAND OLD LADY at 26 years young and really proud of her new 2.4ghz radio so no more freq. conflicts. Was on the First place team again this year. So if she shows up on lakeside, beware as she is a tough old bird and does not take any prisoners.

Chesguy Contact me offsite and we can discuss a copy of the offsets if you cannot access locally. Am not interested in doing a lot of copies but would do enough for a modeler to build from. Personal e-mail is leeduvall@Juno.com. copies will be in the $20 range since they are big sheets.

Hey guys,

I didn't have the chance to tell everyone and this is kind of last minute, but there will be another night run tomorrow (Friday the 23rd) at 7:30pm at Spreckels Lake. So far it is confirmed that a couple guys and gal would be there. So come on down if you can.
