Finally got around to continuing this prototype project.
The stage now is that I've nearly finished a 4mm ply hull just over a metre long which is near metre class.
I have a variety of bits over here now that I made for 1m class boats including some keel weights and foils, so I'm going to make use of them. I'm not spending too much time on cosmetics because it's only a prototype and the thing has to be cheap, easy and quick as there is a big likelihood of it being lost at sea. The ply is from the crates from the house move, for example.

OK, the boat is finished and tested on a lake! I only need to install the release mechanisms for the fishing line, which is not as simple as it sounds if it will tow out more than one line without tangling.
