I don't mind at all, tarmstro.
I noticed that allradiosailboats doesn't have anything for the "manual" but the "plan" is there.
The backside of the original plan sheet is the actual build instructions, but I only have it in 4 or 5 separate files. Would it be appropriate to enter a link to those files as the "manual"?

Instruction Manual


I did have a chance to try my Kingfish on the pond a few days ago. The wind was at least 15 MPH so it knocked me down a few times. My fingers were too busy sailing so I couldn't get any video. I plan to lengthen the keel an inch or two over the winter. It sailed along nicely on a reach but it didn't like being close-hauled. I had to jibe a few times instead of coming about. It probably will behave better in calmer conditions.

There is now an instruction manual at:

I hope this will be of some use to those wanting to build the model. Even if you have a kit with missing pieces, all parts except for the hull could likely be improvised. Let me know if you are working on one.

I will be posting my build log on this model within a week or so with lots of photos. Look for it on this forum.

I know these posts are quite old but does anyone still have plans for this model?

Thread OP
The Kingfish hill was moulded plastic so there were no plans for that, mostly you received a plans size paper with assembly illustrations. ( if I remember correctly)

Check out the build log link in the post above yours for a nice review.
