Stockmaritime C Class

Came across this new German scale boat from another site that looks sweet. At 1598 FOB Hamberg, a bit expensive but quite nice.

Very pretty, a classic gaff sloop, looks like America's cup racer of the early 1900's. For example, gaff-rigged Columbia defended in 1899 and 1901 against gaff-rigged Shamrock and Shamrock II. By the 1930's, the Marconi rig J class had replaced the beautiful gaff rigs,sigh.

Early Edison movie of the Columbia:
