just a assembly drawing


Hi Phil,

enclose a scan of an only very short information about this boat in a German modelboat magazine back in August 1980.

Sailarea was said to be 4800 cm² by 91,5 cm hull length. No other data available. To that time the modelboat world association Naviga have had a “X-class” (beside M and 10R) for more or less experimental sailboats where just the sail area was restricted to 5000 cm² and the author of that article (F.K.Ries) suggested Mickey Finn to be suitable for that class beside its one design intention by the designer.

Regards
Thomas

I remember that the offset pivot of the lower mast section was a unique feature of that boat-very interesting.
