Moore 24


Thank you RS,

156 were built. So that helps........

I would buildher into production at:

1/8 scale: 36"

1/6 scale: 48"

Note about 1/6........

Plans are for the J/24 to be also built. I have already the San Juan 24 at 1/6. Would make a nice fleet of three designs.....

Your thoughts

J/111 next to J/121


The latest model is large compared to the J/111.


She will be a powerhouse.

Not sure how well a model of the Moore would sail. It would probably need a different design for a keel than what the full size boat has, to be efficient. The boat was designed as a downwind surfer and in RC form would probably not go upwind well. Still would make a cool model and I would have to have one. I owned Hull # 138 which had the cabin top deck. My brother still owns #7 which is the original flush deck version. The Moore is a great boat and is fun to sail off the wind in breeze and waves.

Keels


Hi Rich,

All models we build have a no weight scale keel version along with optional 2-3 deeper for rc sailing.

If you love your big boat ,you may love your scaled sailing model no matter the speed or perfomance.

I will see if the Olson family will grant me permission and then I will tool both scales.

Hi John,

The catboat needs primer sealer before tooling. Weather needs to warm up for that contractor.

Volv. 65 has already been made(I have one(
Mc 31 might be a good one.
Flying Scot being made by Steve Lasts (Midland,MI) see pic. 1/6 scale(38")

Good boats as well. Have plans for the Morris line. Scales only: 1/4,1/5,1/6,1/8,1/10,1/12,1/16 for rc sailing. Nothing in between

I'd take a look at a Yankee One Design, if you want something traditional. A 1/8 scale works out to 45 3/4" LOA, 9.3 lbs displacement. Plans on the net.

Cheers,

Earl

Dean,

Actually you should contact Ron Moore at Moore Sailboats in Watsonville, Ca.. Ron is the original builder of the Moore 24.

If you do end up building a model of the boat I would be very interested in having one both for display and sailing with another keel. Thanks.
