A gem of a buy.

well this is what I paid £62 quid for on EBAY and its an absolute gem...…just needs a good clean. A 5 ton gaff rigged yawl!

double diagonal planked hull, and resin sealed inside.....beautiful steel galvanised mast and rigging fittings, a motor and a servo to the rudder......needs sorting inside but that wont take more than a few hours, and then a good clean and I have my own beautifully built sailing boat...…..can't wait for the summer...……..62 quid well spent.

it has Bill...……...I cannot remember buying another model purely for pleasure of keeping it to sail myself that I haven't built as I scratch build predominantly my own, or very rarely, kit build if something special comes my way...……

so I think this little gem will feel at home with my other models, lol......
