Hey Boomer, looks like some of the links could be updated/removed.
This one:
Thunder Tiger (Manufacturer - China) sells only through dealers
such as Tower Hobbies
Manufacturer's web site: http://www.ttamerica.com/boats/5549-parts.html#

Also this one:
Breaking Wind Boats Produces hulls and decks -
Silver Spring, MD
Web site: http://www.freewebs.com/breakingwindboats/rigparts.htm
As of 1-1-14
Production of all hulls is suspended, stopped , done, no more.


I was looking for a Micro Magic size boat that I could keep in the car at all times - fully rigged.
....just in case I happen to be next to a lake/pond/ocean and have a few minutes of spare time.
Seems like the Blackstar 21 may fit the bill.

BTW, this is a great resource for finding the model that's "right for you".
Thanks for keeping it up to date.

Kit boats are viable options for all levels of RC Sailors. When Martin started this thread years ago, he provided information on a number of companies that offered "kits" - as in any industry, the hobby business experiences changes and some of the information provided at that time has changed. The information below is current as of this date. It is not complete, and will be refined and updated as new information becomes available and time permits. Suggestions are welcome!

The information listed below is for products made here in the U.S. and/or distributed here. You can do your own search for additional information. I am not familiar with all of the companies located in other parts of the world.

Boomer,
Breaking wind Boats is no longer selling boats. Also the Dragon Force RG65 can not be built from scratch, would not be able to sail as DF65 One Design. Also Tippecanoe produces a US1 Meter hill. The Bob Stern design Venom, one of the best of not these US1meter made.
