The two boats pictured below are for sale. One is a 6ft long, radio controlled model of ‘Bluenose’.
The hull is plank on frame construction: the frames are marine ply and the planks are oak, cut from floorboards from an old school.
The rigging is spring-loaded and clips onto the right tension. Two thirds of the masts are made from old snooker cues.
The main wheelhouse can be lifted off to expose the servo for the rudder.
The deck is watertight.
The floorboards from the old school ensure that the oak is seasoned. The floorboards, in 6ft lengths and 5” wide, were cut on a small band saw to ensure it will flex but be strong.
It’s sailing abilities can be seen on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0GeZoeH1jc). This is obviously the lake at Fleetwood model boat club.
The boats are located in Reddish, Stockport and can be seen by arrangement with the seller, Mrs Jean Gilburt, tel 0161 429 6751, or 07771 860823.
