    In those days a kit was only a set of plans and a box of wood. If I remember only the ribbing was die cut but close to if not most of the rest which was almost everything on teh deck I had to fabricate from the plans

    She's 23" (L) x 4½" (W) x 22" (Bottom/Keel - top/mast)

    Thanks gents

    I started this 1m project in 2004, but sadly was crushed in a move. All hand done, just using the usmagic plans. So much work crushed I haven't had the desire to start over. Couple pics and the plans I used.

    Forgot the plans.

    The pics were pretty early on, It was ready for glass right before it got smooshed. Tons of light filler and sanding, repeated over and over to get it smooth as silk.

    Too much in life right now to build another, build would be fun to find a decent size one RTR for the lakes.

    Will thinking back the 30 years I was unemployed at the time so I had all the time in the world for building such things. Given all I'm interested in these days I can't see myself building another. For my boat I was thinking about varnishing and setting up some place for decoration as it's more for sentimental reasons I keep it around
