Title: deprived childhood
Post by: neil howard-pritchard on March 01, 2019, 10:51:07 AM
I lead a deprived [some say depraved] childhood, as I never had a yacht to sail, and is probably why I went into scale and kept with it from the age of 8.....

but then came along this little beauty on ebay, and I just had to have a bid.....won it for 62 quid....a steal......and it is so beautifully built, plank on frame, i'm so looking forward to sailing it this summer. it has a beautiful set of nice calico sheets, a motor and prop shaft fitted, and only needs a servo and esc fitting to make it a nice little sailor.....

Neil.....

Double & diagonal 1st layer of planks to boot.......& the died Calico sheeting is so prototypical of the Waxed Falxen originals  :terrific................
