deprived childhood
« 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.....
