    Been ten years I last sail this boat. Took me most of the afternoon to repaired broken parts and put in a new receiver, and off she went! It was a beautiful day for sailing. I think the water is deep enough for my bigger sailboats. I am going have to get the big boats sea worthily too.

    Wow! that's tough luck if you don't like confined space.

    1st, U.S.S. Good Duck I. 1 meter, need new paint job and new remote. 2nd, U.S.S. Good Duck II. 22", need to see more water. 3rd, U.S.S. Good Duck III. 1 meter, under going complete overhaul. My fastest race boat. Need a lot of love right now. She will be seaworthy again, hopefully soon. <3

    Very nice. I have one, the overall length is around 2.5 feet. It has a full fiberglass hull, kind of a "J" class shaped hull, full keel, in other words. I always enjoyed the full size ones more though. ;)

    I wish to build a 16 foot maybe 18 foot, Sharpie style Sailboat, with a self tending jib and a Marconi rig. I really want to teach my son how to sail, and I have enough salt in me to do this. Maybe a Yawl, to allow for hoving to. :)
