Description

"Barbara" I bought this at Beaulieu. They wanted £80, end of day I got it for £50. Put it in the bath It sank. The paint was porous? and the wood underneath certainly had a fault or two which removal of the paint a bit confirmed. Too good to scrap, needs a sure footed repair, no sails, mast is a joke. No steering but there is a rudder of sorts. No engine, but a challenge for a modeller. This put me off this way in to the hobby, but to a new person..knowing the faults.... at £20? Warning it is 4 feet long , dry now, but heavy.
Sorry to see it go, it makes a great ornament in the bay window. You can buy model boats new in a box but this is a better way to enjoy the hobby...if it still exists.... in the age of Chinese made drones for just twice the price? If you are under school leaving age ( proof of) ask for a £5.00 off "new to this hobby" discount.
