  1. Once the hull on the 65/95 cracks ( usually just in front of the black keel support on the bottom of the hull) they can be a devil to repair properly. In the long term, you might be better to buy one of the spare hulls and transfer the parts over. That is what I did when I got one of these cracks in the 95. Almost impossible to see unless you put pressure on the hull.

  3. No chance of posting?
  4. That is good news. When I spoke to him a while ago, he was recovering from a nasty accident caused while doing some D.I.Y. at home. The website appears to be working fine this morning after a couple of days struggle. Perhaps my service provider was having DNS issues?
  5. Looking for something "yachtwise" yesterday and went to have a look on the Nylet web site. Normally no issue but it seems very difficult to get onto all of a sudden. Does this mean that Frank has given up on us at last ?
  6. That looks lovely. I know what you mean about weight. My old A Class weighs 51lbs and while impressive, I am not sure that I am going to manage moving and launching that very often.

  8. Finally sold for £77 which seems quite cheap for what it is.
  9. The gentleman that I bought my Revival 6m restoration project from , is selling a rather nice "A" class. Anyone have any ideas if it is an A and if so, what design? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/A-Class-model-sail-boat/324212900422
  10. Just out of interest, a rather nice example of the ever popular Graupner Optimist popped up on Ebay this morning. Very tempting if it wasn't so far away from me. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-RC-YACHT-BIG-HEAVY-WELL-MADE-SAILING-BOAT/184344658161?hash=item2aebcc40f1%3Ag%3AZhUAAOSwRute-LlK&fbclid=IwAR3lvwK2tHk1el4JObxvtrODHxEaoAsIsVWbMfDBFpdWwC5fmxzbVVo2gp4
  11. In what way has the MYA stopped you sailing ?
  12. Think that should be righting moment. Mind you, looking back at some sailing sessions, perhaps you are right, Mike !!
  13. I have been using two of them for a couple of years and they are super little bits of kit.
  14. Perhaps a cheapish one that has a couple of channels that can be controlled proportionally by knobs would be more useful. Would suggest something like the Turnigy TGY-i6. Actually on this, you can assign two of the channels to either a switch or a knob . It also has a channel operated by a 3 position switch as well. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-tgy-i6-mode-2-afhds-transmitter-and-6ch-receiver.html?queryID=16badbcee626b55a7971fb683dc5435c&objectID=45922&indexName=hbk_live_magento_en_us_products
  15. As for a ballast casting, P J Sails advertise one for a 6 metre " 6m approx. 9.4 kg no slot @ £80.00"
