11/2/14, Gone Sailing ....

In September I took some time off and attended the US Vintage Model Yacht Group's 20th Anniversary Regatta at Marsh Creek State Park, Pennsylvania. A great time was had with four days of every kind of weather, rain, wind and calm, and a great bunch of people. Four classes of model yachts were sailed, Skipjacks, Schooners and two classes of vintage models, Marbleheads, 50"long with 800 sq.in. of sail, and the 36"/600 sq. in. class. There were more beautiful wood model yachts than you could count ( well almost).

Here's a link to photos of the event, I hope you enjoy them,

8/26/15, Builder's Notes Added ;

After 10 yrs. plus of publishing www.pondyachts.net, and lots of email questions about building processes, I'm offering a brief description of my methods building the models shown. They are certainly not the only way of building these beautiful models, but they have worked for me, and I hope they help anyone interested in pond yachts, even if your not looking to build one. All questions or comments are still always welcome. Just click here ...
