The Vic is a nice boat once you have sorted it, and even straight out of the box it's one of the best easy build boats out there.
I was lucky; a local model shop was doing a deal with boat and all electronics as a complete package, and so I bought my first boat.
This was before I had internet, and I didn't even know about about MMI!
It was the best speculative purchase that I've ever made, and is still going strong after more than 10 years.
Here are a few pics of mine at our local pond:
I'm not trying to hijack this thread away from the original question, but I truly believe that the Vic is a much better boat
if you want to enjoy your sailing.
Here are a couple of links for the Vic.
And there's an article in the new(November) copy of MMI showing a build as from the box.
