Default whats this

Please help I got this sailboat(free) its in rough shape but I cant find a name anywhere on it. Of all the boats i saw on the net I was unable to see a boat with the same type of keel which is very heavy. If it's worth it I might retsore it any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

hey varicom
at first blush it looks like the Victor Model Products "Stars and Stripes ". length ( 39 " ? ) looks OK and the hull shape too .
that website is www.victor-model.com
If you need any help , there is a club right by you (literally) they meet and sail in Schaumberg .
that website is www.fleet4commanders.org
nice guys , and would be willing to advise you if thats what you want - and they will know where to get any parts
the boat might need .
they do scale models , power RC scale and RC sail .
good luck !

Thanks Thorsail, your info answered my questions about the boat. Fleet4 sails their boats in my backyard so i will contact them. I dont have the heart to toss the boat maybe one of those guys will want it or have spare parts to sell me either way thanks again.
