Default Mini-12 hulls

I am an old RC person that has fallen in love with the Mini-12 sailboats. I have seen them on their website and have tried to contact Ken Wilson for pricing. No response as of yet. Does anyone know of a hull or model that is available. I would like to know what anyone thinks of this model.

Is that the same as the New Zealander's call a 'Footer'?

I'm always interested in new boats (new to me anyway) so I did a web search for the Mini-12 and the Footy. They're both very different but look great. I'm very very close to buying myself a Footy; it's a great size for city folk like me.

[email protected]#$%! I'm going to have to go back to work! I'm finding too many boats I want. But for $50, shipped anywhere in the world, is just too good to pass up.

I will comment to both LtDoc and Alex909. I had never heard of the NZ "Footy" until now. I looked it up and it sure is cute and reasonably priced. It is however, a lot different than the Mini-12. If I can ever find out any pricing on the mini-12 I will most likely get one, and I just may get a Footy too. Know what you mean about wanting too much. Thanks for your replies. I appreciate any info that I can get.
Regards, Dave

Mini-12 hulls should start at $150 CND and run up from there, depending on 'how finished' you want teh boat / hull to be.

contact Frank Scott at teh mini-12 website..

A dumb question but how does $150 Canadian convert to US $ ? I have not contacted Frank Scott yet. I tried to contact Ken Wilson but have not heard back from him to date. I will keep trying as I want to find out all I can about the Mini-12. I have been to the website and still need and want more. Thanks everyone for your comments.

I'm attracted to the Fun 430.
It is larger than the Footy, but still small enough to easily transport.
The extended length, beam and freeboard would lend themselves to a more seaworthy boat in small ponds.
It looks to be more water tight too.
I'll keep an eye out as to their availability and likely order one next year.
The Footy looks like it would do well in something as small as a hot tub.
