Default 1.5m Volvo 70 build

Hey everyone,
This is the start of my new 1.5 meter long Volvo 70 build. Now with some help from you blokes out there she should end up being a fast boat with a full canting keel system. Here is the system that I will try to copie.

This is the paint job that I will be doing on my boat. I'm using the Vela RC plan of the VOR 70 (Ericsson - Abn Amro) and changing it abit. Here is a link to a German site that has the canting keel systme that I will use but on a much bigger scale http://www.stockmaritime.com./modell.../allgemein.php

Just curious,

How long will the mast be? and how do you plan to transport the boat to the water? You need at least a ute.

Reminds me of the guy who built a full size boat in his basement . No offence... I have a 1.7m boat which just fits in my car.

Hey Larry,
I have a wagon so it will either go inside the car or on the roof. The mast will be about 2.1mlong and will be stepped through the deck to the bottom of the boat like my 10 rater. The masts that I use now for my 10 raters are 2.2m long and they fit inside the car so the boat should fit with the seats down.

Just a quick update,
I have now redone all the formers for the smaller hull and are ready to glued onto the ply, so I should be able to make some forward progress this week.


till next time

Yes it is a nice looking boat as I see by your little I.D pic on the left. I'm just glassing in the keel box for the ETNZ AC boat at this point.
