Man thats a nice boat! I wish My victoria looked like that... I like how all that rigging is done inside the mast. Here's a goal for ya! Try to make your sails whiter than his! AAHHH HAA HAA HAA HAA!!!

If your too cheap to buy a $6.00 CF mast, a long wooden dowl will do fine.

inside the mast? whats inside the mast???? all i see is the end of the guide rod in the top of it.
$6 is about 4.50, which i would have brought, however.... the tubes where 12 so not really worth it. that tube was DAMN thin and i couldnt have drilled for anything to it. the thicker tubes ( as heavy as my dowel anyway ) were 14!!!
i did however get two little off cuts of CF bar which will make very nice booms size is about 3x7x250mm

Oh, waddya know... I guess I looked at the picture wrong. That still must be a very good set up. I suggest you try to make yours like that.

And hey, if you took 200 pictures over all, with three being the yahct, then that makes 197 of planes. Hmmm. Are we a little trigger happy here? I took 169 of a hiking trip once... But still, 197 pictures of nothing but this expensive hobby? Thats a LOT!

What class boat is that one. Being here in the US I'm not familiar with the class symbol on the mailsail. Any website where I can see the specs. In the US the main sailing governing body is the AMYA (amya.net) and they have all the specs for all the different classes. I saaume there is an organization in Europe and probably also the UK that organizes all the different classes and recognizes championships.

Make sure it isnt to heavy or too thick. Try to make it the same as the original mast.

It comes up with a screen that says, (sorry, this website could not be found) I tried loading it as a bmp. And it was too big and so was GIF. I'll try again.
