RE: 10th scale AC Racing Sailboats

RE: #8 or 9 leed shot

Even better than #9 birdshot is lead beading from a blasting booth. If you have any "plating" shops, sometimes large truck tire companies have them... they often cast out their lead beading along...

It's a loss for all of his customers, but I know how Don feels and he is certainly entitled to a rest. I know he will enjoy getting away from it and enjoying his own boats for a change.

RE: Information needed. Can you help me to ID this sailboat?

I studied the pics more carefully (i.e. put on my glasses) and the sweep of the stem looks a little more abrupt on yours... just a hair. Even that could be the construction method or an inadvertant...

RE: Information needed. Can you help me to ID this sailboat?

Well it's not a Newport 12M, but it quite well could be a Reynolds 6M. I still manufacture the boat and it is a wonderful sailing machine. I removed the skeg from the rudder, and went with a...
