Im just here to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me. I’m an ex-rc heli pilot who decided to look for something different. I’ve always been into boats and sailing but never realized how complex and fascinating it all is. Ive made a few small little “unmanned” sailboats to throw out onto the lake for fun and have finally decided to make use of all my heli equipment to make a full rc sailboat now.
My current project is a square rigger of my own design but I’ve been reading up lately on various modern sailboat designs. This is my first time building my own boat from scratch and not from a kit and I definitely have hit some snags here and there. Im already looking down the barrel of my next project which will be a typical US One Meter design of some kind with traditional sails and possibly a third project of making a trimaran/catamaran with a fixed wing sail design. I’m not currently working from a kit because I do like the challenge of building things by scratch but my novice skills are definitely showing with all the small errors and inconsistencies I have in my current build. Im hoping to learn from this one and possibly hone my skills a bit further.
I cant seem to post images yet so whenever I do get permission ill post a pic of my current square rigger.
