I’ve always been in love with scale sailboats, since I was a kid I’ve tried to build some, some of them successfully some others not at all. The time passed quickly and now that I finished college I want to try again. This time with a model not so hard but nice enough and I found these plans of machichaco sailboat which I think are pretty detailed and complete. I would like some help from you before getting started.
First of all, the size of the boat. I would like it to be about one meter in length. Which size do you recommend me for a boat like this one?
As I am an engineer I will start by making a 3d model of the boat. I am solidworks professional so it will be easy for me. I also own a laser cutter which I think will be helpful. I am planning to build the boat with balsa because is very easy to handle and very light also. Once I finish the 3d model this post will serve as a build log. Hope it will be interesting for you.
I am from Mexico but now I live at Prague, right in front of the river and I do not want to miss the opportunity to sail there.
