A boat I am interested in for my first IOM. Anyone have comments on this boat.

Hi Ernie,

Boat is a modified Bamforth “Stealth” design built by Steve Landau in Orange County,CA.


Thanks for the reply. I knew that, but wondering what anyone knows about it regarding performaance, espically light air performance. we at Lake Balboa Model Yach Club are going to start an IOM class and several members are highly interested in this boat. I was/am considering an Aeres (?) spelling, but wondered if any unbaised sailors could comment on the patriot, or its ancestor.

By the way, we, LBMYC have a new web page just up and running at and there is considerable info on the patriot’s building but not any on performance.
