Today marks 3 full years of making the Ready Made Hull. My goal in the beginning was unclear other than to make the RG65 a household name, by providing a base to build the best boat for the smallest price possible. I was new to RC sailing then and wanted to build my own boat. RG65 was the perfect class, other than 3 measurements I could do anything I wanted to do. Little did I know the depth you can take the theory and technology of sailing to on a boat of this size. Every part of the boat has so many choices. You build it, weigh it, and then build a smaller, lighter, stronger part next time. That is the part I find most interesting, the more you do it, the more you find something new to try. Be careful, I now have a flotilla of RG’s, 2 Victoria’s, a Soling 1M and an ODOM (so far in these 3 years).
I’m happy to see the introduction of the newest low cost ready to sail RG65. What a great idea, and full out effort on that one. Best of luck to all the team! We will all benefit with club growth from this one across the board. Get people on the water and they will come back time and again better and stronger.
This is my time to take a break. I have decided for a number of reasons to stop making my hulls. The website will be up (cuz it’s paid for) for a while with information and support for the hulls, I know some are still sitting on benches all over. Spare parts should be available if needed. Thank you one and all to my new friends who joined me in this adventure. I have talked to people around the world and we shared many ideas and had a ball all the way.
What some of you have done with my bare hull is simply Amazing.
See you on the water!!
