A fine 28 in. model of a "keelboat"
Suitable for Radio Control
by S. Jewitt
From a sheet of medium hard 1/4 in. x 3 ft. x 3 in. balsa cut outline of keel, noting that there will have to be a join on the level of water line; use machine edge for a good join.
I have not made provision for a rudder assembly, as in many cases the modeller may wish to fit radio or have his own idea on rudder working.
Cut from 3/16 in. medium hard balsa. Once more3/16 I have left the builder choice
Our prototype vessel and others of similar use, are all around the 56 ft. length with a beam of about 17 ft. With a 6 ft. draught, a very able sea boat is produced. Many readers will doubtless have heard of the famous Girl Pat venture by Capt. Dod Osborn, who stole the vessel and crossed the Atlantic; this vessel is similar.
