BY S. JEWITT
I HAVE called my model of a modern British motor yacht by Dagless Ltd., Wisbech, "Cynette" and would like to apologise to these builders for any liberties taken in the model's design.
The model can be either diesel or electric powered and anyone who has built a similar type model need have no qualms over the construction of this one, which is both quick and simple. Because of the double planking employed this operation will take a little longer than normal but is no more tedious or difficult. May I also add that I have left certain methods of construction for prospective builders to decide, i.e., the use of bulkheads in ply and the fitting of motors etc. Before commencing notes on building I will say that for any glue joints that will have to take strains, or ply to ply joints, a resin type adhesive, e.g., Casco 'Glue All' or Araldite must be used.
Thank you for looking Rose
