A Christmas gift for the man who has everything.

The ultimate Christmas gift, for the man who has everything: He has a boat, but he can’t sail it on a local lake like he could sail mine.
It’s an authentic 1:15 eight channel radio controlled scale model of a Colin Archer yawl. The ultimate model yacht, 48” inches long and 56” high, weighing nearly 50lbs. All sails are individually controlled and the jib tacks. It has an electric variable speed motor with forward and reverse. It even has navigation lights. There is a skipper and three crew, along with two cats.
For sale, not a penny less than $3,000 plus freight anywhere.
For more details see the feature article in this months, (Nov/Dec), Good Old Boat Magazine, or contact me through my website.

Re: A Christmas gift for the man who has everything.

I take it you mean my website link. HOME
I don't know why this brings up a security problem. I've not touched it for ever and it worked the last time I used it.
This HOME link works OK.

Re: A Christmas gift for the man who has everything.

Your "Home" link worked for us. (Lovely yacht by the way. Have you fitted the yard on the foremast with a roller sail by any chance?)

Re: A Christmas gift for the man who has everything.

I don’t understand the question: My schooner Britannia clearly has a roller furling squaresail on the foremast. Fitting one on the model would be very hard indeed and unauthentic for this model.

I was referring to your yacht, not the model, although the model is quite impressive as well.

Cheers!

JR,

Your Colin Archer model is a real beauty! I love the tan bark sails.

And Britannia is another beauty!

Cheers from a fellow Down East owner!

My ultimate Christmas gift would be a 25 year old gorgeous nymphomaniac.
But just for the holidays eh?

Re: A Christmas gift for the man who has everything.

Very nice a model, but is it really a Yawl?

If I look at the rudder it should be a ketch?

Greetings from my Fisher 30 (1977) ketch "Trolloeya" living winter in Baltic sea nr Flensborg Fjord.

That's what I was taught. Mizzen forward of the rudder post is a ketch.
Beautiful model!

Re: A Christmas gift for the man who has everything.

Nice looking boat, but almost 50 lbs?
It sure doesn't look like you're holding that much in pix #4.

Look how short the mizzen mast is in comparison to the main. It's a Yawl, regardless of where the rudder is. If it were a ketch the mizzen would be much larger.

Sorry, but that's wrong. Mizzen size is irrelevant.

The fundamental difference between a yawl and a ketch is the location of the mizzen with relation to the rudder post. If the mizzen is behind the rudder post , it's a yawl. if the mizzen is forward of it, it's a ketch.

"Colin Archer Yawl" is a particular style of boat. The "yawl" is a misnomer. You will see a few advertised as "ketch rigged Colin Archer Yawl"

Here's a classic example:
http://www.woodenships.co.uk/sailing...her-gaff-yawl/
...
"43′ Colin Archer Gaff Yawl

...
Gaff ketch rig on solid pine, keel-stepped masts. Pole mizzen mast, fidded topmast to the main."
