Hey boat and sailing enthusiasts! As promised in my introduction, I'm going to start a thread about my old lady (a Robbe Comtesse) and her way back into the water. I originally build this boat (very badly as I have to admit) when I was about 13 or 14. Sailed her for a few summers and had fun with her! I recently got back into the hobby and found Medics video about the sailing boat. So I went to search for the boat and found it in the cellar. Here is what she looks like right now (I've cleaned her though..): The good things: The sails look good and are intact, the mast and the booms (?) are allright (even though I made a few mistakes 20 years ago ). The servos still work!! I was amazed about it but they seem to be in good shape. The hull seems good (even though it is now yellow??). The things that need work: I have to put electronics in - will post my ideas a bit later. The on-off switch has to be replaced. I'd like to have the mast and the sails "removable" for transport, so I have to find a way for the shrouds (?) to be removable. I want to paint her and if I find a way I'd love to have a wooden deck! I have to fix some mistakes on the inside that I did when I build her - like the steering servo is just "glued" on at one side... and the rudder is kind of loose. The aim is to do as much as I can without spending any money and using stuff I already have or can get cheap. Any thoughts or ideas - please share them!! Schiff ahoi!!
