Geo,

Once again nice work. Always enjoy reading about your builds and there is much to learn, too.

Hi George,
    Spotted your posts and wow! what a build. I hope I can get my Sun XX1 somewhere near your standard they are absolutely spot on and look great on the water. Keep up the good work.
     Cheers,
         Peter.
     Keep on tugging!
The photo is my Lowgarth Mountfleet models but my own design and build (the kit quality and fit was very poor) I scatch built the superstructure from photos of the Foylegarth and scaled it off the figures. Sails superbly.

Hi again Pete,
    Sorry about the name change, don't know where I got George from. Two superb boats.
       Cheers,

Yet another great build George.
What plans did you use?  I have some basic looking Cervia plans..... any use really for an Empire Margaret build should I decide that rather that Cervia. Just collating at the moment as working on my other boats at present.

The plans of Cervia are exactly what you want to build the XXVI or XXVII, but you will need pictures of them as well ,to see the differences in fitting out ,and colours etc.  Geo.
