Full Description

The Pilot Boat was designed very similarly to Richard Webb’s earlier Fireboat but this time he made the Vee hull progressive with a shallow Vee at the stern rising gradually as it comes forward. This makes assembling the hull panels much easier. The panels will not require any manipulating, they just need the masking tape applied at the rear end and working forward. This type of hull will not be faster than the fireboat but the steering is much better and turns can be taken at full speed. Read more in the article which is included with the Plan or the Short Kit.

Sarik offers the Laser Cut Wood Pack for this model and a clip can be viewed below which explains what is included and involved. The original plan model was built from 1.5 mm styrene sheet (this can be purchased from Sarik Hobbies) BUT this plan is a re-design using plywood.

What’s in a Short Kit?

A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
