This are working sailboats, usually I make them to keep the tradition from my hometown (coastal fishing town) where fisherman will give a sailboat (working carved model) of the the father’s sloop to the kid at birth. Certainly this one don’t meet all the requirements but make a great gift for a new born.

I wonder how a new born would react to this. Is it to become a sailor or do the woodworking? lol

Great looking pond racer. And also a grand tradition. Spoil that boy, he won’t be little very long.

Another boat…. It’s a good day.

Nice work and the prettiest single mast rig there is, the gaff sloop. I have the full size model.

I like this one very much.

Nice looking boat. Are these RC? If not, how do you sail them across a pond?

The first time I saw Pond racers was while statinoned in Wales near Haverford West in the 1990s. They had some amazing boats, many looking like tall ships. These are very nice. I need some pointers.
