Morning Tide 14' Model Sailing Boat

This is a 1:10 scale model of one of Selway Fisher's most popular designs - originally designed for Paul Fisher himself, she has been built all over the world in both plywood and Cedar strip plank.

She represents a true 'little ship' packing, as she does, an enormous amount into her 14 foot length. It is not until you see one full-size or build the model, that you realize just how much space she has. The model is for Balsa wood sheet construction but she could be made using ply.

The 2 sheets of plans are for a static model but notes and guidance are given to ballast her and set the rigging up for a radio controlled working model using the same control systems used on the 4m Mini Yacht.

Go to the Tideway 14 page in Selway Fisher Design site for details of the full-size boat. For those wanting to build the model as a starting point for building the full-size boat, you can purchase the model plans and study plans for the full-size boat, at a discounted price - go to the above link above to find out more.
