Frank Smart’s Half Model Project

Frank Smart, previous owner of the 1970 MK-I Sloop BRANDELARA II, has been building a half-model of the boat.  He recently shared some photos of this project with us, one of which is displayed below.  We hope that Frank will soon be finished with this project, and will share the results with us.  Frank’s attention to detail and accuracy are extremely noteworthy!

Frank recently wrote (July 9, 2008): “Thought I'd give you an update on the progress of the Brandelara II half hull project.    I'd put it aside for quite a while as other projects got priority.     I still have some finishing to do on the hull .... clean up the cove stripe for one, attach the rudder, make up decals for the name etc ...  then get it off my working back-board and onto a better one.  Anyway, here are a few shots of where it's at.    I'm really pleased with it as it really reminds me of our old boat.  When I get it finalized,  I'll send you some better pictures and maybe the members will be interested in seeing them.  Cheers, Frank Smart”.
