  • David,

    in your previous post you mentioned the German Delfin, how big is the small size, and how big is the large size?, it is a nice candidate to add to the fleet next to my V80, since both are experimental boats, and me like strange boats.
    Did you manage to open up the treasure box?

    • Man free,


      1/6 and 1/16th, if I’m not mistaken! The little guy fits in your hand and will be the perfect boat for us bubbleheads with smaller pools to get our fix between outings to the pond.

            • Manfred,
              The 1/6 version is 36” x 7”. A great size with plenty of room.

                • Thanks Darrin,

                  Since i'm a metric lunatic, this will translate itself into 900 mm long and a max beam of 175 mm, like you mentioned, plenty room to play, first step in the proces will be, searching the web for info and see what i can find conceirning pictures and drawings.
                  First finish the type A and the type 17b.

                  Manfred.
