Some sites/links/people that I
have personally found to be very informative and helpful since I took up this
hobby/sport some ten or so years ago.
These folks continue
to provide the same faultless, excellent, and prompt, service that I had
become used to, when I dealt with Shirley and Malcom Kampe!
And their website is excellent! Highly recommended!

There are some awesome pictures of EC12's in full flight on this
Fantastic service from Rhonda and Adrian
These folks offer an exceptional range of fittings for all types of boating, and
if you are into scale boating, then this is the place to go.
They have also taken up the Micro Magic so support is growing for this little
yacht that is available in standard and racing versions.
Ask to be put on the mailing list for their recently launched Model Maritime
News newsletter for their latest information.
In my opinion, the Rolls
Royce of Sail Winches, and you can actually get to speak
to Rob himself. How good is that!
Absolutely top-notch service from Alec. From a cold
call enquiry for a custom set of sails to delivery to my front door in just 9 days!
Some great tips on sail tuning as well!
I rate my recommendations highly
and consider them to be a reflection of my personal integrity. If you have an
issue that has not been resolved to your satisfaction, regarding any of the
above suppliers, please let me know. I will follow up on any outstanding issue
and report accordingly.
Builders of the A2 Class yacht - Australia II
Sadly, this boat is no longer being manufactured...
A credit to the sport in that they welcome
absolutely anybody who wants to sail, irrespective of size or style or type of
boat. (IC powered boats excluded)
All of the above organisations I
have had personal contact with and can highly recommend their services and or
products. And should you wish to contact me with any questions regarding the
above I will be only too happy to answer any queries you may have. The links
above have not been solicited. Funnily enough, if I get exceptional service then
I like to let others know. I know it's a radical departure from the accepted
practice of just complaining when it's bad but never saying anything if it's
good. Hey, but what the heck, let's go wild here!
Very useful resource for many different
classes of yachts. Very good supporting and construction links. An excellent

A source of plans for all sorts and types of model boats.
I purchased plans for Australia II from these folks. Instructions and photo's
were not included, contrary to information advised in the description, but the
large plans are excellent, except that all wording is in French! Another
omission from the description. The small plan is only a line drawing.
