Folks, I see CLC is offering a new class to build a radio control boat at one of their boatbuilding schools. (check it out in the boatbuilding classes link here) It's a 4-foot long boat called the Independence and looks like a lot of fun to build and toy around with. Problem is I don't want to build it at an expensive school and would prefer to purchase the kit myself. CLC says it will be offering it after the first of the year, but that could mean six or months down the road and I have to have it NOW for my instant gratification issues. I'd really like to build the CLC version, (Perhaps John could offer a date it will be available?) But if anyone has an alternative boat of similar construction and capabilities, I'd like to hear from you. I've tried the Internet and can't seem to come up with much of what I'm looking for, ie., I don't want a molded hull, I want to build it myself, stitch and glue style, etc. John, please hurry and get this thing to the market, or I shall have no alternative but to look elsewhere sadly enough. Happy holidays all. Best, Bob H.
