Fantasy Boats:

My boat designs are “Fantasy Boats”. I want them to LOOK like REAL boats, GOOD boats, SIMPLE boats, the way boats looked years ago, “Vintage” some might say. They portray boats that might have been, or might one day come to be. I also want models that sail in a realistic manner. No “submarining” on a downwind run, or decks awash and booms dragging in the water while on a beam reach in fair weather. No failures to come about, or unwanted rounding up, out of control, in a moderate breeze. These designs stray from being truly “scale” because they include distortions and compromises which are necessary for the model to sail well.  The physical laws of mechanical similitude, the “square-cube thing”, come into play.
And that folks, is why my boat designs are the way they are….Cheers, Gary     

We made a TOPSAIL for Emma. Check out how to do it on your Emma, or other RC sailboat by clicking on this video:

​A traditionally inspired R.C. sailboat for Bear, This stoutly built sailing vessel is stiff enough to hold up to a bear size gale, enabling her to venture far from the protected waters of the local pond, and out into the bay, or even ocean, for long range sailing in open water. Designed by Gary Webb, the renowned full size ocean cruising boat builder, this vessel is worthy of the Bearospace name.   Performance is as always, by design.  A lot more engineering, calculations, and experience have gone into "IRENE" than most other R.C. Sailboats!  Built from inexpensive materials such as doorskin plwood, and epoxy, all but a few parts are available at the local hardware store. This keeps costs at a minimum, and build time in days or weeks, not months or years like some boat models.
An optional sail plan with a gaff main sail is included with the “Irene” plan set. 
Also included are patterns for a skiff and a dory, either of which might serve as a dinghy for “Irene”.

A semi-scale portrayal of a sprit-rigged cruising sloop from the mid 20th century, designed for RC sailing.
