Ketch

Ketch; model by Jacob Roth… “I bought the Ketch in 1985 (my wife actually bought it for my birthday), when we were living in South Florida. It was one of the very first “Black Star” RC model yachts. It is polyester but very well built and rather heavy for its size. I often used to sail the ketch on the lake behind my house.

The beauty of this yacht is that it sails in all weather conditions, it is not as fast as some other yachts but keeps on going. One will always know when she is on the pond as when I use her engine it is rather noisy.”
