Freebooter Spec's
LOA 45 inches,  Total Height 44 " (keel to main truck), Hull 34" Draught 9", Beam 9"
Control 4 Channel HiTec 40 meg (ie; 1 Rudder 2 Square sails, 3 Fore & Aft sails, 4 Guns)
===
All sails can be reefed using jack-line reefing or furled for Foul weather sailing (max Force 5/6 when fully reefed down,, the photos show her in a force 4 to 5)
  5 of the guns can fired, ( the 18 pounder "chase Gun" or 4 of the 18 pounder carronades)
I know the next question I will be ask is how do you fire the guns.. the answer is simple ...you set sail for your local friendly Tesco's and secure a bag of party poppers (£2.00 for bag of 50) then return to your home port !) dismember one of the poppers and remove the firework (( Should I mention here that I take no responsibility for blown off fingers etc; Use common sense and don't pull the string???) Drill a small hole (1.5mm) in the breach of the gun and feed the string through the hole from the inside ...attach the string to a suitably mounted survo ..and bang away ... for added smoke add a little talc
