You will need to be good with your hands and have a small workshop with the necessary tools. Its best to buy the tools as you go along to avoid unnecessary expenditure. You may decide to buy a prefabricated hull and sails or alternatively you may opt to make everything yourself. Whatever you decide your starting point is a scale drawing with enough detail to get you started. If you are really ambitious you could even create your own design. Beware of scaling down the plans of a full size boat unless you are an expert mathematician because the relationship is not direct.
This fascinating hobby is enjoyed by people of all ages around the world. Model boat building is almost as old as recorded history and examples dating back to Phoenician and Ancient Egyptian times may be found in museums. Although model sailboats were originally made for ceremonial or religious purposes early examples have also been found that appear to have been made just for fun. For many years scale boat models were also used in boatyards instead of drawings to explain what was required to craftsmen who did not know how to read drawings. Radio (RC) controlled model sailboat building has become a popular hobby throughout the world thanks to greater disposable income and increased leisure time. Modern technology has made it possible for anybody with funds and access to open water to own and operate a remote controlled sailboat that looks and behaves like the real thing.
While most people tend to think of sailboats as all being the same there are actually a variety of different types of sailboats in use throughout the world today. The basics still apply to them as far as sails and using the wind to power them through the water but the features that make them unique offer a variety of different benefits to people depending on their personal preferences. Many people wrongly assume that the size of the sailboat is the defining characteristic that separates it from other sailboats on the water. While different size sailboat will certainly have different features and provide its passengers with an array of different comforts its not the size that really matters. The most common differences between sailboats have to do with the number and the position of masts that each ship has though in recent years that is no longer the only distinction.
Sailboat cruising versus sailboat racing... the skill set required is vastly different To be a successful sailboat racer requires quickness agility and strength in order to attain the maximum sailboat speed. If you look at a team photo of a crew entered in the Americas Cup for example... you will see very young and very fit men and women. The exception is the Captain and the tactician... these two men or women are on board for their experience... knowledge of race tactics and ability to make the boat go as fast as possible. The sailboat cruiser on the other hand can be any age any body type and know very little about sailboat racing.
