    Dave Mainwaring's Model Boat Zone!

    I sailed my first model sailboat tethered by a string off the floats at the Wollaston Yacht Club, Quincy,MA, in grade school. Then I built model airplanes. For several years I built U-Control planes and free flight sail-planes. In junior high school I started sailing/racing real boats and my model airplane building stopped. I served a tour of duty in the U.S. Coast Guard. Later, after college, my hobbies involved building fiberglass dinghies and molding fiberglass Friendship Sloop models.
