October 2012: Peter Henderson (UK) sends us this link to information about the "1299" model Footy: http://www.beam.to/bmyc. Click on "Footy Plans" to see a comprehensive PDF including detailed assembly instructions and purchasing info for their pre-molded hull. Well worth a look, even if you don't plan to build this particular boat.

As of August 2012 Andrew Cook has updated the GoSpectre.com website for his "Footy 507". It features a molded hull with built in servo mountings, carbon fiber rig, kevlar/carbon fibre matrix sails, servo arms and waterproof switch. Our Gallery has some older pictures here.
