Sleek 1920's bermudan-rigged 30 inch pond yacht with balanced main sail steering gear and lead keel. The sails are copies of the originals and the model sits on a newly made stand using old timber.

A main sheet steering mechanism uses balance gear, in which the boom is connected with the tiller in such a manner that, when it swings out with a pressure of wind, the rudder is automatically pulled round sufficiently to keep the yacht in its course. This will usually involve some sort of return spring (typically an elastic band) so that the mechanism is responsive to the wind.

Dimensions: 80 cm/31½ inches (max length) x 110.5 cm/43½ inches (height on stand) x 15 cm/5⅞ inches (max width)
