Milbro ‘Ailsa’ Pond Yacht

This rather nice model was sent into the boatyard for a tidy up, new sails & a bowsprit.  It was to be a restoration of a model prized by her husband from his youth & a surprise for him.

The stand however, rather dominated the model & detracted from her fine lines.

Final word to the owner:

‘What a fantastic job you have done. Thank you so much for all your efforts. It made my husband quite emotional seeing it all titivated and looking as new again as it reminded him of the numerous hours at the local yachting pool as a child.

Best wishes, Julie.’

Classic Pond Yachts

Ailsa pond yachts.

On my last visit to Beale Park I found 3 Ailsa Pond Yachts, 1 x 18 inch and 2 X 21.5 inch long, one of the 21.5 inch models had a mast, sails and a stand, more Christmas presents !!

2021-10-20 19.01.11.jpg

Here are the 3 new models, they are in reasonable condition, I will put some varnish on the decks, they look a bit old, I think water will get under the varnish, the hulls look OK for old models, maybe give the keels a touch up.

2021-11-08 19.40.41.jpg

This is the 18 inch model, I removed the deck fittings, sanded the deck and applied two coats of gloss varnish, the keel needs the paint to be painted, there is some paint been applied and needs tidying. Then refit the deck gear, make the mast, booms and bowsprit, then the sails.

2021-11-08 19.46.23.jpg

Here are the two 21.5 inch, length over the deck, models. I think they are great, these boats sail really well, with some nice sails. Some more pictures below showing deck detail, also a nice stand on the boat with the rig, think I will make some more for the rest of the Ailsa models.

2021-11-08 19.44.54.jpg

19 Jan 23 - The small one of the 3 models finished, pictures below.

2021-12-06 15.03.16.jpg

This is the small one of the 3 models, I sanded and applied 3 coats of  gloss varnish, and made up and varnished a set of new spars.

2021-12-15 15.38.43.jpg

I made up a new set of sails out of Rip Stop spinnaker cloth. I am putting these models together for my grandchildren to use, they are from 2 years old to 12 years old, so the older ones want them to sail well which is why they have much more modern sail plans, these models sail really well with modern rigs.

2021-12-15 18.01.07.heic

A couple of pictures of the small model sailing, I will do some videos of her sailing when the weather gets better. These pictures of her sailing on the river Hamble.

2021-12-20 14.42.42.jpg

Work is progressing with the larger models, I will put some pictures on of work so far. One thing I have been thinking for some time is fitting a wind vane system to the two larger ones. I have come up with a way that hopefully works, without hurting the model, in truth its one hole that can be altered back if it does not work, or you want to go back to original. The point of these models was always for kids to sail, and hopefully learn from. We now live in different times and personally  I don't have a problem with updating them so they sail better, but I do try to keep them looking like Ailsa's. But this may be too much for some, these boats will be sailing at some VMYG meetings.

22 Jan 22 - As I said above I have had an idea in my mind about fitting a self steering wind vane to some of the models. This comes from a couple of models I built in the 1980s for my two sons, they  were 300mm long, hade swing rigs on them and I fitted self steering systems made from Lego. We used to take them sailing on our 'Scampi 25' 1/4 ton yacht, they sat in netting over the kids bunks in the fwd cabin, they sailed beautifully, the boys spent ages chasing them in the tender. So Lego !!

2022-12-28 16.50.13.jpg

Pictures of the Lego coming to shape, gearing still not decided, but a couple of options here. Also first idea for a rudder, Ailsa's don't have a rudder, so this system needs a rudder.

2022-12-30 11.36.51.jpg

I cut out a balsa feather for the win vane, made a shaft to hold the feather out of 2mm stainless, bent it to shaft and epoxied it into the plastic , to fit it to the Lego  shaft I drilled a hole in the Lego shaft and pressed in the stainless.

2022-12-30 11.11.38.jpg

Once you start, Lego gets to you, here it is used to hold feather while epoxy kicks!!

2022-12-30 11.14.16.jpg

Here is the first trial assembly, I glassed  over the epoxy to make the feather stronger. I began to think this will work so I fitted a single deck fitting to locate the system, and make it removable.

2022-12-30 16.30.31.jpg

There were things I did not like, with the old boats the boys had to reset the angle of the vane to sail on a different tack, I did not want that on this boat, more Lego!

2022-12-30 13.08.56.jpg

First and second ideas, not pretty, how to fit the vane ? 

2023-01-14 12.02.44.jpg

Fun playing with Lego again, but who wants this on the back of the boat, no one, also notice the rubber has changed to carbon, I had an old Helicopter  blade, the balsa was to thick, by the time it was shaped it was to weak, I machined down a carbon rod to fit in the Lego, drilled a hole into the new carbon rudder blade, and filed out a Lego gear to fit the shaft, It then occurred  to me that rather than make the stainless feather shaft be pressed into the Lego shaft, I should open up the hole so the feather rotates in the shaft. Then make up a thin ply web frame to take a couple of control lines, more thinking.

2022-12-30 16.28.22.jpg

Here is the final system, still work to do. The two control lines go to a slider on a stainless pin going forward, this also acts a balance weight, here the system has a couple of bowsies  fitted, but the adjustment is the slider on the stainless pin, the final system will not have any bowsies.

2023-01-04 18.06.39.jpg

When the boat tacks the system goes from STBD tack above to PORT tack below  automatically, the same as a modern system. So now just finishing to do, Loctite the Lego bits together, paint the feather, make the sails and rig the boat.

2023-01-04 18.06.06.jpg

We recently were given an old TP52 spinnaker ay work, the idea being to use it to cover boats in our workshop, it is made out of super thin lightweight cloth, see below, I think it was called Cuban  Fiber, very popular at the time, and very expensive.

2023-01-22 13.00.52.jpg

I have tried various different types of sail material, as you will see on the toy boats page, most have worked OK, the modern materials that look like the old Egyptian Cotton  materials don't  last 5 mins, once wet they are a waste of time. So I am always interested in different  materials, especialy when its free, lets see how this goes.

2023-01-08 09.03.57.jpg

I measured out the new rig and made some card templates ready to cut out new sails. Above just checking sizes. Below laid out on bench.

2023-01-21 17.39.07.jpg

The material has a slightly rumpled finish, I got my wife to have a go it ironing them, it helped but I will try harder for the next suit. Here sails laid on templates.

2023-01-21 17.39.30.jpg

Sails ready for finishing, heat up small rods to melt for halyards and sheets. Since this picture taken the boat was rigged today and when tried outside the rumples not a problem at all, sails look really nice, and fast!

2023-01-21 17.38.11.jpg

Mainsail head swivel, it rotates in the top of the mast.

2023-01-22 12.37.30.jpg

Sails offered up to boat, all I can say is they are not as bad as they look here !!

2023-01-22 12.38.15.jpg

A couple of pictures taken earlier today, 22 Jan, outside, I am hoping to get some pictures of her sailing on Tuesday, weather permitting.

2023-01-22 14.47.47.jpg

A picture of the new deck layout below.

2023-01-22 19.58.37.jpg

The main and jib sheets operate through a single slider, you can alter the main and jib sheet by sliding on the main and jib booms. Vane now red, control lines still to be fitted.

2023-01-22 19.58.48.jpg

Took her out on a sea trial on the River Hamble yesterday, very light winds  and a fair bit of tide, but she sailed very well, see link below for 'Classic pond yachts' you tube site and a video, will get more when we get some wind, and sunshine!

10 April 23 - Took the Ailsa out for a sail a couple of days ago, she sailed really well the self steering system and the rig and sails all worked really well in a stronger breeze. 

ailsa model yachts

Really impressed with how well she sailed, there was enough breeze to heel her over, and waves, she was brilliant!!

ailsa model yachts

I would have struggled  to steer her down wind any better, very impressive. Want to try her over at Gosport to see if the break back system works, I am hoping that with the adjuster lines are eased, we can just tack her on the bank without adjusting anything.

Here is a good view of the vane, rudder and assembly. The whole thing can be removed by lifting the Lego part that fits into the deck.

2023-01-22 19.35.25.jpg

This picture shows'  the quadrant glued to the bottom of the vane. The piece of stainless rod is partly a balance  arm, but the important  thing is the plastic bowsey with a tight fit which slides along its length, there are two holes for two lines which will go to the vane quadrant.

Here is a view from above showing how it works, the lines are not fitted yet, but in this position the Stbd side line would be tight and allow the vane to steer the boat on port tack, if the boat tacks the vane with go over until the Port line goes tight, and she will sail on Stbd tack. Thats the plan anyway!!

2023-01-22 19.35.09.jpg

Here is the system removed, it does have the control lines fitted. Initial trials have been very good, the videos above show that, yet to try the tacking system. Its just to hard to do on my own in a launch with a camera!!

Late Victorian 25 inch Lowestoft Beam Trawler.​

"No price can be put on those dreams and aspersions of the mind, when she touches the water and with a little shove, those sails fill, and she heels over to track across the pond. From my first Birkenhead Star Yacht  “Southern Star,” the feeling was just the same as when I launched my newly restored classic yacht “Moon Song”. The only difference other than having to run around the pond to catch it, was that I was now fully part of that journey, that first push, that seed planted in my mind that had brought me to this point. So when you see an old pond yacht, don’t see it as a dated toy yacht or an artistic novelty! It is a carriage from which dreams are born!"

Terms & Conditions

INFORMATION FOR BUYERS

1. Introduction: The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed ‘Conditions of sale’ which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand.

2. Agency: As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller.

3. Estimates: Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the buyer’s premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive.

4. Buyer's premium: The ‘Conditions of sale’ oblige buyers to pay a buyer's premium at 15% (plus VAT) on the hammer price of each lot purchased.

5. VAT: (*) indicates that VAT is payable by the purchaser at the standard rate (presently 20%) on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer's premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The double symbol (**) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (presently 5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer's premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers' Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the premium is not recoverable as input tax.

6. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the ‘Conditions of sale’. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order.  However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are 'deliberate forgeries' may be returned and repayment made. There is a three week time limit. (The expression 'deliberate forgery' is defined in our ‘Conditions of sale’).

7. Electrical goods: These are sold as 'antiques' only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first.

8. Export of goods: Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing goods of that character because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Ask us if you need help.

9. Bidding: Bidders may be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification may be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding.

10. Commission bidding: Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers' premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any)and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax.

11. Methods of payment: As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash). Payments by credit card are subject to a surcharge of 2% plus VAT, but not those by debit card. Our preferred method of payment is debit card. Telephone bidders must pay either by bank transfer prior to collection of lots or by credit/debit card, cheque or cash in person prior to collection of goods.

12. Collection and storage: Please note what the ‘Conditions of sale’ state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges.

13. Online Bidding: Killens (trading as the Mendip Auction Rooms) offer an online bidding service via the-saleroom.com for bidders who cannot attend the sale. In completing the bidder registration on www.the-saleroom.com and providing your credit card details and unless alternative arrangements are agreed with Killens you: (1) authorise Killens trading as the Mendip Auction Rooms, if they so wish, to charge the credit card given in part or full payment, including all charges, for items successfully purchased in the auction via the-saleroom.com, and (2) confirm that you are authorised to provide these credit card details to us through www.the-saleroom.com and agree that Killens trading as the Mendip Auction Rooms are entitled to ship the goods to the card holder name and card holder address provided in fulfilment of the sale. Please note that any lots purchased via the-saleroom.com live auction service will be subject to an additional 3% charge plus VAT at the rate imposed on the hammer price.

8. Remedies for non-payment or failure to collect purchases: (1) If any lot is not paid for in full and taken away in accordance with these conditions or if there is any other breach of these conditions, we, as agent for the seller and on our own behalf, shall at our absolute discretion and without prejudice to any other rights we may have, be entitled to exercise one or more of the following rights and remedies: (a) To proceed against you for damages for breach of contract (b) To rescind the sale of that lot and/or any other lots sold by us to you (c) To resell the lot (by auction or private treaty) in which case you shall be responsible for any resulting deficiency in the total amount due (after crediting any part payment and adding any resale costs).

15.          Forgeries: Notwithstanding the preceding condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects.If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer's premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these ‘Conditions of sale’.

Pond Yacht Antiques

Pond Yacht Antiques

This pond yacht was made in Largs in Scotland in the years between the wars. Largs was the home of the Turner family who for many years produced the Ailsa range of yachts.

This particular yacht is unusual because of her size. The majority of Ailsa production was between 14 and 20 inches. At 24 inches plus bowsprit she is much rarer.

She was made in the early 1930's and carved from a solid pitch pine with a separate deck. All the deck fittings are original and there is a delightful faux cabin top just aft of the mast.

She has the usual metal keel. She has her original varnished finish. She has been sailed so there are some marks but overall she is in remarkable condition for her age.

The sails are in really good order with just a few rust stains. There are no holes or tears. The sails are made of the striped material so indicative of that era.

The boom may have been replaced at some point but the other spars and hooks are original. The rigging and bowsies have been renewed.   

She is a very decorative and collectable yacht.

The stand is not as old as the yacht but sets the yacht very well. It is included in the sale if required.

Breaking news, slash’s stepdaughter lucy-bleu knight’s mom reacts to her death: ‘i’m so sorry’.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Slash’s late stepdaughter Lucy-Bleu Knight’s loved ones are in mourning.

After Knight died at the age of 25 on Friday , her mom, Meegan Hodges, broke her silence on the tragedy.

Hodges commented on Knight’s cryptic Instagram that was posted two days after her passing.

“MY BABY GIRL 🕊️🤍 I LOVE YOU WITH EVERYTHING. I’M SO SORRY,” Hodges wrote.

Hodges shared her late daughter with her ex, Mark Knight. She first dated Slash, 59, in 1989 before rekindling their relationship in 2015.

The comment Lucy-Bleu Knight's mom left on her final Instagram post.

Knight was born on December 6, 1998. She died on July 19.

The Post confirmed Tuesday that Knight’s autopsy was completed . Her cause of death is deferred as additional testing takes place.

Slash announced his stepdaughter’s death on Instagram on Sunday.

He called her “an incredibly talented artist, a passionate dreamer, and a charming, lovable, sweet soul.”

The  Guns N’ Roses guitarist  also asked for “privacy” and that “social media speculation be kept to a minimum” so the family could “grieve and process this devastating loss.”

The selfie of Knight, shared on her Instagram account two days after her death, came with a haunting caption.

“Whether I made you feel excluded, manipulated/ controlled you, told you to quit your day job from the comfort of being financially supported by my parents, or drowned real issues in toxic positivity – I am sorry,” the message read.

It continued, “Countless missed opportunities and connections due to a disgustingly big ego, insecure heart and fear of being vulnerable. May my soul learn to evolve from my poor job at being Lucy-Bleu.”

In the photo, Knight stared away from the camera with a serious look on her face. She was wearing a pair of glasses and two necklaces.

The post was flooded with comments, in addition to the one from Knight’s mom, with reactions to her tragic death.

“A sad note scheduled just hours before death, doesn’t that feel suspicious,” one person wrote.

“I can’t believe you can schedule a post. This has to be so shocking and hard for her loved ones. I’m so sorry to all who adored her. This sucks,” another user said.

A third comment read, “Really sad to read this even for someone that didn’t know her. Got a feeling reading these comments she was harder on herself than she needed to be and well loved.”

Slash  canceled four upcoming dates  of his solo S.E.R.P.E.N.T tour before disclosing his stepdaughter’s death.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the S.E.R.P.E.N.T tour regrettably has to cancel the below performances. Refunds will be available at points of purchase,” the announcement read.

Slash shares two children — sons London, 21, and Cash, 20 — with his ex-wife, Perla Ferrar. The former couple were married from 2001 to 2014.
