Victoria Class On-line Shopping Catalogue
revision August 8, 2016

Sorry, Retirement starts August 9th, 2016

Proceeds support the OMSA web site and the step-by-step Victoria construction guide.

 The Okanagan Model Sailboat Association has concentrated on the very affordable "Victoria" sailboat kit that is manufactured in Taiwan by Thunder Tiger. There are many good places to buy it on-line, and your local hobby shop likely keeps them in stock or would be able to order one for you. The kit provides the basic sail boat, and to greatly increase the reliablility and performance of your Victoria sailboat, you can add the LONGBOW fittings and racing sails as described on this web site.................................... Have a great time with your new Victoria racing yacht..

LONGBOW Victoria aluminum pre-built mast and boom kit

 

 

The LONGBOW pre-built mast and boom kit is designed to replace the very heavy mast and booms
that come with the Victoria kit and is made of 7075 aluminum alloy throughout
and is compatible with the stock Victoria goose-neck and mast-head crane fittings.



The LONGBOW pre-built mast and boom kit is comprised of five main components:
the three piece mast and the two sail booms, all manufactured from
thin-wall 7075 aluminum alloy in 'black' and 'platinum' finish.

The base of the mast includes the lock for the LONGBOW custom mast step
and is pre-drilled and aligned to accept the two upper mast sections.

Both main and jib booms are predrilled for the sail, sheets and boom-vang attachment points,
and the out-haul guides are pre-installed at the ends of the booms.

The total weight of the LONGBOW mast, main and jib booms is only 1.8 ounces (52 grams)

The mast kit also includes the 3/32" aluminum pop-rivets for instant assembly.

A precision brass four-position mast-step designed for the
