Marblehead "Sputnik"

Here is a pic of my Marblehead H.B.Tucker yacht called Sputnik, built by my Granddad. Can you give me any information especially value etc.


Comments on the Sputnik

From Russell Potts:

Clearly one of Tucker's Quackie series, hard to say which one, because none were published and they were all very similar. The varnished terylene sails suggest a date between 1952 and 62, or a very little later. Is there a vane gear to go with it? Is there a sail number? If so, ask Graham Reeves to look it up in the Register. Value depends on condition, and on how badly your potential buyer wants it. This one looks to be in fairly good nick in the photo, so possibly £4-500? RP

Not a Tucker design I recognise, more of a Daniels than a Tucker Not a duck. I think she is a Daniels Mosquito out of the Danilels and Tucker book Model Sailing Yachts 1951
