I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season. Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells. We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F. But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.

A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather. And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall! On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.

Hello Mr. Brown,
my name is Bert Elbel, I live in Solingen/Germany, and as a yachtmodel builder this time I´m looking for drawings and photos of the motoryacht HINCKLEY Talaria 48 Fly. While searching the internet I came across your homepage with your beautiful photos of the Talaria “SIMPY BEAUTY”.
I have already sent a mail to the Hinckley Shipyard, and also a mail to the European broker/dealer Vortecmarine in South England, but unfortunately I did not receive a reply from anyone. Unfortunately Hinckley Yachts are very rare in Europe, which is why I was very happy about the home marina “Amsterdam” on the boat you photographed. A trip to Amsterdam in the Netherlands, for me only 2 hours, in order to be able to take some detail photos with the consent of the owner, would be the greatest for a model builder to be able to build up a detailed model.
For your information: The HINCKLEY Talaria 48 Fly will be build as radio controlled model in scale 1:10, and is equipped with modern technology like brushless motors, lipo accus and much lights etc. Everething of course can be controlled from the transmitter!
My question to you is, do you know if is the photographed yacht really in Amsterdam, maybe even today, or do you know the owner, to get a contact perhaps? It would be very delighted to receive a short anser from yours.
With my best regards from Germany, and please stay healthy,
Bert Elbel, first Chairmen of the I.G. Yacht-Modellbau (I.G. for Interests Community)
