    This article was first published in the May 1978 issue of Model Boats magazine.

    The article was written by Colin Gross, and details his build of the DSRV "Ross Winans". I found it a very interesting read, and I hope you guys do as well.

    I've managed to contact Colin Gross, the builder of the "Ross Winans", he very kindly sent me some more pictures of his boat to post up on the forum

    (I think I may also upload these to the website)

    It really was a superb boat...enjoy the pictures, guys.
