As you can see from my sites, I am heavily into radio controlled boats. I am married to a Japanese woman (whose name is Maiko), and I love to travel! I welcome comments and questions from all corners of the world!

***NEWS UPDATED 12-7-06***
Welcome to the homepage of the International Yamato Owners Assosciation. This homepage is dedicated solely to the communication and expression of radio-controlled models of the Yamato-class battleships. I created this page to celebrate the construction of my own radio-controlled model of the IJN MUSASHI, during her 2006 construction. It quickly evolved into a wider role, with a mission to collect all R/C Yamatos into one definative website.

What I have attempted to do here is create an online center for information about the radio-controlled Yamatos sailing around the world today, and whenever possible, to credit the individual modelers who created them. Below you will find a navigation bar taking you to pages devoted to each known R/C Yamato as well as a World Locator Map, showing where in the world Yamatos are known to be sailing. You will also find a links page with links to relevant sites spanning Yamato, battleship, and all radio-controlled scale boat interests.

Please take your time to look around the site. Email me with comments or questions. If you know of a R/C Yamato which is NOT featured on this site, PLEASE let me know and I would be happy to add it to the online family of Yamatos.

As models of the most intimidating warship ever built, radio-controlled Yamatos are special among R/C boats. They deserve to have a special place on the internet.

    Phil Mickelson is experimenting with Callaway's FT-I, and Annika Sorenstam, who plays Callaway clubs on the LPGA tour, is testing it too, but she's reserving judgment until she hits it a few more times. Titleist Nike and Callaway believe the square technology is the best way to take advantage of U. But as Daly approaches his 41st birthday, he's determined to respond to his latest year of turbulence with an updated chapter to a career that began with a stunning, storybook triumph at the 1991 PGA Championship. The sponsor exemptions have been going great.

    i have been building on and off now for 3 years Yamato at a scale of 1:96 - just over 9 foot long
    I have completed the glassfiber hull and the prop shafts and am currently installing the motor gear,batteries, etc and making the balast weights aprox 45kg in total so they can be removable but not so while sailing.
