I was  reminded of your build today, was watching Yesterday channel about convoys and UBoats etc, when they showed some pics of the Ohio going into Malta, What a mess the bow was at the waterline, the stem bar was there but most of the bow going back about 20ft was missing. Still hoping to see it on canoe lake sometime.

It will be on the water next year.
The bow damage you talk of was probably Brisbane Star, as opposed to Ohio. I have found photos of both, including a fore shortened Brisbane Star following her temporary repairs. Ohio still suffered bow damage as shown in the famous photo with her tied to the two destroyers.

This is true, however it is always at the same time each year. This is not fair and doesn't give me  a chance.
Now back to the Type 45 paint job, followed by my secretarial duties at tonights meeting of the Guild of Village Idiots, then blue robot dogs over the weekend, and then back to work...maybe I can get August shifted to the autumn next year {-)

As was once said by the once great Daily Mirror, 'There are lies, damned lies, and Sun exclusives.' Not sure where the canal event falls!
With me its more like there are promises, guarantees, and what actually happens!
It will hit the water this year, thats a promise.....

The only way Ohio could sink is if someone sat on her in the water, when fully ballasted down...thats the plan anyway :D

theres nothing wrong with sailing a part completed model along the canal , i was once told it doesnt matter if its a plank of wood with a motor attatched it still qualifies as a boat ! !  kevs coster isnt fully finished , yet we still use her .

The only way the Ohio could sink would be if it was put on the "WATER"

I shall be working on the stern section, installing the RC equipment in the not too distant future. If this reaches a working state before the Canal Run on Easter Sunday, it will be getting its bottom wet for the SECOND time! Admittedly, the first time was in a giant bath :}
