Have you finished now? I note there are no entries after May 2012.
Yes Nordlys, the Cruise-O Matic is now finished and up and running, regularly !
... In fact to end the build log I'm just waiting for my nephew to come out with me, with his video camera, in order to get a decent video of it on our club lake to put on here, which hopefully will now be quite soon if only this rain would stop..
It really is a great little craft, loads of fun and yes, on 9.6v it's what one might call ... a little frisky ! .... In fact the powers that be in our club have relegated me to the half hour on Sunday's on the lake when fast boats only are allowed on the water, so as not to put the others in jeopardy !
Which can't be bad for what is basically an old design in wood and a small one to boot. .. Wallace would be proud !
Two Sea Scouts from the original kit issue ! .. Wow lucky chap !
Do do a log on here when you do the new refurb, I'd love to see that and have you any photos of them at the moment ?? .. Les Rowell designed some great boats and the more on the water the merrier as far as I'm concerned, especially the originals. Back in those days I was a young chap who couldn't afford what I thought were the greatest kits going, I'm only pleased eventually to have done this one and am hoping to do another this year ... I've done a lot of scratch building over the years since then but these have a real place in my heart.
Great to hear from another Sea Scout owner !
