there is (or there was) quite a history on here about the boat. Try searching for "gwen eagle"
its a 1/12th scale, of a 40 ft motor cruiser. my dad built it 50 years ago but never got the internals done. I finally got it in the water 5 years ago. Brought it to Cyprus with me 4 years ago, and have had horrendous problems ever since. Its made of mahogany strip planking, and the summer heat here opens the planking cracks. I've just fibreglassed inside and out, and fitted new shorter prop shafts.
the blue paint is not good, but at this stage i just want to get in through our august temps (40c most years, went to 45c 2 years ago).
If it gets through this summer without cracking, i shall repaint to a better standard.
