Hi All
Finally closed in the stern with the help of my magnets with handles!!!
A bit of sanding, fibreglass resin and spray putty/undercoat.
I have a lovely rear end (not mine)!!!

Hi Canabus,

Aha, I already wondered how you were going to get those supermagnets out of those confined spaces...
Handles, very clever!

Regards, Jan.

Hi Jan
I also added 10mm squares of plywood to the standard magnets to help stop them breaking when they drop onto hard floors.
I do not plan on testing this one out hopefully!!!

Hi All
Installed the aft deck and started planking with the outer planking in two pieces(forward and aft).
It was only because of the width and length of the free veneer a mate gave me.
I cut out the center pieces and the cockpit area(a bit extra in this area).
The outer sides I left about 5mm extra.
Very interesting cutting veneer and not breaking it!!
One of my mad ideas to test myself out!!!!

Hi Guys
After sanding the deck, I vanished with two coats that was OK.
A bit of light sanding between coats and added another coat.
Check it the next day and a lot of section on the bow the veneer had lifted !!!
The stern section is OK.
It's the outer veneer and it's all one piece, used the same glue.
Very disappointed!!!!

Hi Chaps
Totally stripped the deck planking off and started again.
Fingers and toes crossed with different wood glue this time.

Likewise, fingers crossed for you. What glue did you use first and what is the varnish? spirit or water based??

That's going to be one slick boat when all the varnishing is done  :-)) The lady in the cockpit seems impressed  :-)

Not bad. I like the variety of shades found in the planks and their symetry.

Nice  :-))

I salute all methods of hiding the funtional or disguising it  :-)) That is a cool idea.

Hi Chaps

Well out with the polish and clean up the boat.
All system installed and working.
A bit offset on the rudder and setup the ESC to my standard boat settings.
Only using the 3S 3700mah Lipo battery and a total suggest at the CG point.
The crew are a bit heavy at 100 grams each!!!

Weather is looking good, so it's gentleman start your engine !!!

Hi All
The had it's first run today with great success, the CG was 410mm from the bow and it sat in the water on the waterline.
A slow start with a quick check of the forward/ reverse and rudder controls.
As you all will see from the pics what a boat without spray rails is like!!!
Up on the plane at 1/3 throttle and turning nice on the rudder.
I got the offset spot on for once.
Stayed in the 1/3 to 1/2 throttle for the camera shots and then hit it up to full throttle.
Sat on the water beautifully, but, the turns had to be slower mainly because of no spray rails.
I am very happy with the performance, but, still have a few bits to add to finish to boat.
