Title: Fishing - for real!

This is certainly worth visiting.
Markku Lankinen is the name of this self-made inventor.
Make sure to see the other about five videos Youtube search word "Markku Lankinen"

I met him at the Helsinki ModelExpo today. His latest vessel is a little miracle. One of his videos shows her maiden voyage on a Finnish lake that is just loosing its ice cover.

I try to make a little report on the new fishing boat under "Working vessels". It's got three radios; one onboard, operated by an array of servos. Apparently, he had not heard of telemetry. It didn't prevent him from creating telemetry of sorts of his own.

Martin Holst from Denmark builds large model trawlers with working winches / net drums and fully scale working trawl gear


His pelagic trawler models even have internal tanks which he pumps water into to simulate the trawlers being full of fish
