a few pics of my model, there are 2 short videos of her on the Model Boat Mayhem Facebook page, which were taken with her running the standard Dumas prop, which gives the least performance of the variety of props that I have tried,

Hi Cowboy

Thanks for taking the time to comment, pleased you like the idea. I understand the frustration of not having quiet water nearby to sail as the lake I prefer to sail at 30 minutes away is seldom quiet but when it is my friend Bryon Calverley and I are launching at 7am to get a full hour of sailing
before the wind picks up. Photography is always better before the bright sun hits the models. A friend of mine in another province is an avid modeler and adopted the freelance designs but found himself in your situation with no fresh water close by. He solved that problem by loading up his camper van and visited a distant campground on a lake. His one week,  twice a year, sailing was not ideal but satisfied his craving and gave him lots of time to design and build. I understand the freelance concept and the jetties are for a select few but if you need any help in design I would be pleased to help.  You are probably a keen tug fan and that hull lends itself to a wide variety of supers and jetty arrangements.
Cheers and good luck in your search for quiet water.

My next super and jetty will be built and posted in mid May ( Superyacht on a 39in hull )

What a brilliant versatile Idea. I've been hoping to do something myself for the past few years but just can't get regular access to a decent bit of water to make it worthwhile. Your jetties are certainly good inspiration for when I can get round to it though, thanks for sharing.

100 (or thereabouts) little people turned up today!

They will need repainting but can't complain about the price. I won't need them all.

You make a case for the model, that keeps it well protected when transported. Even with a metal rudder, there's plenty of other fine details to break off of a model like that.

I have a 45in freelance research vessel ( AGOR ) in my fleet and as you have guessed there is a jetty arrangement to match the boat.
This is my interpretation of a Coast Guard jetty designed to launch a submersible deployed to test underwater sonar upgrades for the Navy fleet.

Old thread, but the scammers are still there with extra tricks.
A neighbour called me yesterday worried by a call from HMRC saying they were about to be prosecuted unless they coughed up 2000 rapidly.
She told me the number that they had been called from (good old 1471) and the "secure" number that they told her to ring them back on, which turns out to be the HMRC helpline number.  Bear in mind, yesterday was a bank holiday, so a staffed helpline is unlikely.
Technical stuff now - the 1471 number has a string of hits on watchdog style sites as malicious, usually with HMRC refunds involved and them wanting bank details.
Ringing an answer bureau pretty much by definition cannot reach a specific person directly, so thats a mental alarm bell.  How does the malicious caller direct the call?  They don't.  After they tell you to call them back "securely", they don't clear down, they just listen to you dialling, wait a few seconds, and "answer".  The unwary, now secure in the knowlege that they are talking to HMRC, hand over their worldly wealth.
So the answer to that one is to call the number, but to do it on a line that has dial tone, and actually listen for said tone.
