Mr zippy, I cut a 12mm bar into sections (all VERY carefully planned) then fed bearings and the sprocket onto the bar before welding it together. Then I made wooden sandwich pedals and lined them with grease. I know that I am unable to change anything without sawing the bar but I thought that the number of hours it will be pedalling in a lifetime will not be enough to destroy the bearings if I keep them oiled.

Hi Ray, yes Its been in the sea five times. The last time we were out for about an hour and a half.
I hook the trailer on the back of my bike to get it to the water. I really enjoy pedalling it around the bay. U2

Hello,
From memory ,I served on Exeter and Cardiff, there were a few rings of a vertical ladder to get up to that deck, there was never much up there as the deck in bolts to get the engines out.
Regards
Paul

Thank you sir, that makes good sense.  Lots to learn and know when going RC.  Dennis

Well, we'll keep searching for the definitive answer but I've almost convinced myself there will be a short stairwell between the two. Maybe 5 or 6 steps angled to suit  {:-{

Well, that looks like it could be fun to use - perhaps the operators of Swan/Duck pedalos could follow your example.
Could also be used  as a rescue boat for recovery of broken down models.
Has she been in the water yet?


Regards,
Ray.

Oh and it's pedal powered so no smelly exhaust fumes

Well it's not quite a model but it's not much bigger.... Here's what I've been busy with. Amongst other things.

Thanks for the latest suggestions. Been away for a few days riding steam trains so kind of forgot about the thread!
