 Hi Richard,

just a quickie,

Did you use the mock planked deck (in the kit) or did you plank it yourself on your build?

How is the Tramper comming on?

Cheers

Dale

Hi Richard,

Looking at your posts lately, it would appear that you are getting into mass production with your boats! Have you ordered the articulated lorry yet, to get them all down to the lake?
You're doing a great job my friend, well done, and keep up the photos and reports for us lesser mortals!

Maiden voyage today.

Apart from the two 6v SLA batteries I added extra lead in the stern section and she sails really well.

She looks really good on the water Richard, well done! :-))

I was down at our lake near Yeovil today, wasn't it beautiful boating weather? Great to be out in the fresh air again, with no ice on the water!!!

Who do you think trained him ....  {-)

Anyway, on closer inspection I see that your lovely Milford Star should be renamed Milford Ark  {-)
Is that a CAT draped across the anchor winch  :o :o

Hi Dan

The trawl doors came with the kit.

You will have to bear with me for the sizes as I am laid up at the moment with cellulitis in my legs. I will get them for you as soon as pos.
