Not my little light spot was it? {-)
No it was found by going all over it with a small light. Bingo found the very small hole. Now i'm going to have to get some glue. I'm going to name the boat  "Epoxy".

Progress Report.
I managed to get enough water to run on last Sunday, However there was still areas which was covered in Ice / old rubbish which had been lobed on the ice.
After a gentle warm up lap she/ i was ready to be opened up.  Yes Martin it dose turn a little better at speed. The lake is still to small to keep it flat out for long as we have loads of thick ducks who just love to get in the way. Still I did manage to get it up to a point where i hit something in the water and over she flipped (Twice) Still now I know she floats when she is upside down. Hope to get some more runs in this Sunday.

Hi Martin / Phil
Yes she is going OK. The engine is just begin to loosen up after it's rebuild. I didn't get her out last Sunday as I didn't get in till 4 am the night before. (the joys of being a sound engineer) This did me a favorer as it went because I find a new model shop and he had a nearly new Futaba 2.4 RX for 45.00 Bargin at that price so I snapped it up. Anyway I wanted a RX to go in my springer tug. See springer tug section for pic's.
O well best get of so I can load the car. More sound engineering in London tonite.

Hi DE hi
Made it in one bit to Sydney down under.
Been having a look at a real 314 mph recorder breaker called " Spirit of Australia" Dose any one have any plans of her????? I have an idea to put a ducted aircraft fan unit in it as the drive system. The reel one has a jet unit fitted. No I can't afford a working model turbine.
Have fun be back on soon.

Ho ray!!! I have found some model boat hydros down under. Have taken a few photos but i can't unload them on this PC. If i get a chance I will post a pic latter this week. I meet these guys in a park just outside Melbourne. Loads of water and they don't seem to worry about how much nose they are making. They have some good looking fast elect and petrol boats out today. I wanted a go but I was to shy to ask????
I'm happy now i have had my fix. :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi one & all
Well I have found the Adelaide model boat club. I have a few pics to bore you all with when i get back. Have anyone seen Electric hydros and gas hydros in the same race??? Well it has been seen here today. When down under do as you like!!!!!.
Have fun boating in that nice cool weather. 29 deg C here today.
Cheers for now. I am off to Perth on Tues so I don't think I will get to see any more boating over here.
