Just to keep anybody thats interested up to date i have almost finished the whaleback now as well as constructing the A frames , hopefuly the rail cappings will go on next week so i can fit the whaleback properly , all the running gear is in and most of the fittings i need have arrived so looking forward to getting this done as im already planning the next one  :-))

Not sure exactly what details you want but here goes

The hull is a sf 33 from models by design as is the w/house the whaleback i have made  she is powered by a 6 volt decaperm powered by 2 6 v 12 amp batteries . I had he in the ballast tank this morning  (bath) and she took 12 lbs of ballast plus the batteries , may need a little more but will wait till shes finished before final trimming , the A frames are brass tube made by myself , lots more too do yet tho  :D :-))

This is my second one and i can assure you they are outstanding on the water  :-)) im going to make all the deck machinery  myself out of brass as ive been making bits and bobs for others recently it would be a shame not to put good gear on her  ;) Regards Andy
