It's a great video too. The on board footage is a fantastic addition Paul.

From earlier on up this thread =

Hi Red and all :)

Glad to see you are still having fun tinkering with yours :)

I have a bit of a problem :(

In Feb we moved away from the hustle and noise of central Chester and now live in a very nice village in the country called Malpas.

The problem is I can find nowhere near here to use my Huntsman :(

Birkenhead is now over 35 miles away :(

End result is I have not had it on any water since last autumn :(

I have even thought that I ought to sell it as it is a shame for it to be just sitting on a shelf in the spare room :(


I still have not found anywhere near me to use my boat (Swordsman / Huntress ?) so I have reluctantly decided to sell it.

Look for my for sale post in, well, the "For Sale" section. It's not going on Ebay because I want it to go to a good home as it's such a charming, fast, and interesting boat.

Regards to all,
John 20 miles south of Chester

Just tagged onto this thread as a way of finding it quickly when I want to refer to it...I'm gonna have one of these boats one day :-)

I just discovered that although I used to post on here quite often a while back, I have had to re-register and that puts me back as a newcomer, which in turn means I cannot use the "For Sale" section   >:-o - So it looks like this boat will have to take it's chances on Ebay  :((

This is good as I was very reluctant to put it on Ebay as I didn't want it to go to some spotty Herbert that didn't know what it really is.

I have sent you a link to a DropBox folder with lots of Hi-Res pics and a txt file telling all about the boat.

Here is a "taster" =



Since that shot I have put "glazing" in the windows.

Regards,
John

We sail at Gresford, just North of Wrexham a couple of afternoons a week (Wed and Sat from 2pm)

Any use to you?

-Rob

Edit:

Never mind, I see that despite the thread title, your boat's ic not brushless.

I remember commenting on how unusual the rear of the cabin was, giving the boat a real "racey" look. I am still a member of St Helens Model Boat club, which from Wirral is still a 40 min drive, but its a great location, nice people and a good size lake, unfortunately suffering from the dreaded weed problem at the moment :((

I still use Gautby in Birkenhead, and have also sailed in Newsham Park, Liverpool, very welcoming bunch there.

As far as My Huntsman, other projects have delayed the twin screw conversion, at present a PCF Swift boat refurb, and an RC shark, but thanks for revitalising this thread for others to read. I too lost my identity some time ago so I am no longer linked to this thread.

I know this thread have been going for a while but since I'm in the process of rebuilding a Veron Huntsman 28 myself and use this as my reference while trying to give this superior kit some justice, a thank you is in order to Paul. Great work.

Hi to Paul and all the other followers of this thread  :-))

Sadly I still haven't been able to use my IC powered Swordsman / Huntress ? (pic a few posts up) due to living (for 4 years now) too far away from any suitable water. I must decide whether to keep it, oiled and "mothballed", or to reluctantly stick it on Ebay to take it's chances.

Regards to all,
John, (near Whitchurch, in N.Shropshire).

I have considered this, but I am against it on two grounds, firstly, more than 50% of my interest in model boats (and I used to race CMB 67 powered FSRV "multi's") is that I love messin with real engines (same with my aeroplanes). Secondly, I have seen how much work (and money spent) Red has done to get his "up to speed"! Ta for the suggestion though  :-))

Hi Paul and all.

Sadly I have now bitten the bullet and put mine on Ebay.
I hated seeing it just sat on a cupboard in the spare room gathering dust.
It needs to be used, but I just don't have water big enough near my since moving house  :(( <:(

If anyone wants a look, it's item number  221705294651

Feeling really quite sad typing this.

Nothing wrong with keeping a good build log fresh Paul, I missed it  :embarrassed:  I was only looking in the 'dry dock' board for hint's , I soundly CURSED halford's Hi-Build yellow primer >>:-(  put my painting back weeks & weeks, stripped it all eventually & started again . . .  I'm getting MAD again . . . .

...and there was I, thinking this thread was finished...thanks for bringing it back to the fore.

There's a number of your photo's that I had intended using as reference for my upcoming Huntsman rebuild and I thought they had vanished. :-)

well its time to bump this thread again!


The Huntsman came out twice in 2019, and its been out once 2020. late last year  I acquired two really expensive 6 cell, 8000mah lipos, really high quality, as a pay off for a RC related job. I was going to sell them as they are massive, too big for any of my RC Planes, but then remembered I owned something that was nesting in its box that used 6 cells.....

Hi John,


nice to hear from you. I passed Gautby a few weeks back, and the council have chopped all the trees down (behind where I was standing) as they where rotten and becoming dangerous. Its made the lake feel a bit open to the elements, which is a shame, and not so private now, yeah the race! ha ha


Think I would def have you on the first lap, after that, well Ill be looking at your transom as my lipos deplete. I keep promising to make it twin screw, and a lot lighter, but Im RC Planes now and never really have the time to dabble with boats as planes crash!

I keep promising myself never to use it, but somehow it always sneaks in, and usually always creates issues, even when staying with same brand, think its because its always in the paint cupboard, and at night, secretly pushes itself to the front of the shelf, always reacts with white and black top coats!
