You are getting on with her very well, certainly putting me to shame  :)
Keep up the good work, I am sure she will look superb when finished.

Hello everyone, me and dad have got the hull painted in primer today. I had my first go with a spray gun today like they use on cars, it was quite heavy but it did the job really quick. I will be flatting it off tomorrow when the primer has cured. Tomorrow I am hoping to get the prop shafts and rudder in and then we will start on the cutouts on the side of the hull.

Your a lucky bloke Mark, I wish I could get my lot interested in boats like young Hannah.

Come to think of it I wish I could get them interested in anything.

Have one for me, Richard ;)

Shouldnt you be wearing a mask when doing all that rubbing down   :)
Seriously, your model is looking superb, I am glad you enjoy all that hard work, Like DickyD, wish my lot would.

Dear Hannah,

Thankyou for your reply. Just joking really. Don't blame you for not wanting to part with your ship after all that work. Another few weeks and it will be finished! ;D - what's the next project!!! ;D

Helo everyone, still working hard the camera/computer is playing up again so no pics at the moment. Me and dad installed the three prop shafts today the centre shaft is a flexi shaft from an old fast electric boat my dad crashed years ago and never repaired, this shaft made it alot easier to put in the hull as we did not have to remove any of the keel like you would with a solid shaft and the other two are normal solid shafts. I am hoping to get the hull completed and some electrics installed for the mayhem weekend and sail her!!! Will post some more pics soon.

Hello everyone, we finally sorted the camera/computer out here are some pics of the prop shafts and props installed. My dad did one side and I copied what he did on the other side. We haven't done much more as we were Billing Aquadrome for a car show the weekend.
