Hello again !
« on: October 25, 2010, 10:00:27 PM »

Been far too long since I last posted on this forum .
So hello again .
I have been embroiled in lots of things since my last visit here but am hoping to get back into my boating as soon as I am able .
Currently I am very much into photography and a LOT of my free have gone down this route (not to be advised) . But I do think I now take a fair pic after much practice and a lot of help and advice .
Also been very active in charity work and are currently trying to raise funds for Help for Heroes with various things in the pipeline .

I hope to be taking a more active role back on the forum and wish all those that used to know me a big thanks for sticking by me in times that were personally hard .
Thank you .

Shane

Welcome back Shane - a true 'blast from the past'!

As you can see, we are still all here - well most of us anyway.... Just a bit older and not much wiser.

Seems like an age since I was last on here .
Be nice to get my post count back (original name was slewis) but appreciate that will take time .
I am still looking at building an amati aquariva but understand that the hull is plastic now with planking over the top , not my cup of tea so it might well be a scratch build of one as I love the finish on these boats .
Winter is coming so things might progress quickly , then again I might be out on the hills taking pictures instead .

Thanks for the welcome both . :-))

Hi Shane
if your looking to build something like an aquariva (all in wood) then you might like to take a look at the Aero-naut website they do a couple of runabouts.

 Classic Sportsboat
 Princess
 Queen sports yacht   (my favorate)

happy boating..

Thanks Colin-D
Just been looking at your links and been doing a bit of thinking .
Most boats of this type are very similar in appearance so I have been having a bit of a mess around with a pencil and some paper and decided that I may well try a home drawn ,scratch build of something resembling these beauties .
I will hopefully post up some pics of my intended build at the weekend , after I have had time to draw it out properly .
Not saying it will happen , but I do love a challenge !
