hi eddie
the reverse stick forward boat thing is either because a) the servo reverse switch is in the wrong place or the wires on the motor are wrong way round. If you look at the transmitter handset, there will be 2 slide switches. one will say something like trl rev and the other will say something like str rev. they switch the direction of the control sticks. Turn off the boat and transmitter click the trl rev over and when you power back up forward should be forward.
Ta Mike, will have a gander at the gubbins. Si:)

Thanking you sir, glad you like it. I know many modellers of planes, boats, cars-static models or RC look down on tired, scruffy models. And I must admit that a model boat in full varnished wood and gleaming paint and brasswork is a wonderful thing for the eye to behold, but, there is a place for tired, scruffy, worn out 'real-life' looking boats. I think I mentioned, either in this thread or another, that my boat is based on one I saw in Bridlington, algae covered roof, blistered, rusty paintwork but her crew loved her and she chugged away happily-somehow I knew that although the crew didn't keep upto her as best they should-they did their best and I knew that she would look after them. So, the 'BIG D J96' may not be the bellé of the pond but she will certainly look smart in my eyes.
Thanks again.

Just got to do some slight white/grey weathering on the deck, sort out the rubber, which is good by the way, but I want to remove and wood the inner hull to give strength then add the rubber over the top. And she be all ready to take to the high seas...well the pond anyway  :D

Thanks Tony.
LOL, it be a small tender boat, hated the green cover and painting it would be awkward so decided on the tarp. Does look like a coffin though doesn't it? :D

Just a few more details added, two small liferaft cannisters added to rear cabin roof, ladder on mast, new horn, found some more gogs (out of my old inhalers_ for the second small crane, box-shaped and weathered to house new fishing net with floats, even sewed some onto the netting, radar reflectors added. I also repaired the broken hull top, will add some  thin wood on the inside to strengthen the cracked hull, paint and then she is finished...know idea how she will handle in the water but at least she will look good as she capsizes  :D
