Hi mermod boats looking good what you were saying about the coats of release wax that was how i used to do very slow and i found in the corners i started to get build up of wax but now i have gone onto a spray on release agent i dont noif you can get it over there tho.

Just to mention to guys talking about laser machines and want a comparison Mine is a laserite machine who are based in basildone uk

Keep up the good work mermod i no the feeling off trying to make everything perfect .

I hope you don't mean Basildon Essex  :o
From the time I spent working there I hope they import their employees from elsewhere  :}

nothing exciting yet, did the front escape hatch but that's about it, ordering the motors today, after talking to Nick75 I've decided on 2x 350kv turnigy motors...... oh and the props arrived but I cant seem to get down the workshop to take photos.

One hull all laid up, hard to resist pulling it out but it needs a couple of days to harden up.

What the previous pics don't show is a pair of rare earth magnets mounted in the base of the mast that snap it into place but allow it to fold for transport or if it gets a knock from someone that's "just looking"
