Looks great Barry, got any more photo's? 
When you give her a proper run don't forget the photo's.  (and plenty of them)

Okay Gary...You asked for them...

OFFICIAL LAUNCH..

Today she had her first proper sail and overall I am delighted..I pushed her hard to ensure she stays dry and to test the P94 from Action. She went better than I expected, apart from a slight list to port and the P94 needing a little tweak to make the steering slightly more responsive, there were no problems at all. Ignore the ships boat, it is heading for the bin and I am going to start them again.

A total novice had no problem running her around the pool, without hitting the walls, mainly thanks to the P94, which imparts instant response to the radio, enabling delicate manouvres with ease. I am delighted.

After the sail, I checked the inside and she was bone dry....

Hope you all enjoy the photos. I do have a short video but have no idea how to go about posting it.

Cracking boat and photo's. O0
No 011 and 013 are superb - the weathering looks brilliant as do the crew.
I'll be happy if mine comes out half as good.  Can you try and get the video on? (if you can) O0

Gary,

Thanks for that and yes photos 11 and 13 are the best..if you ignore the ships boat which is destined for the bin when I can get hols of some balsa to carve new ones...I will try to post the video which is only short but need to find out how.....Maybe I should join Youtube??

I checked out the P94 and it was fine, just a ittle problem with me. The slight list to port was due to the main battery having moved slightly during transport so all is well now and she goes very well on the water....Thanks everyone for all your kind comments. I will post again but it may be a while as I want to totally finish her first...

Hi Barry.

You-tube will be great fun. I had initial problems getting a film uploaded and have learnt a few tricks on the way.

1st you are going to need to get your films, which are probably in AVI format, transfered to Mpeg4. I have my Film making program that does this for me.

2nd there is a limit on the size of the film which is 100meg, so at this format you can go up to about 7 minutes long, although I have seen longer films on there and I'm not sure how they got away with it because they are converted again to their formatting. (which is why you can't download their versions without special gear.

Where I was going wrong was that before converting the AVI files, my films memory content were a massive 6 gigs, and were refused permission to load, yet the same film converted down in Mpeg4 was drastically reduced in size and beat the limitations.

Hope this helps.

Kenny,

Finally joined Youtube and posted these two short videos of her in action. Sorry about the quality and lack of sound but they were shot on my stills camera. The guy sailing her is a complete novice who made it look easy..

I hope to get better at this lark,

True Richard, I have been looking for a club earby but there isn't one.....May have to start my own as we do have a beautiful lake within a kilometer of the house...but it has to be formalised before it can be used    ...Now all I need are members!!!

Hi guys,

Well it has been a while but have finally made some progress with the tugs bpats. I settled fro the papier mache approach on a balsa plug and have now got to a stage where the hulls have been painted and covered in a kitchen paper tarpaulin. They still need to be aged and installed on the tug, oh and a few ropes and bits and bobs added so will keep you all posted..

I have now attached the bow fender after initial weathering with black coffee. Just a little more needed before final varnishing so I attached the starboard boat which only requires rigging, weathering and final varnishing..

 :-) :-) :-)SHE IS NOW FINISHED.... :-) :-) :-)

Fenders aged with coffee and a weak black emulsion..

Ships boats rigged, aged and varnished.

Thanks guys for allowing me to share this build with you all and for the many helpful and on occasions humerous comments. I really feel as if I have not done this on my own...
