    Fast attack craft
    Very nice job Martin - looking really good - glad you finished the project even as a static model. Should not have to be much bigger for RC - if anything - a pair of 280's or speed 300s on 6v 2/3 AA Nimh would push her well at the current size . Using one lightweight ESC driving both motors and small receiver/servo would not add much weight. How does she float at present? (of course Dodgy would be using brushless motors and Lipo's which I'm totally unfamiliar with)

    Model Boat Builders in the Redcar area.
    Hi Michael, and good to hear from you, I don't rate my chances much of finding like-minded boat builders in this area. Which is a pity as several boats ready for the water, and no-one to give me a hand? Try googling GLR Kennions Ltd, as they sell copper tube of all sizes from 6" o/d down to 1/16" o/d. and copper sheet for the end caps from Metals 4U. I am giving this some serious thought myself as a 3 1/2" x 6" boiler will set you back between Β£300 & Β£400, and getting more expensive by the month. Have you thought about a flash steam boiler which has a degree of simplicity and is not a pressurised vessel as such? The Latin Equivalent being, wait for it Aqueous Vapourous. Regards, Gary

    Actually, the turtle back is a vacuum formed part. Styrene, I think.

    Night Watch
    Whilst on weekend leave, I have given due thought to our patrols looking for the Somerset Scrumpy Smugglers. No doubt they are well aware of our current, predictable, modus operandi, therefore, as from today, our patrols will be more erratic and take place at any time day or night. In this way, hope to catch them red handed. Nerys SubLt.

    Fast Attack Craft.
    Well guys this is the final boat. And as you know my first attempt at designing a boat for the EeZeBuilt web site. The weapons are designed so that they can be made quite easily. I am not happy with it, there will have to be a lot of changes made. It will need to be bigger for RC. The Bow will need to be designed differently for the younger ones to be able to make this easier. Unfortunately I have made this a static model as I do not have enough RC Equipment. Length 20" Beam 4 1/4" Height 6" Martin555.
    Motor Barge 'Nellie'
    In the 1940s and 50s, many traditional Thames Sailing barges were converted into motor barges. This is a model, based on photos and my memory of the 'Nellie'. The sailing barge 'Nellie' was built by Cremers at Hollowshore, Faversham in 1901,. She traded under sail carrying about 90 tons of cargo around the Thames, Medway and Swale until about 1952 and then had the gear taken out, a Chrysler Crown petrol/paraffin motor installed and carried on trading for some years owned by R.Lapthorne & Co of Hoo on the River Medway.. She was eventually sold out of trade and is now privately owned. She has been rerigged with a reduced sailing barge rig without a topsail. My model is based on a 30" barge hull from Dave Watts Mastman.
