    Just wanted to mention to Martin if you build the lobster boat be sure to put ballast in her I'v seen one that flipped over in Spenser's pool because the wind was a bit strong near Lake Ontario . ⚑

    Gumboot Cloggeroo Had it's maiden voyage on March 4th at the Hamilton Boat show . She didn't leak but had several issues Needed more weight in the stern.Rudder is a cable system that didn't work well & needed changing to servo rod system My transmitter speed control was on the right side of transmitter & I had to move it to the left side & needed to open up the transmitter & file a notch in the actuator at the center for neutral .Rudder needed to be rebuilt with a extra 1/4 inch larger . After all these changes ran boat On March 6th & it ran a lot better. Used L.E.D. lights that are turned on by a switch on the transmitter. Had to install 180 ohm resisters in series with LED's As there fed off the 7.2 volt Battery supply And a Turnigy R/C Electronic switch.

    Started Building the midwest lobster boat kit in Nov. She's almost complete I wish I'd posted more Photos of the build . I not sure what to name her But I'm leaning towards a Stompin Tom Conner's song title Muk Tuk Annie or may be Gumboot Cloggeroo

    Thanks for your remarks I will paint the model a Ivory white with a black hull at the water line I'm not very good with colors .I'll post a photo of the cabin floor that I do I use wood strips then a thin plastic strip between the wood to make a chalk line .The kit comes with lots of accessory that make the model look very nice. things like Lobster traps that need building & buoys Plus two lobsters
