    I had ordered some acrylic lettering!

    But, I want a thin boarder line.

    Going around her name!

    So, I used my label maker!

    To make her name boards!

    I think they look OK!

    What do you think?

    Cheers, Ed

    Hi Colin,

    I use a DYMO LetraTag label maker!

    I got it about 10 years ago!

    The Label strip is about 12 mm!

    I just put a thin board around.

    What ever I want to print!

    Then I cut off the excess!

    And there you go instant label! LOL!

    ๐Ÿ“ "My-Jen" has arrived!

    View All
    Today has been a good day for me!

    Although, I had computer problems!

    Seems my Monitor went on the frits!

    I ended up having to order a new one!

    Which I got today along with my Yacht!

    So, first I did was unpack my new monitor!

    And switch it from my server monitor!

    But, that's another story!

    Anyway, On to the fun part!

    Unpacking the yacht was a small task!

    As it comes packed so that it doesn't brake!

    First I had to cut around the the edge of the shipping box!

    Pull that off, It help to have another person help with this!

    Anyway, pull the shipping box apart!

    Then take a good look inside!

    Make sure everything is OK!

    Everything is held down by tape!

    Cut the tape then pull the radio box off!

    Put that to the side!

    The model is held in place by a strap!

    Cut, the strap pull it off!

    I then leaned the shipping box on it's side!

    Then gently pulled the foam supports out!

    Pulling the model out of the shipping box!

    I then removed all of the Support foam off the model!

    I then assembled the Boat Stand!

    This was very simple to do!

    Press and fit all the model boat stand parts together!

    May add a bead of cyano to it to hold it together!

    OK, I realize I didn't build it!

    But, have run out of space to build!

    "My-Jen" is my last boat to collect!

    No more space available!

    Oh, Reason I have named my new yacht "My-Jen"

    Is, I have named her after my wife!

    Who has put up with my hobby for years now!

    Jennifer loves the name I have picked!

    Oh, I finally have a fiberglass hull!!!!!

    Cheers, Ed

    PS. She come with a 2.4 gig wheel controller!
    And a 2S 7.4 volt 25C Battery!
    I've gone ahead and ordered 2 more!
    Just in case I want to stay at the pond longer!
    Oh, Wait I don't even know If I can go to the pond!

    Rats, that Covid 19!

    Cheers, all!

    I just checked the current Wall Street exchange rates.
    At 1.182058 $539 = โ‚ฌ455.97 or ยฃ412.
    Plus a bit for shipping and profit OK, but ยฃ589 is a ripoff, OUCH๐Ÿ˜

    Try about NZ $1000 Doug, I could build a real 10ft dinghy for that!๐Ÿ˜. When you can buy such a nice looking model it makes you wonder if all the stress of building one is worthwhile (when you consider the time involved and the materials cost.)๐Ÿ˜ That's why all the young guys/girls buy RTF/sail planes, boats etc - fun without much effort๐Ÿ˜Š No different to buying a house car, boat, plane etc I suppose.

    Well Ed, its a grand looking boat, not sure about the classification as trawler, looks more like a classic posh motor yacht, but I don't understand the American types of boat.
    That said, it's a super model which I hope you can really enjoy.

    "I think it's what the Americans call a sports fishing boat,"
    I agree Nerys๐Ÿ‘, also similar to the boats used by the tuna fishers, 'Hochsee Cowboys' they call the TV series over here. I.e. line fishing not trawling, there ain't no trawling gear; no nets, no winches etc etc! Let alone space for all that clobber!

    Doug, I've watched 'Wicked Tuna' as the tuna fishing series is called in this country, but their boats are more like open boats with a big working space and a big cabin/cuddy. I think Ed's boat is bigger with more luxurious accomodation, more like a posh motor cruiser that the rich amateur sports fisherman use to chase species like Barracuda and Spearfish.

    'All I see is a nice looking yacht' , yes Ed, some years ago I was in the South of France and heading down towards the harbour, I saw what looked like several really posh super yachts, gleaming white hulls and superstructure. It wasn't until we reached the quay where they were moored I realised that the were big, very modern trawlers.

    Think they have the description wrong Ed, looks more like a Grand Banks trawler yacht (not really a trawler as such, more a cruiser). Great well built quality boats. We have a number of them down here (Aust/NZ) Hold their price well due to the quality build. Should be a nice model to enhance!

    I had purchased a nice classic boat!

    But, ended up having to send it back!

    Do to cracks all over it's parts!

    I'm talking about my "Christ Craft Sport Fisherman!"

    But, after sending this model back for a full refund!

    Which I got but had to put in a dispute!

    I also won the dispute! Anyway I saw another boat!

    But, I know the guys and gals of this fine website!

    Will be angry at my next acquisition!

    As it's an RTR 35" Fishing Trawler!

    Reason for the RTR I ain't got any room left to build!

    So, decided to cheat.............


    PS. Did I really leave out the picture!

    You, decide! Did I!
    Or was it left out purpose......
