    Lights for navigation, saftey and towing
    my past experience has been limited to plastic boats and planes plus a couple of RC boats that only required basis nav lights. My new model is the US/Canadian MLB which has 10 lights in addition to nav lights the particular boat is based in Ontario and named Thunder Cape. I have not been able to find specific DIY data on the web so I am looking for information on what I need and how to do it. Suggestion really welcome Austing

    Boat tranporter from car to water Ideas
    Bruce, It might help if you were to describe the types and sizes of your boats. I have several suggestions, but I build large craft, 6-9 ft, so my ideas may not be of any help to you. On the smaller sized boats, I have seen a cradle and sling arrangement also serves as a nice display cradle. Also the hand truck, or luggage truck, those collapsible ones you see people using to move their luggage at airports, seems to work quite well.

    U.S.C.G. Waterways & Ports Patrol Boat
    Just finished this model. Bought it sometime ago at Coatbridge Model Exhibition It was just an unfinished hull with fittings. The boat has twin motors, props, rudders and 2 old Hi Tech ESC with 2 battery pack at 7.2 volts using one at a time. Still to have it on the water yet due to lockdown. Has one of those home made controllers that when you turn the inner motor slows down and the outer one speeds up to aid turner tighter. Scale 1/12

    My second boat from SLEC and again very happy with the outcome, another maiden voyage waiting to happen after lockdown.😁
    The Anteo my very first ever steam powered tug.
    My very first steam-boat back in the 70s, the Anteo by Panart probably the best kit ever, a plank on frame hull with lots of brass fittings. I fitted a Maxwell Hemmings Caton Steam plant and I was smitten, that was the first of many and still going strong. My only regret was somewhat butchering the engine housing in order to fit the valves and pipework. One of these days I might build another and make a much better job of it, hopefully. Check out my harbour for the rest of my small fleet of steam-powered working boats. The Anteo looking very realistic on the water, and the start of a love affair with steam and all it has to offer
    Unknown 26" Pilot Boat
    One of the latest projects I have bought, a 26" Pilot boat. Initially i thought maybe a Lesro model, but the Lesro Pilot boat is bigger, at just over 33" in length. Anyone got any ideas what make it may be?
    HAKITS MORSTON
    The finished result of my building blog, an HAKITS Morston, a fishing boat design and this model based on a Sea Angling boat sailing out of Whitby. Yet to be sailed. Geoff
    Bruce Crandell Flyer - 1/4 scale Single Step Hydroplane
    Fell in love with the design several years ago so thought it to be the time to do something about it. Purchased the plans from john-tom.com - putting myself at the deep end - and I have finally commenced building. The original boat was in the 135 Cu Inch class and had a V8 in front of the single cockpit, and was just under 14ft long (waterline) with a beam of 5ft; It will be interesting and I have a lot of research to do as I go - correct motor, batteries, ballast etc., but that is all part of the fun. Photos will be put up as I go. Wish me luck.
