Decking - Posted: 15th Nov 2018
Hi All
Installed the deck and filled around the edges.
Gave the hull a quick run and it handle very well.
Good turning circle and at 50% throttle still over scale speed.
3/4 throttle looks about right.
About to start planking.

Update 2 - Posted: 6th Nov 2018
Hi All
Installed the rudder with oiler, also installed the 60 turn motor with metal joint from banggood.
Installed the 4.5KG servo with linkage to the rudder.
First coat of Matt 37 which showed up a few spots that require a bit of filling.

Hi All
Installed the bulwarks and started on the dingy which I added 19mm to the stern to match the hatch size.

Impressive work Canabus👍
Construction is very similar to the Billing Danish fish cutter I am slowly restoring and converting from static to RC so picked up some useful tips from your photos. Thanks 😊
Cheers, Doug 😎

Julieth 4 French fishing boat - Posted: 14th Oct 2018
Hi All
As the owner of two Hellen fishing boats, I was looking for something with better access, but, about the same size.
I found the French version of the Hellen.
Larger hatch and a raised section forward of the wheelhouse.
Also this is my first strip planked boat, I picked up an IKEA wooden blind for $5au with a 100 strips of 3mm by 25mm and 1100mm long.

Thanks very much for that Canabus.

Will get some.

All the best.

Beautiful boats and great workmanship, I think there is something wonderful about modelling in the same way as the original was built although it always seems a shame to only be able to enjoy the planking after lifting the hatches.
