    Only paper sails for now but just had to test the rc systems along with a fan blowing gently across the room.

    Tried several different β€œ sailing β€œ attitudes and adjusted the sails accordingly. The main works well and is very responsive, the jib being paper is not as responsive but I am sure the cloth one will respond better. All in all I was pleased.

    No bear skipper yet just a substitute skipper from the yacht club.

    Golf clubs were being stored for the winter in the shop area as we needed access to them for a 40% discount on grips this month.

    Both my wife and I enjoy the game. We walk the course, it is good exercise, and recommended for seniors. It promotes agility, balance, flexibility and endurance says our physiotherapist who also plays golf.

    We are mini members of a nice course and the membership is only $180 per year which gives us half price greens fees. Others will pay $32 while the two of us can play it $32 for the two of us.

    We have played golf coast to-coast inCanada, some US states, Ireland, and UK, and looking forward to playing in Scotland.

    All the grandsons play as do our grown son and daughter, only a daughter-in-law doesn’t.

    Maybe it’s expensive in your area, but I don’t buy my model kits. I buy my Radio transmitters used and play often with found golf balls.

    Did I say, we also bike together but those aren’t in the workshop 😁.

    I really like the colour scheme.
    I couldn't help but notice a set of golf clubs in your photos. Playing golf is seriously injurious to your mental health and your wallet, so be warned !

    Hi Ronald have you found a suitable 'teddy' to be at the helm? I have tried all over in the UK for a Teddy the righr size but apart from very expensive ones got no-where.

    All looking good.

    Hull is painted and once the paint hardens it will get several coats of gloss clear on the hull and semi-gloss on the deck and cabin.

    The sails will be cotton poplin in a pale blue the same as my schooner’s sails.

    Work is progressing nicely Ronald. Make sure to protect all internal wood surfaces from moisture damage because, come what may, water will always find a way in to the hull and it is easier to take preventative measures than restorative ones. πŸ˜‰

    Interior of the hull is fully painted and the deck has been glued in place.
