    After 8 decades I should write a book. Haha. Funny just remembered when I lived in Puerto Rico JB early 2000 flying every Friday n Monday back n forth to Boston. I was building a Viking ship. On the plane ride I would build the oars. Sanded n carved them in first class. I would also fly Rc at a paved field n learned to fly Rc Helis there. Boats n planes so many years. My navy time too I built ships while on a ship. Well I’ll post my progress on my ship building. Maybe it will help others too. Cheers

    I’m starting the cabin parts. Creole Queen paddle wheeler. However, I can’t find a drawing of the cabin sheets to punch out. Does anyone have that page? Can you take a pic? I threw old set from last build n bet it was in pile.

    I have had on order for two years from scale shipyard the USN Garcia DE 1040. Was on that ship in 65-67. We went to Uk london and Manchester. I have smaller models of it but wanted the 5 ft hulk to do a really detailed one from personal photos. We were with the Drente Dutch and Agincourt UK ships on NATO tour. I was told maybe they will have it done for xmas. Delay due to Covid n moving his shop. I hope the paddle wheeler is done by then. I’m going in garage n do water proofing of inside the boat body. Cheers

    I’ll use 1/2 pine strips on the shear will raise the platform to glue the deck on. That will add height so it will sit higher in water. I’m going to seal the body inside with acrylic minwax blue spray can. If I need to sit lower in water I can add weights. The Dumas creole Queen stern wheeler is a lot of wood, carving n sanding. The quality wood is great. Lots of left over scrap. It will have a 6 ch spektrum radio n a metal gear digital Servo to drive the rudders.

    In pic is the boat body I placed the pine blocks to see how deck will sit.

    I’m getting to that point. Building the creole queen Dumas paddle wheel ship now body done but I’ll adding 1/2 inch to raise the main deck. I’ll fiberglass this body frame before adding the main deck. I’ll add doors to the cabin structures this time. Also smoke n new engine drive belt from model car. Took a month to get this far. Lots of wood n sanding. I’ll also seal the inside of the body. Cheers n happy holidays

    Back in the '70s i paid CAN$400 for my 1st 72MHz 4-function radio setup for a STANDARD CLASS glider, 100" span. I journalled the build, it took over 90hr. Today i get a 6-function 2.4 rig for CAN$50 from Amazon, then add $20max for a good rudder servo. Gliders dont require an ESC so the comparison ends there. My hobbies seem to get less expensive as I age.β›΅

    As we age Rc gets less on aircraft Boats what can happen wrong? It turns left not right but no crash

    My large high speed glider went straight down liPo but like pretzel but didn’t explode or open. I blame the receiver but not so sure it wasn’t me. Boats are safer bet n less clean up on damage. Now where did I put that electric jet engine fighter?
