    Hi Greg.
    18 months ago I would have been very happy to help you directly as my house is in Paignton. I now live near to Budapest so the bus fare is much more.
    My only suggestion, due to the circumstances, is to contact Cornwall Model Boats as I have heard that they can offer a very good information service from people that have actually made a boat.
    Good luck with the build.
    Peter.๐Ÿ˜Š
    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Hello Martin,

    I agree with what you have said about adding photographs. I will add them from now on. I will try and add some to this discussion but I have a lot going on at the moment so it might be a couple of days before I can.

    Hi Greg,
    As you get your bits and pieces of RC equipment and the questions start to arise regarding installation, please post photos of what you are talking about as a photo will really help us to give you the answers you require.

    Martin.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    If you insist upon installing a fuse I highly recommend that you purchase automotive blade fuses. They are readily available...on Amazon & even in dept store automotive depths (such as Walmart). Use an inline householder for simplicity,installing it in the +battery lead,in a spot where you can readily pull it above deck for ease in changing. Those fuses are available in abt 5 styles/physical sizes, I chose to use the same ones as in my car (so that a box of assorted covers 2 items in the household. The blade-style automobile fuse is easy to handle, you can see whether it's blown or intact thru the side window of the fuse body, they are relatively inexpensive, readily bought, & easy to get in/out of the holder. Also the fuse element extends upward thru its case so during operation you can put a DVM on the contacts, a fuse is actually a known resistor, there are charts on the internet so you can determine fuse current just by measuring the mV across the fuse element. They are readily available for 16 values, 1Amp thru 80Amp.

    Hello Ron. Thank you for mentioning the Exeter club. I did try to make contact with them a couple of weeks ago. I recently had a similar post from Graham about contacting a club and below is my reply to him.

    "Concerning the local club. I had a problem with contacting them a couple of weeks back. I found their site online and emailed their point of contact using the email address provided. About a week later I got a reply from someone who did not give a name saying that the point of contact on the site had passed away on new years day and that they could not help me and made no offer to get someone else to contact me. So my trying to make contact with a local club came to an abrupt end before it got started."

    Concerning the electrics. After more research I am well on my way to understanding what I have to do. Thanks again.

    Greg ๐Ÿ‘
    Best regards, Greg

    Firefighter, altho I hav been sailing powerboats for decades they were always RTRs or ready hulls with very good instructions showing exact placements of the various components. I'm just now building my first wood kit,a box full of lasercut ply bits (ZIPP tug). So...I hav many of the same questions that you have. I've been very fortunate to be welcomed into METRO MARINE MODELLERS a Toronto-based sail/scale display/power club & i was instantly befriended by 2 avid power boaters who hav been wonderfully helpful,generous with their time,advice,friendship,bits n pieces. We sailed together weekly until the ice arrived. My point is,persist in your search for a local club, your hobbyshop where you bought your kit shud be able to help you find something in your area,they hav a vested interest in growing the hobbies they sell...trains,planes,automobiles...&boatsโ›ต๐Ÿšค
