    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    That is indeed a bargain!

    I have noticed that my small bottles of MEK tend to disappear through evaporation more rapidly than through use! Have you noticed any such issue?

    Hi Redpmg

    That is a long way to just get some glue, I have been trying out the glue on P/C not a good idea so for now only using it for gluing wood.

    I use this for all my P/C work 1 LITRE PURE 99.9% MEK METHYL ETHYL KETONE SOLVENT 1L 2-BUTANONE cost me ยฃ7.99 via eBay in 2017, when a small bottle can cost you just under ยฃ3.00 that is a big saving.

    You're not supposed to boil 'em in the pool Crewman! ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Add a few gallons of olive oil to help with the filters.
    Might make the noodle hard to stick though ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Boil for 8 to 10 minutes until al dente (to the tooth!)
    It makes 'em easier to bend๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
    Glue with tomato or cheese sauce to taste. Grated parmesan helps! ๐Ÿ˜œ

    They are called Pool Noodles for kids to play with in a swimming pool. Looks like the foam insulation you get on pipes but comes in bright colours, about 2m long 2 1/2" wide . There was an article in a recent Model Boats on a club in the US that uses them as have-a-go boats.

    Simply bend the noodles around a deck/base , glue noodle to itself , waterproof the edges of the already inserted deck into the previously cut slit using acrylic sealant top & bottom , then build superstructure over high coaming on the deck, insert prop, motor etc of your choice. Waterproof wood etc. With the foam tubes acting like the inflatables on a full size boat (all round the boat NOT open at the rear) . Big boat and very seaworthy a la a rubber duck (RIB)

    Pool Noodles are the foam insulation for pipes, used as flotation devices. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pool_noodle

    They can be used as fenders for large model boats, and look very similar to the inflated tubes in an RIB, so they can be used to make RIB hulls. But joining them and shaping them is often a problem...
