    If you want a laugh Martin, check out 'Tinny Bashing'on You Tube,- seems to be a common Aussie sport.😁 probably others as well. Most of the vids seem to be Aussie though.

    Jb,
    If you thrash your boat like that you will have to fit a glass bottom so you can see what you are about to crash into LOL!

    This is what you guys can expect and more when you get out of lock-up, - sorry,-I meant lock down😁
    We are at level 2 and allowed to shop now,- (spacing, hand washing, signing in etc still applies) but we are almost free! ( just watch it come back now the country's broke) Went out to get some bits and this is what I found, - at all these local shopping malls, supermarkets, building supply shops etc, car parks were completely full (pics are on a normal Monday last April for comparison) These also have big underground carparks which were full as well. Took me about 10mins of circulating to find a park (along with a hundred others) Never seen anything like it, - even a Saturday is not that bad! You'll need to get up early!

    Barbers have been creaming it and have had queues starting at 6am. We've just had the big spendy budget and borrowed/printed billions to give away,- so the young'uns will be paying it back most of their lives, say "THANKS WUHAN" kids ! There're only 4.5m of us here and about 3m working, -(now thousands exra on the dole queue and more to come,) how's that going to happen in a lifetime?! Possibly no national airline, no tourism for who knows how long,- (one of our major industries), no jobs, no money, and people say what a good job the govt has done?! Telling people they are going to build 10,000 state houses,- their last brilliant 100,000 house building scheme managed about 300! There aren't enough builders and we can't import any so how will that work?? MORONS

    We already have people living in cars, garages and sheds (a local beach just over the hill looks like a tent town at the moment!) and they hadn't found houses for them before this happened ! just ridiculous. Anyhoo, enough depressing 'carp' (edited for Mike😁) back to doing more fun stuff while I still can. Waiting for a good day so I can get out in the dinghy for a spot of fish slaughtering, and give the Chinger outboard a sound thrashing (my way of giving something back)πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜β›΅πŸš€

    What ever i decide to make (in-between my U552 Sub)
    will have to be something really crazy.
    As you all know i go through these spells of madness, i think it is genetic LOL!!!
    Or i am just mad?

    As for your "Little Hop" project Doug, I am really looking forward to seeing it.
    I really hope you can get past the template stage without too much trouble.

    "Maybe i will have do something crazy like my fish type projects."
    Now there's a thought!
    You'd be the natural choice to make Jaws to go with Sky's superb Orca MartinπŸ‘

    Apropos paper templates ...
    I'm at the same stage of my possible 'Little Hop' project.
    Have sorted out some 'pico' size RC gear; 4ch RX, 4A ESC, tiny 4.9gm servo and miniature motor (from a collection that Colin-H sent meπŸ˜‰) and tested that all will work reliably on a single cell LiPo (3.7V nominal). All works well down to 3.1V 😊 Range may not be great but for Bathtub Races who needs range?😁
    Will start the blog when I'm further down the line. Still at the template stage now.
    Cheers, Doug 😎
