    Ken, thank you, kind sir, for your appraisal of Alice and my relationship. It's quite true we are very lucky to have that special spark that is so seldom achieved.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Good morning Nerys,
    It is such a shame that our love has to endure such hardships caused by illness, you are extremely lucky to have your Alice. As I am with Caroline, we both have problems that have caused us pain and depression, but we carry on caring for each other. We have family members who think we should get carers in, but they don't have the connection with us that we do with each other.
    Live life for today and to hell with what might be. Love conquers all.
    Give Alice our best wishes for you both.
    Cheers Colin and Caroline.

    Looks like a nice build Colin, she’s coming on lovey. Having Seen both motors in action on the water, the brushless is much more efficient. But I think you can still run them on your normal battery and charging system.
    No doubt I’ll be corrected if I’m wrong, lol.
    Cheers

    Think your build is coming on remarkably well, she's beginning to take on a lot of the usual fireboat characteristics. The care and experience you are putting into this build is plain for us all to see. Just wish I could raise the energy to emulate you and even make the first move of actually buying the kit of the LST.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Colin, Alice and I have a wonderful relationship as I know you and Caroline do. There is no question of servitude, whatever Alice does for me is always done with good grace and love. She is only too well aware of how frail I have become in recent months and does all she can, and more, to make my life just that little bit better.

    Best wishes, Nerys

    Back to the build, sorted a few more of the parts.
    I have glued the cabin frames ready, I need to trim and sand ready to fit the roof's.
    Before I fit the skins,I have a question, what motor do I have to use, from my stock I have brushed 540's, 600's, decaperm or hectaperm available. Or do I go for a brushless and what size would be best. Only call me old fashioned as I want to use standard nim-h or ni-cad batteries or sla as these are easier for me as then I will not have to buy a new charging system.
    Cheers Colin.

    I don't think that's true partners do make the extra effort to help and in the end you help each other.

    Shush Nerys don't tell anyone, but it makes them sound like servants.
    But no servant would put up with what they have to.
    Only true love and devotion can survive our whims and misfortunes.
    Cheers Colin.
