    Hi Old Duffer.
    Welcome to the site.
    As you can see you have had lots of valuable info thus far.
    It would be good if you can do a build blog πŸ‘

    Good evening Old Duffer, we don't expect you to keep up with the elite master builders, quite a lot of us take ages to complete our models.
    I have severe arthritis myself which controls the pace of my builds.
    But the feeling of fulfilment at seeing the finished model is what keeps me going.
    We all try to help each other, don't think as a newby on here you can't offer suggestions.
    With your mobility problems you could find easier ways to do things that we don't know about. YET.
    As for your plastic prop if it's the correct size and pitch it will be fine, props can be changed so easily its often best to wait and see how it performs before going to unnecessary expense.
    Cheers Colin.

    Old-duffer,
    Do not worry about how long it takes to build your boat.
    As long as you enjoy the hobby time will have no meaning.

    If and when you have any questions just ask away as i am sure the members here will help you.

    Martin555.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Hi Scamp yours is bigger than mine, the boat!!! the Slec kit included a two bladed plastic propeller, would there be any advantage in replacing this with a three bladed brass one, or will it just look better when it's sitting on the stand?πŸ€”
    Cheers fella.

    The good part is there are no time expectations when building a boat.If you are enjoying the process then that is well worth the time spent on the build.We are with you and will try and answer all your questions .

    Thanks for your advise Martin, as far as a build log tbh I'm not sure if I can do that I would like to post photos from time to time if that's ok? my problem is I have good days and bad day's, what would take you maybe 1 hour to complete a task would possibly take me half a day and I'm not competent enough to add any skills to anyone.as I'm sure that I will be asking many questions and advise during the build.
