I love making these boats from scratch with remote control and all the other bits. But I like to put some humour in them. Out here in Spain the locals love my boats with these extras.

It's getting near to sailing day. 16 coats of boat varnish later my Riva Barrel back Chris Craft will see water soon.Newly arrived parts and decals from Dumas have arrived from Tucson Arizona.I did drive Doug at Dumas mad with questions on parts but he was very helpful. Had to figure out how to place the back top panel on and off in one go to get access to motor and battery.About two weeks more and I think it will be launch day.

Riva Chris Craft finally finished after numerous coats of varnish and sanding.Beauty to work on especially as it was plans from Canada for 18 pounds and scrap two and three ply wood. Dumas supplied chrome accessories which gives that special look and were very helpful

I launched her yesterday and she went well. No ballast was needed and I put a 9.7 battery for powering. She is very fast and two weeks time will go on the boat clubs water in Torrevieja,
