Hi Keith,
If it's a model boat - it's a Model Boat! 👍
So stick it in your Harbour,
but PLEASE PLEASE with photos so we can see what you're on about 😉
Cheers, Doug 😎

Many of my models are models of models - the Sea Princess, for instance, is a half-sized Sea Queen. In some cases EeZeBilt boats are actually made larger than their originals - so a double-sized Curlew or Triton is a 2:1 scale model of a model rather than a 1:2. Very recursive...

Any boat is a hole in the water into which you pour money👍
