    ๐ŸŽฌ "NAIAD" Windermere Yacht
    19 hours ago by philcaretaker ( Lieutenant Commander)
    Flag
    "NAIAD" is a Windermere Yacht designed by Herbert Crossley.
    This model yacht is a first "scratch" built RC yacht belonging to "full size" sailor Chris Gay.
    Naiad is seen here undergoing her maiden voyage at the Pavilion Gardens Buxton in the company of Grahams - "ELLEN" the Bristol Cutter.

    'Naiad' is an interesting concept of a very traditional design. I like her lines and it's good to see a good old gaff rigged boat being built today.
    Likewise 'Emma', lovely old Bristol Pilot cutter, sailing well. You have some good boats at Buxton.

    1 month ago by jamesdarryl1963 ( Recruit)

    This is my first scratch build. I used hand tools and a jig saw to cut out the frame. and bulk heads. Keel and frame was cut out of plywood and the rest. of the boat is balsa. I out fitted with parts from various pieces I had pick up at hobby shops and suppliers online. The pilot house, stack and skylight is all hand made with wood and polystyrene fittings.
    I downloaded the plans, altered the scale size and printed the hull and boat to scale. Again this was the first and I now am looking forward to another project.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for the reminder. Iโ€™ll do that later today.

    As for โ€˜whatโ€™s next?โ€™ Thatโ€™s a good question. Iโ€™m taking a break from model building for the next few months. I need a break from it and thereโ€™s lots to do around the house and garden. Iโ€™ll be sailing when I can, but not building. Doesnโ€™t stop me thinking about whatโ€™s next though. I have a few ideas ๐Ÿค”

    Ref 'nose down rear end up' ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Thought it reminded me of something-

    "All along the backwater,
    Through the rushes tall,
    Ducks are a-dabbling,
    Up tails all!๐Ÿ˜

    Ducksโ€™ tails, drakesโ€™ tails,
    Yellow feet a-quiver,
    Yellow bills all out of sight
    Busy in the river!

    Slushy green undergrowth
    Where the roach swimโ€”
    Here we keep our larder,
    Cool and full and dim.

    Everyone for what he likes!
    We like to be
    Heads down, tails up,
    Dabbling free!

    High in the blue above
    Swifts whirl and callโ€”
    We are down a-dabbling
    Up tails all!"

    Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame.

    In this case I suspect it was the absence of an overweight bear at the tiller that shifted the CoG forward ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks Nerys,

    I am pleased with the way it looks, and how it sails although there are a few teething issues which need to be sorted. The tracking of the headsails needs some attention to make it smoother and the main sheet traveller sometimes jams at one end or the other. You can see that if you look carefully at Philโ€™s previous video. I also think the stern is a bit high out of the water. Iโ€™ve made some adjustments for these issues, but havenโ€™t been able to try it out since.

    Doug,

    โ€œHas Ted fallen overboard???๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€

    After his first outing Ted wasnโ€™t feeling too well so has decided to self isolate for 10 days.๐Ÿ˜‚ I think it was probably down to not having his sea legs, rather than having picked up a virus ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. Of course it could also have something to do with his big head being in the way of the on-board camera! Iโ€™m sure he will be back soon.

    I'm very impressed by the way the headsails are all sheeted and actually work individually. Excellent detail in the video. She really could be a full sized pilotcutter when you are looking at her sailing. Her American designer has designed some really nice boats, all of whom sail well, but this one is, I think, exceptional.

    2 months ago by Brightwork ( Sub-Lieutenant)

    I took a break from the CC Catalina to do some spring shipyard work on the Chris Craft 63'. I intended to repower her with new shafts, logs, rudders and motors. I hauled her and began to prep her for the re and re on the engine room and added some resin to her interior. Redid the engine room floor and beds and then built tubs to hold the resin which in tern locks the shaft logs in place. I prepped the hull for new anti foul and redid her dodger and seat cushions. She now has new anti fouling and I thought ready for motors and RC. however, being 60 years old her planks are very brittle and as her anti foul was drying I heard a snap or two in her hull. She does not like the sun anymore. So..full stop..dress her up and she becomes a beautiful shelf queen.

    Finally had a chance to do a test on Pilot 40 project that was my lockdown stay home project . Change the props to 50 mill.4mill.threaded & now I have right prop & left prop Replaced the Sabertooth speed control as it was to hard to control with my Airtronics transmitter used a standard Hobby King speed control changed the wiring terminal block to a larger size as the one I first used was to hard to put wires in it . I always have trouble with mounting so glued the motors in with some goop & there just fine now
