    🎬 HARTLEY TOW VEHICLE, BOAT RAMP, HANDBRAKE TEST
    4 days ago by jbkiwi ( Admiral)
    Flag
    I wanted to try the driveshaft brake I'd recently fitted and thought I might as well do it on an actual ramp. This ramp has around a 30deg slope so it was a good spot for a test. Tried it with just the trailer first, (don't want my boat model disappearing down the ramp at high speed) and it worked well. I've done another vid where I but a 3kg water bottle on the trailer to simulate the weight of the boat, and that also worked well (although it's a bit scary when 13lbs starts rolling down the ramp backwards.

    Lost the trailer a few times going over a big join in the ramp ( forgot the tow ball lock nut) so had a few goes to get it right. I was surprised how well a piece of string round the driveshaft could hold that weight so easily. Only negative is that it's not as good in forward, (would need another wound the opposite hand on the shaft) but that's not as important as reverse control. Still waiting for the weather and tides so I can try another launch. This ramp's not bad, but a little rough !

    πŸ“· Provincial stay-at-home order starts tomorrow.
    8 days ago by Ron ( Captain)
    Flag
    Ontario Premier Doug Ford's cabinet has approved a provincewide stay-at-home order and will close non-essential retail stores for all but curbside pickup, multiple sources told CBC News Tuesday night.

    The move comes in the wake of criticism that restrictions announced last week β€” what the government called "emergency brake" measures β€” are insufficient to slow the spread of Ontario's third wave of COVID-19.

    The Ministry of Health reported another 3,215 cases of the illness Wednesday morning, the most on a single day since Jan. 17, when the second wave was at its peak in the province. Health units also logged 17 more deaths of people with COVID-19, pushing the official toll to 7,475.

    The seven-day average of daily cases has climbed to 2,988, its highest point since January 18.

    The upward trend in new infections comes as the province logged a record-high day for vaccinations, with 104,382 doses administered yesterday, according to the ministry.

    The balsa is quite thick but good idea to line the inside with polyester resin either with standard glass cloth or I find it easier to mix talcum powder with the resin to a thick paste then paint on. The outside coated only with the liquid resin without glass as with the glass theres lots of very messy sanding and re finishing.

    Hi Brightwork,

    Did you reinforce your Corvette hull after you repaired it - or is it still balsa wood?

    I am concerned about this soft wood hull on such a big heavy model.

    The Corvette is a fairly large and heavy boat and the hull is made from balsa wood so it is easy dented from minor impacts.
    I am seriously considering stripping the hull and coating it with a cloth and resin mix to help make it more durable.

    I also have a Chris Craft Corvette from the Sterling kit but the model was built several decades ago by an unknown person as a hull only with a glo plug motor, then sat in a garage for many years still together with the original box and remaining plans and parts. The owner died then his son found me at the St George Model boat Club in Monterey in Sydney Australia, and gave me the remaining pieces. Hull was badly damaged and some parts missing or broken. I really enjoyed bringing this quite rare kit back to life. it is powered by 2 600 heli outrunner brushless motors of 1250kv run on(2S) 7.4volt lipo batteries. I used 2 car esc's of 80amp. This combo gives great performance for a fairly large planing hull. If I use 3S batteries it is way too fast so only need 1/4 throttle for scale planing speed.

    I also have a 48" Chris Craft Corvette that was made from the Sterling kit.
    Mine is being restored as it was not in great shape when I started work on it (see the Mayhem thread) but it is a little too big for my small workshop (shed) so I can only work on it comfortably when we have good weather.........and I live in Lancashire 😎

    Getting the lighting sorted. Accent lights (steps, sitting and helm night light) are all on 3 volt LED with separate switch. Navigation, mast and stern are 4.5 volt on another switch. Radar is also stand alone power. I have her flags (Dutch) and mast ready to put on later.

    Hi JB.
    That would be a great thing to do πŸ‘πŸ‘.
    Ordinarily we would have club boating sessions on a Sunday morning and as soon as the situation allows we can get back to doing that and I can get another member to drive the boat while I do some filming, however a dusk session would be much more difficult to organise. I may have to be content with getting daylight shots for now.
    Rob.

    First time in the water for my 1/48 scratch built model of MV Overchurch Mersey Ferry. No extra ballast required and she responded well to the transmitter.

    Hi David,
    Nice model, good that she doesn't need any ballast, presumably it's because she is relatively beamy. You are lucky to have somewhere to sail her, there's nowhere open around me.
