    Thanks for posting the wee nip video. I've never sailed or built one of these, looks like it would be a fun little boat to have, certainly would be easier to transport than most of my sailboats!

    My friend is traveling in B.C., Canada, and took a photo of this Russel Brothers tug, though he did not do it especially for me, just posted it on his FB page. I asked if he had any other views but By the time he got my question he was farther on his journey. Still, this would make a nice project build.

    My yellow boat was a couple of seconds in front of the action so didnโ€™t get involved. First time for a long time we have had 3 of the same boat on the lake. So 10 mins of โ€˜competitiveโ€™ fun. And we didnโ€™t lose any cameras off boatswhich sometimes happens. ๐Ÿ˜ Yeah pity about the shows... always looked forwards to them. ๐Ÿ˜” SMBC has stopped sailing now till we see how Govt guidelines change, so time to do some repairs etc. Will post some video of my RAF Firefloat- you havenโ€™t seen that. It is 99% finished. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Jaffy012,

    The Curved pieces 44 goes up!
    Glue it onto the deck!
    But, you have to center 44!
    Before you glue it to the deck!

    You may also find you have to trim 44!
    After it's glued to the deck!

    Hey, please start a build blog!

    Hope this helps!

    Ref Wikipedia - Bugsworth Basin is a canal basin at the terminus of the Peak Forest Canal. It is located at Buxworth in the valley of the Black Brook, close to Whaley Bridge. It was once a busy interchange with the Peak Forest Tramway, for the transport of limestone and burnt lime.

    Hi JB,

    I made a little camera mount from aluminium so that I can clamp the mini video camera on to the dinghy in different places. The challenge with the camera is making sure it is pointing in the right direction as it doesn't have a viewfinder.

    Fortunately these little cameras have a wide angle lens and a large 'depth of field' as a result but framing without a viewfinder can by tricky to get the desired POV.
    I note that you've put what looks like a safety cable on the camera in case it goes overboard ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

    Martin.
    I've got some GoPro type cameras that have WiFi built in for remote start/stop and viewing. Very limited range but great for setting the framing using an app on my 'phone. Graham's camera very likely won't have that as it is so small.

    Rob,

    The camera is great for the money. Framing is a bit tricky, especially when you forgot to switch it on so you are on your hands and knees leaning over the side of the lake trying to keep the dinghy steady while switching the camera on ๐Ÿค—

    Yes, added a safety strap in case the ball swivel joint pops out. It seems quite secure, but you never know.

    Love the pipe Graham ! another great use for the smoker, very clever. Bills' handbrake's going to be rancid not being invited. How have you got Ben operating (electronics wise from the TX), more of your clever smoke directing devices no doubt?

    Thanks Commodore,

    I appreciate such feedback from a pipe smoker. I donโ€™t have any first hand experience of pipe smoking but tried to get the action something like realistic. Itโ€™s surprising what you can find examples of when searching YouTube.

    I've been following your 3-D printer blog. I have to say I'm tempted, but I'm not sure I can find the time to learn all the new skills needed.

    I am not sure how you will be able to fit rubber bellows to prevent water ingress.

    Probably not Martin, but I'll figure something out, - perhaps some bituminised cloth made into a tube? Won't need much as the slots will be much smaller when it's all done. Just a bit large due to all the experiments, - plus they are quite high up, and I may be fitting a bilge pump. Was going to buy some boots from Ali Express, but the prices are stupid.

    Ali Express is starting to get like HK, now that HK has been going down for a while,- every time you go back to buy the same item from the same seller, the price has gone up 1 or 2$. Everything's double the price it was 2 yrs ago and free shipping has been slowly disappearing! Going to be cheaper to build a real boat soon! Chinese are starting to take advantage I think, now that the govt has background control of A Exp and are probably trying to suck more money out of the sellers and A Exp as a whole, like they do with all large businesses there.

    A US Navy ARS ( Auxiliary Rescue Salvage ship), built to 1/48th scale. Twin screw with working radar, lights, anchor, and fire monitor. Built from a bare hull, with a lot of Thanks to Shapeways 3D printed parts. She is shown, at anchor, with a friend USN ATF ( Auxiliary tug Fleet) in the back ground.

    Thank you. She was a challenge to build becuse the class changed aft the first three ships were built. All other after the third were completed with one aft mast and several different boom configurations. Interestingly, two of the original design hull went to the RN via Lend Lease and served the Australians. After the war they were sold to a British Columbian Tugboat firm and made historical reputations for themselves.
