18" of Ice covers the pond so much of the information requested must remain blank. The boat has only seen the bathtub ! No leaks. Stable and balanced. Paint is acrylic, clear-coated wood is mahogany. This is a Nor-Star Kingfisher kit with some alterations and added details. Looking forward to posting a video of the boat running on the lake in April after the ice leaves.

The real fire boat is stationed in Buffalo New York . This fire boat visits Port Colborne on Lake Erie every year for Canal Days & because the model boat club I'm in sets up a display at the museum in town I decided to build a scratch build of this boat I used the prints of the Sequin Midwest tug for the hull & Internet photos for details. I used the tops of Lepages glue bottle to simulate the Monitor on the decks I'm real proud of them.

I use two 2400 Wolf Pack battery sets one one each side of the hull to add ballast plus, B-B shot is glued in the hull for weight too. My grandson helped to build and paint it thus the vessel named Michael The boat was too fast with a direct drive so it was replaced with a 3:1 geared reduction. Runs much better more scale speed. The first motor made it look like a speed boat, which was dangerous if my grandson were to sail it.

Gheila is a 10 Rater designed by John Lewis and built by Maurice Seer in around 1956. A friend of mine purchased it from the then owner who used to sail it on the old canoe lake in I.O.W. he bought both Gheila and his own 10 Rater, Prowess built in 1936, back to N.Z. with him in 1972. I purchased Gheila from him some years ago and re furbished her.

Still very much work in progress This Sea Sea Ranger is built from an eBay "Aerokits plan" which has some subtle differences presumably to get around copyright. The cabin sides below cockpit window had a reverse curve to the original but it was not difficult to undo this modification

The Clyde Puffer is a Caldercraft kit of 1:32 scale. It is a representative model of a typical small coaster from the Western Isles of Scotland, known to many ship lovers as a 'Clyde Puffer'. It has a GRP hull which has full external detail, riveting, strakes etc. and a plywood superstructure and decking plus over 200 white metal fittings. As usual for Caldercraft you need to have your thinking cap on as the A0 plan and the 'instruction book' do not match up but of course they do expect you to have a little bit of experience in model building. It has taken me about 6 months to build, but working on and off over this time. It has a large hull which is easy to house the motor, ESC, RC and batteries, etc. (I installed 2 lead acid 6 volt batteries, one on each side amidships) which gives stability and ballast. Being a large deep hull it needs a lot of ballast, even in its short length. I have only tested her in the big white test tank at home so do not know how it will perform on our lake. I have sailed her many times on our lake and she certainly sails well. I installed an electronic switch for the navigation lights and gives a good effect during the darker afternoons/evening.

Built from GRP bits supplied by Willen Lake Mbc Member In 2005 The Irvine engine, an eBay purchase unused and in its original box, is easy to start as it has a ringed piston and never a problem to get it onto the water. Radio gear is now 2.4ghz Futaba FS607. This one has been to the bottom of the lake after mounting a buoy. And back thanks to a friendly customer who did scuba diving for his retrieval efforts and twenty minutes below the surface.
