This is my carbon hull Drag Cat, it has a tuned 26cc petrol Zen engine with a hand made tuned pipe, been clocked at 65mph fantastic boat, but space is running out so it’s been up for sale for a while.

I always liked the sound of a fourstroke engine so I thought I would replace the brushless motor in this boat with an aircraft Os 40fs which I converted with a water cooling jacket that I turned up on my lathe. I also made a reverse gearbox with a clutch, the gearbox is operated by a servo and works well, I also fitted a water pump so could still cool the engine while ticking over stationary, boat has been weathered and is fitted with lights and a searchlight that swivels around operated by another servo, there is also a cooling fan above the engine just to help keep things cool.

A friend gave me this half built in 1978, it has sat in my loft till 2 years ago when I decided to throw it away as it was all twisted and the hull had been built all wrong, but I thought I would have a go at trying to finish it off. The wood had dried out so had to replace a lot of it but this is how it turned out, it’s a great rough water boat and fast too, one of my favourites.

3d printed hull, makes it a bit heavy but that's good when it runs fast. It's actually too fast for the scale. Can't run it on full speed. It literally stands up on full speed. Medium throttle is enough to make your face shine. The boats small. Can't take more than 2s 600mah but can 1s 1000 can be used.

A Deans Marine Kit. Flat Pack wood / ply. Made up to a nice model. Runs well, although it could do with a little more "bite" on the water As with all hard chine light weight boats it is prowl to windage. Good on still waters but rubbish with a breeze in competitions.

Under construction is this old kit recently given to me after sitting on the shelf for close to 15 years. No plans, no deck fittings, and other parts missing too. It needed a new speed control, motor with geared reduction, battery and the prop shaft bearings were seized requiring several hours of removal and replacement.

This is my Sir Kay (T241) - Round Table Class Minesweeper. It is from the Caldercraft range and I was fortunate to recently acquire it - I would have much preferred to have built it but couldn't miss the opportunity of it being given to me by an old retiring modeller. It just needed new RC throughout, a good clean, a tidy up and some fresh paint here and there plus a bit of rigging renewal. Not tried it in the water yet but will do tomorrow at our Club meet. Tried it today and it sailed really well, stable and sits perfectly on the water and one 3000mA 7.2 NiMH battery lasted all afternoon - so pleased with it. Have now completed the rat lines on the rigging so looking a bit better.
