I built the 44 several years ago & wasn't happy with her as it listed to much on port & starboard turns because the cabin was to heavy so I rebuilt the cabin with lighter plywood started running her at the pond & seems a lot better now.Still needs a little more work with fittings

Bought it as partly build, and had to take it more or less apart to make it straight. Used a PU glue for the first set of planking, what a mess but it's strong. First trails on water showed that the balance was wrong so have to re-arrange the electronics. Unfortunately the trails also revealed that I had missed something with the sealing (my wife used the same materials for her Classic without any problems) so first of all I'll have to strip parts of the mahogany plating down and redo it :-( before I'll do any thing more on this model.

Skimmer built from Model Boat plans back in 2010 (Glynn Guest). I use a 5.5"x4.5" prop. It is hard to control as it tends to skew to the side due to the twist of the drive unit, I think I didn't gave it enough angel of the motor mount. If I was to do another one, I would add small rails on the bottom to give it just a bit more direction stability.

Old school Robbe kit that I found 2 years ago.Build as intended except for the use of LiPo. I have only tested it with 2S mA >Cell but as the weight is less than half of the intended cell NiCD it performs great. The plan is to get my GPS logger on it. And also to test with 3S mA LiPo.
