    ๐Ÿ˜‹I have just finished refurbishing this boat. It was given to me by a Club members wife whose husband had passed away. The boat was made some years ago and was in a fragile state as the adhesive used had dried out. The parts almost fell off and I managed to strip the model completely down and repaint and build it again. I have installed new prop shaft, prop, motor, rudder assembly and RC throughout. 'Sea' trials will be held soon as long as I can properly seal between the hull and the deck.

    Always very satisfying to restore a boat donated to under such conditions, especially when you make such a good job of the restoration.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Thanks Nerys and Martin for the comments. Any suggestions regarding the waterproofing between the hull and the deck ? As you may know, the whole of the deck is fixed to the hull by 7 screws - there is no recess to insert a seal between both parts but wondered if there may be a thin rubber strip about 3mm by 2mm that has an adhesive backing on one side only that might be used ? I need access to the internals through the hull although I have made a small removable access to enable the BEC supply via a switch to the receiver and possibly a battery charging point.

    Hi ads90,
    Maybe something like this ?
    If you type in "self adhesive thin rubber strip" into Ebay there is quite a selection.

    Thanks Martin. I see the smallest width is still 10mm which would mean cutting it down to size along the length which is feasible with a scalpel and steel straight edge. Cheers Alan
