This really is a build project, it is hardly out of the box. It will eventually grace the starboard side davits on Bulldog. However she shall be a fully working boat in her own right, a spin off from the Diana Challenge in a boat mag years ago. More when I get a whole lot more done

Metcalfe Kit at 1/48 She is has fine lines and looks well on the water. She handles reasonably well with independent control on each shaft given her length and the amount of superstructure too. She has direct drive on each shaft and need a load of ballast in the stern to keep the props well in the water otherwise she will capitate quite dramatically Running 2 x 12 Amp Hour lead acids she has a great run time, helped by her hull lines, she will carry her way for quite a distance, so yo need to keep your wits about you on a busy pond! She is an ongoing project / refit with new davits and ships boats to be added.

Model Slipway kit, with the incorrect wheelhouse windows, may change them one day when I have time on my hands, i do wish!! Been refitted with a Bow Thruster and up rated batteries from 2 x 12 Amp Hour to 2 x 14 Amp to give a better run time. Fan cooling added t the main motors. She runs well and I am slowly mastering the slow speed tight manoeuvring that twin screws on independent control and a bow thruster can give. A proper "Little" Big Ship that looks the part.

I'v had this model for a long time & it has had several different drive setups lastly a outboard motor that runs quit well but is a little noise .I built it with the outboard motor as it turns real well in reverse which is a asset at the high point regatas we have . stop at a buoy then reverse out I always mess up hopefully I'll do better at our Buffalo N.Y.

Built from a Billings kit I bought at Bury Metro open day. This is quite an old kit and needed careful handling due to it's age. I needed to reinforce the hull in places. Quite a reasonably easy kit to build, despite Billings (as usual) not providing any instructions, jus drawings to guide the builder.

dumas commander wood is not the right type, having to change alot of things in the build, the instruction are not very clear at allllll. not like the other dumas boats. up to the hull finishing, have to bondo the hull cause of all the differences from one side to another, a pain and then have to fiberglass it, this is my first fiberglassing should be fun, if anything like my other boat, it is going to be a long process, takes the fun out of building the boat.

Motor: Main Sail, Jib Sail, Genoa/Blister
1:10 scale model of a "Round the World" ocean racing Yatch. I have the Genoa kit fitted and the Blister kit fitted. While sailing in rough weather, a certain amount of water built up in the cockpits, so I fitted an autobailer, to syphon it away without docking. The other modification is to the main Sail sheeting. Instead of the the main sheet coming up through the deck, and along the boom and fixed to the cleat in the cockpit! I ran the main sheet directly into the cockpit, across a pulley and up to the boom. Along the boom and down to a traveller mounted on the cabin roof. Allowing the main Sail to swing out, but stay taught, and then giving twist to the Sail when on a broad reach. See posted pictures.
