This is a Dumas Coast Guard Life boat lit given to me from my now wife for Christmas 2014. I've scratch built model planes (50 years ago) but never a boat. So, I'm learning on the job, as they say. Just started on the power train this past week before I do any top deck work.

That's a great model kit. I have built several Dumas kits over the years and have never been disappointed. They allow you to use your imagination and skills; but my first RC project some28 years ago was a Billings Boats 1:20 USCG 44 foot Motor Lifeboat like yours with an ABS hull and wood superstructure. To be honest, I've been working on her for as long as I've been a father! Always adding details or overhauling, I reckon. A couple of years ago I took her apart and repainted the hull. Now I am periodically reassembling her with 52' Motor Lifeboathe original fittings. My present project is a Barracuda RC Boats 1:12 USCG 52' Motor Lifeboat, of which there are only three kits world-wide. The actual MLB "Triumph" (CG-52301, 2 were built in 1935) was lost with all hands during a rescue attempt off Cape Disappointment, WA in January 1961.
My Father built strong aircraft, and I always preferred boats. I overbuild my boats in the same manner. My weakness is that I can't wait for the glue to dry. Looks good & keep up the great work! GO CUBS!

Response by skegness on the 16th Oct 2016
What brushless motors you using,and how long running time as I'm very tempted to put them in the monster Mersey after the trials with brushed motors,because at 78" long & 90 mm props it might be costly
Response by SkipperVGMBC on the 16th Oct 2016
Hello Skegness..I am using 2 E-Max GT2820/7 brushless Motors. These Are UK purchased from BRC Hobbies (based Northolt) Cost £20.95 each.. these are 850 KV..using Twin Mystery RC 70A Forward Backward 2-7s Brushless ESC (with Ubecc) about £20 or less on EBay (HK).

Run Time..1 Hour, mix of fast and slow Sailing..Depends on use.
Using 2 X 7.2 NMH Volt Battery 5000mah each.

She Goes Like fast, and cuts through water lovely.

monster at skegness - Posted: 1 year ago by skegness
Now that I done skegness lifeboat day I can get on to finish what needs to be done & hopefully before Xmas I can have her on the water,the crew at skegness loved the model as a whole and even the mayor of skegness liked it,but now time to get down to the nitty gritty and get her ready for the water.

Super restoration work, it's a keeper!
Response by shippas69 on the 21st Aug 2016
Hi. Is this the one that Peter Sneddon used to own? Seen pictures of her before and was very impressive at 9ft long overall.
Response by skegness on the 23rd Aug 2016
Not known when I got it she was a wreck,and I am still refurbishing her,I was told that it was in a garden for over 4 1/2 yrs uncovered in Scotland so I set about bringing her back to near on original state she was first in

The original builder put all interior in as per the real boat,but lots of it was broken off and just lying around so I repaired what needed doing then put it back to where it was supposed to go,I was very lucky that I know the original builder and he sent me the photo build of the boat,talus & carraige
Response by jarvo on the 29th Jun 2016
Has he seen the results of your superb resto work?
Response by skegness on the 30th Jun 2016
Not known,but he knows and congratulated me at a show for putting the talus back to how it was,he is on another site in which I have put photo images on and he likes what he see's
