Aerokits Solent (plan built) - Posted: 1 month ago by Skydive130
This is my just finished Solent built from the original plans and templates which I bought on eBay. Like many others on this forum, I have come over from aircraft, so that knowledge gave me s head start building this. She will hopefully get her first outing next week weather permitting!

CG-52301 "TRIUMPH" - Posted: 1 month ago by circle43nautical
This is my latest progress on the Barracuda RC Boats 52' MLB, US COAST GUARD "TRIUMPH"CG- 52301. I was up until 0500 this AM attempting to finish sheathing the hull. The deck housings are just about ready for paint. I really don't enjoy covering natural wood, but it's a must to achieve proper detail, I reckon. I'm awaiting 1/8" scribed sheathing for the deck, the fantail semicircle will be 1/16" sheathing, and the outboard perimeter of the deck will be 3/16" light mahogany strips. She's powered by a 775 Johnson-type 6-12v motor turning a 4mm shaft and a 75mm 5-blade Raboesch wheel. The 5-blade isn't OEM, but I reckoned she needed some extra muscle to get to the party in distress.

i have that same kit i bought just before my daughter was born in 1989. she is undergoing a "fleet rehab & maintenance"
overhaul currently. actually the first true rc watercraft i
started with, after a lifetime of building static models. that kit was of high quality, but has of course been discontinued some years ago. i transferred her from uscg lifesaving station manasquan inlet, new jersey, to uscg lifeboat station ludington, michigan, and changed the hull number from cg-44329 to cg-44345. i served in the uscg in nj, but always wanted to be stationed in ludington, mi. semper paratus!

Her Majesty's Savior - Posted: 10 months ago by RedRider
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 the 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!

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
