She looks really nice. How long did she take you to complete? Is she based on a fibreglass hull or are you working from scratch?
Well done.

As I am retired she only took about 10 months to build and is based on a "Models By Design" GRP hull. The rest of the model is scratch built. You can view her sea trials and more details on you tube.

Hi,
Can you guys these boats as a kit??
Looking for something like this, I can remember as a boy watching my uncle build them in Eyemonth in Scotland.
I now live in Australia

Thanks

Steve

Paula 3 - Posted: 1 year ago by ads90
I have had my Paula III for quite a few years and she was beginning to look a bit jaded, so having just completed my Northlight Clyde Puffer and looking for something to do, thought that I might give Paula a makeover. Nearly all the additions I made to her were from spare parts left over from making other boats. A good strip and rub down and a couple of cans of aerosol (colours chosen by my wife when in Halfords) and 2 weeks later - makeover complete.

My Timmy 2 - Posted: 1 year ago by Grandpa
Since one grandson had a boat with his name on, his brother wanted on too! This shrimp boat became Timothy's with a guiding hand from grandpa when at the lake. Tim is four years old.

I guess all grandpa's are the same all over, I have a 36" Tugboat named after my grand daughter "SERENITY" I know how you feel Grand Kid's are the best...

Northlight Clyde Puffer - Posted: 1 year ago by ads90
I have just completed my Puffer and am quite pleased with the outcome. The components are quite good but do need a bit of fettling but this is what our hobby is about. This is my third Caldercraft build so I am used to their quality and sparse instructions.   As usual for Caldercraft you need to have your thinking cap on as the A0 plan and the 'instruction book' do not match up but of course they do expect you to have a little bit of experience in model building. It has taken me about 6 months to build working on and off over this time. It has a large hull which is easy to house the motor, ESC, RC and batteries, etc. (I installed 2 lead acid 6 volt batteries, one on each side amidships) which gives stability and ballast. Being a large deep hull it needs a lot of ballast, even in its short length.I have only tested her in the big white nautical test facility at home so do not know how it will perform on our lake but hope to try it out on Sunday if the weather is set fair. Tried her out Wednesday and she sailed really well - maybe a little more ballast in the bow but not too concerned.

Enjoyed making this superb kit from model slipway. Having to cut out the polystyrene sheets proved to be no problem. With 2 motors and bow thruster, thought it would be good for the steering competitions, but its a bit wide in the beam for our rather tight course. Working searchlight and rotating radar.
