    Batteries in a DX5e
    My son and daughter have been doing car drawing prints for me, but I didn't fancy the cost of ink. But I must say, doing an instant print to take into the workshop is a big help. I have the Matra almost done inside a day! I also have the fuselage part built on the Pietenpol. Very well designed kits. Everything fits a
    treat
    and very inexpensive. Shame they've married up with Graupner. That's just an excuse to put prices up. Martin

    Hey, what a coincidence John. What you describe is virtually what we do Use our rescue dinghy with an electric O/B and a Big Alloy Hay Rake. But we run it backwards. The electric O?B turns through 360 deg. so we run stern first with the O/B Pulling us and the big rake over the bow at around 1 metre down. If we get some real heavy stuff we have an I/C engined long handled hedge cutter that we hang off the stern and the rake catches it at the other end. Works a
    treat
    and is quite efficient and cost effective. Just needs some man power. Happy sailing Ian,

    Re: 40'' Seaplane Tender, new build E
    "I wonder if all of the filler dust could be reused?" Hi Martin, If at all you'd probably need a two part resin to set it. The 'dust' having been 'cured' once already would be more or less inert. So literally just a filler material. I used that trick once for an 'invisible' repair of a terracotta figurine for Gisela. 'Is 'ead 'ad fawllen orf โ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ญ I filed down some scraps of broken terracotta and mixed it with clear two part epoxy glue. Worked a
    treat
    and the figurine is still intact after several years on her terrace๐Ÿ˜Š Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž PS Now go and lie down in a quiet and dark room for a little while Martin ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ค

    Hi Doug, Well all that just flew straight over my head! Electronics is not one of my strengths. The question of IC type well I will post the answer shortly. All I will say is it works a

    Hints & Tips
    Would it be possible to start a topic on hints & tips in building? For instance I struggled for years with filler application , and when going through my old artist type oil paints etc to pass on to my kids , came across some old W&N palette knives. They work a
    treat
    from the very small to very large applications. Had bought a cheap set before leaving UK from one of those outlets that pop up from around Christmas, dug that one out and the broad and angled blades work well for the large applications. The flexible heads push the filler in very well and practically no wastage.

    hull trouble on vintage yacht
    Why would that be Colin? Suitably flattened off with wet n dry and then primed there shouldn't be any problem! At least I never had any. Mind you, I personally prefer to use the Deluxe Ezekote (Ezecote?) It has several advantages over epoxy:- One part so no messy mixing No rushing about if you put too much hardner in๐Ÿ˜ฎ Water based so no 'orrible pong and no rock hard brushes๐Ÿ˜† just wash 'em out with warm water๐Ÿ˜‰ Dries and can be sanded and primed in 20 - 30 minutes. That's what I've done with the wooden hulls of my Sea Scout, fish cutter and PTB and it's worked a
    treat
    . Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž
