The deck anti-slip finish. by canabus Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 10 days ago
Hi Robbob I bought one built without running gear two weeks ago, but with a new set of Decals and new life buoys which I will make the locating bits as the old one's where only glued on. Half the bulb lights do not work so I have removed the wheelhouse roof. The grab hooks(which I have made), the drive line brushes required replacing so I replaced the shaft as well. Installed a Hobbyking 3648-1450kv with a 2 blade 40mm prop. I do not think my boat will be as nice as yours, but, I have seen a few bits on yours I can make, like an opening wheelhouse hatch

Ayton cross or as close as.. by sonar Lieutenant   Posted: 24 days ago
I bought a used hull of the Ayton Cross and look all over the internet for some plans but found none. I did find a lot of images though. I bought most if not all of the fittings and since have decided that the way to go is to make what you can from what I can get hold of. So all other model boats are and will be scratch made. I have two on the burner at the moment. Anyway some of the Ayton Cross looks right some of it does not. But I can always do it again as I hopefully get a little better. This one again is awaiting Ballast and it will be ready to go. I fitted two Engel 12 volt motors and made the mounts in grp then Laminated them into position.. Everything has been hand painted and slightly aged . The bow thruster was made using some household plumbing pipe a small propshaft Again home made and it works very well. Something to play with as I build hopefully better.

New Lake at Colwyn? by pmdevlin Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
glad to see that big lake will be back in use, I'm not that old, and remember the paddle boats there, then it all fell into disrepair. I take it the dinosaurs have moved out of the new club house! I take it general parking is either infront of the old bike rental building (from the prom) or up at the swimming pool at the top of the hill? Will this years mayors regatta be there? maybe I can bring my avatar picture some time!😊

New Lake at Colwyn? by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Today we started the ground work for our move to Llyn Eirias. The first two of 8 purpose built benches were concreted in place with the rest following as soon as possible. In the background is our centrally heated clubhouse, complete with full kitchen facilities and toilets. As you would hope, it is all disabled friendly. We are also working hard to fit out the lakeside boathouse with storage racks and a workshop. It is a huge improvement on the facilities we had at the old lake with it's open sided shelter and a small toilet once used by the gardener.

New Lake at Colwyn? by kinmel Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Access is good, club members can park at the lakeside , others must use the public car park about 75 metres away. The lake is open to everyone 7 days a week. Unless you have access to the clubhouse, you will need a second boat to rescue your model if it breaks down. Members have use of the clubhouse which has toilets and a kitchen, public use the leisure centre about 200 metres away. We meet every Sunday morning in winter

Richards 48" Swordsman by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I have both huntsman and swordsman, and visually there is no difference. I have been to many boat yards over the last 50 years and seen both of the real boats, and both can have open tear cockpit or rear cabin. The differences lay within. Nice model and I concur with replacing the delaminated section. I use fine glass cloth coated with water based resin to cover my hulls.(eezicoat) No smells so handy when working in the house and dry in about 25 mins.

Aerokits Fast Patrol Boat by jonbliss152 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi, I'm currently in the process of building my first model. It's one of my fathers that has been sat in the loft, kit form for 30 odd years. I have the decals to turn it into a fire boat but I'm struggling to find a suitable monitor to place on the coach house roof. Can you remember where yours came from?

ESC problem by sheaffy Seaman   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks for the reply, the boat was working and producing considerable thrust. for around 8-9 minutes, then fuzzed out..... We had a 160A ESC -> link to the ESC that blew. https://www.hobbyking.com/hobb yking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?id Product=45159 we had the esc set to 50% output anyway. so there shouldn't be too much of a problem. its a big boat, all fibreglass custom built. and houses electrical equipment so weighs a fair bit too. After the research i did, i concluded that the 160A ESC should be enough, however after looking at some equations, this may help? the motor is 2000W and running at 7.4v.. so acording to the equation, it should be 270£ or have i got this wrong? this is on the assumtion that it uses the full 2000W of power. DC watts to amps calculation The current I in amps (A) is equal to the power P in watts (W), divided by the voltage V in volts (V): Perhaps the AMP rating on the site is incorrect?
