Dont throw your tins out. by BOATSHED Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
I have been into model boating since I was 9 (1959) ans still enjoy it. I moved up to Heywood in 1991 and lived there for 2 years and as I had nowhere to do things there and take model boats to use them, I left them down in my Greenwich flat. used to see people fishing in Queens Park so I thought I cannot use a model boat on there. So I went there fishing instead and also went out to Pilsbury and fished there. I was living in a house in Wild Street Heywood with my Ex wife. (yes EX). We were just getting back together. I only wish I had known there was a model boat club that I could have gone to. I had seen there was a pond/lake in the grounds of Mutual Mill as this was just at the end of Wild Street. I once asked a man at the gates of Mutual is I was allowed to fish in there and he said no it's private. I have since seen in the angling papers where they have had fishing days there. And also since joining this site I have seen it is also used for model boating. OH what a bummer, that was 2 years of using my model boats wasted 😭. We eventually moved down to Greenwich and she now rents the Heywood house out. And I go using my model boats down here now and also use them in the boatyard in Potter Heigham when we go up to Norfolk to my river boat up there.😊

floating barge and another ! by JoNo Seaman   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi all, new on here and a multi-hobbyist ! I've just put a big pond in my garden and am looking for 2 boats to moor, floating in it (anchored), as a great feature! Both say 36"-46" ish long. I want to leave them out in the weather but not all year round. Looking for a nice canal type barge and maybe something else interesting such as a schooner or fishing boat/tug. Been having a look on ebay and popped by a couple of local model shops but nothing found yet. Maybe some old radio control ones (without working parts) or ones needing some repair if anyone has some gathering dust and needs space. All suggestions welcome - based near Windsor in Berks UK

Motor suppression by colinhubbard Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi all, have just finished testing the Caroline. Dry weight including battery was 13.2 Kilos. placed in paddling pool and she sits nice and level, I attached a set of fishing scales to the transome and tethered them to bench at end of pool. Slowly increased power and at full throttle gave a reading of 7kgs on the scale, at half throttle still showed 5kgs and water was lifting over poolside. Although pool is only 1ft longer than boat enough power to lift bow, in fact she tried to climb out. So well pleased with results👍. Battery lasted 1.25 hours at half throttle. So looking forward to her maiden voyage on Worcester Model Boat club open day, I feel like a 5 year old looking forward to xmas😊. My son is going to help me on the day as she's such a big lump, should realy have a slipway launch. Hope some of you will be there to watch. Going shopping now, fire boat needs a new battery for fire fighting pump. Best wishes Colin. (photo WITH BLUE BACKGROUND was before refurb)

Which Cable To Use by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Joe I guess this is a follow on from your last request re charging batteries in the boat. Your tandem is usually referred to as parallel connected where the positive terminals on each battery are connected together as are the negative terminals. This will give you 12 volts but double the Amphr capacity in your case to 24Amphr. Is this to be used in the fishing boat with the working winch? As Doug advised the total expected current draw will determine the cable required and you should protect this with a fuse in the positive lead from the batteries. If you can run separate cables from the battery to the ESC and the winch control then they will only need to carry the current for that device. Again each cable should have an appropriate fuse. As regards the charging lead this will be less than 5 amps and your SLA will have suitable leads. I would not recommend charging SLA's in parallel as in my experience one always charges first and the charger goes into trickle mode leaving one battery undercharged. I thinke you will need to have the two positive battery connections accessible so you can charge each separately. Halfords have a range of cables which should cover your requirements and also have fuses. Cheers Dave

Emily P II by GrahamP74 Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
This will be a scratch built inshore fishing boat. She will be rigged for trawling and netting. The hull was purchased on Preloved for £20. I will be making the model in the scale 1:12. All elements will be scratch built with the exception of the wheel house which has been moulded by Andy at Models by Design. I believe the hull is a Cygnus GM38 or very similar.

Help! Mystery Boat by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Brillo! 👍How'd you find that? Wonder what it sold for! I believe this is the type the old Billings Krabenkutter CUX 87 was based on. (Thanks for the tip Martin!) Think I'll do the Fishing version! The crab net tackle is a bit complicated, not my forte. Maybe down the line in a version 2 ?? Anyway my Sea Scout is the first on the slip but I've decided to use the Taycol motor for this fishing / crabbing boat. Now looking for suitable power plant for Sea Scout (24"). Any recommendations folks? This hobby never ends does it? 😉 Ta for help. 😎

Help! Mystery Boat by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi All, anyone have any idea what the boat in the attached pics is, or where the registration comes from? I suspect a south coast or north sea fishing boat - cutter?, English or German? In the bow there is a space (something broken off!) indicated as 'Gas Anlage' - sehr Deutsch! FE I would have recognised from Folkestone, my home-town but 'E' I can't find. I inherited the boat from an aunt who died last year, found it in her art studio, she was an artist and art teacher, had some exhibitions at the National. She was also in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest surviving paraplegic, paralysed in a motorbike accident when she was 16 and died last year aged 86!! Back to the boat: it's a bit crude and built as a static model from an ancient kit I believe. I want to renovate it and make it mobile, might be a better candidate for my renovated Taycol Target? All contributions gratefully received 😎
