Well done you. It certainly is worth persevering to get things right.... as I am finding building my first boat. All these things you guys show on the various’forums’ are so very useful and interesting. Thank you.

site surgestions by Fireboat Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 10 days ago
It's a good idea and I can see how this is useful on mobile platforms. I'm currently working on a new website so will take it into consideration. The new site is being built from the ground up to support any device and any screensize. One thing you can do on iPhone and iPads at least, is tap the top status bar where the clock is displayed. This will scroll to the top of the page you're viewing. In the blog section it's also possible to view newest posts first, although this makes less sense for forum threads so they're likely to stay in chronological order. Not at a point to release more details on the new website, but I think you'll all be very pleased with it when it arrives! As Doug says we are a volunteer run website, so sometimes things take a bit more time, but we get there! Thanks for the feedback. Stephen

St Canute build help by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Evenin' Richard, If you know the User Names of the folks just click on their underlined User name, in any of their posts. That takes you to their Profile. There you can send them a Private Message, just click on the yellow box at the top of the profile. To find old Threads (not 'Forum conversation' 😉): if you know the thread title, or even the topic, go to 'Site Search' enter the thread title or topic and you should find what you are looking for. You might have to scroll through many results! Happy hunting, cheers Doug 😎

Help Needed new Builder Billings St Canute by Richard7 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 22 days ago
Hello, l am very new to this forum and this is my first post so here goes. I have just started the Billing kit St Canute and l have installed the prop and rudder shaft. I found out that it is best to complete fig 1, 2, 3of the building instructions. But before l did that l drilled a small hole in part 53 for the rudder& prop shaft. Then glued all the parts. Before planking l cut away where both shafts, glued (2 part glue) both in place. My problem which l hope someone could help me with is fitting the M500 motor, as far as l can see l am going to have to remove a lot of wood from the keel part 00 and bulk head 5 so l can fit a support for the motor bracket as it looks like the motor has to fit very low so it aligns with the prop shaft. This has to be done at this stage as it would be almost impossible to do this with the planking in place. Can anyone help with any advise regarding fitting the M500 motor to the St Canute? Appreciate any help, thanks Richard7

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by kmbcsecretary Captain   Posted: 30 days ago
Hello all this is my latest build of the Kingston mouldings Bristol pilot cutter 'mascotte' was purchased from a forum friend who no longer had time to build it. Sadly Kingston mouldings has now closed down. The first job was to glue the lead ballast into the bottom of the hull, this was done by using fibreglass resin then a couple of layers of fibreglass to seal the lead shot into the built in keel

WTF by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Aha! A forum in my neck of the woods, thanks for the tip.👍 Seems the owner of the speedboat was praising the strength of his boat's hull, from the manufacturer MHZ. "Der oben genannte MHZ (Modellbau Hobby Zavarsky) hat wirklich gute Rümpfe! Mein rotes Schiff hat ein wenig graue Farbe abbekommen, sonst nix... " 'The above mentioned MHZ has really good hulls! My red boat only got a little grey paint, other than that, nowt ...' Following comment was- Ships coming from starboard have right of way, doesn't look good for you!' 😎
