What is going on here? by Grandpa Captain   Posted: 6 months ago
This large container ship just sailed in front of my hotel window, towing a tug boat, or so it appeared. But why? We are in Dobh, Ireland where the final boarding of passengers were taken aboard the Titanic. A lot of history in the waters of this Harbour in front of our hotel.

Picky picky 😉 The countryside down there is nice though. View from Blarney tower was good then - 40 years ago! 😎

You wouldn't catch me kissing the backstone of a toilet as that is what the Blarney stone really is.I know it is centuries since it last was used as such but I still don't fancy it Ta🤔

My wife and I are looking forward to visiting Ireland for the next two weeks. Could be a bit wet says the forecasters, but we will not let that dampen our spirits. Dublin, Dingle, Cobh, Belfast, Helen's Bay, Giant's Causeway, plus a few more stops. Letting the train take us around the countryside so we can relax and enjoy the scenery.😎😎

Are there boat clubs in Ireland? If so where? Coming from Canada 🇨🇦 and would like to meet some fellow builders. Is there a good hobby store in Dublin or Belfast?

Newbie advice by joergn Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Starting to build the boat, as static model. Chicken out. My base of operations lol Is lough key Ireland. Boat would not be really suitable for the lake. light hull small motor. Adding wieght would help stability but cancel out any performance. Might just float away, having me do bay watch rescue style, again. No thanks. |_| sank my 2L milk bottle boat 14/16mm hieght boat.

Newbie advice by joergn Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Hello jarvo. Many thanks for your thoughts and tips. I will post pics, true small hull. Major problem Is the lower deck 30/40mm height . I'm over In west of Ireland. Many thanks again keep ye posted Joe

Hello again!! Can I say what a great site! I have two Sea Queens that I have begun to restore, woodwork, painting, accessories and electrics are all fine ,I can manage.What I would like some advice on Is what size motors, speed controls and props to match to have a realistic speed. Both craft are attic finds and I would love to put them back on the water again. I am In the nw of Ireland so clubs and modelling shops are like hens teeth!!!! This site and ebay are my saviours!!!!! Thanks In Advance.
