You beat me to mentioning this, Doug You are quite correct the Boat Harbour section of the Forum is for members to show their finished models as well as give details of the power set up etc. A picture is really needed to show off the model in all its glory. If you are able to posts in the Build Blog section are very welcome and do produce encouraging and helpful responses from members, who also benefit from seeing how others tackle their builds. There are other specific sections where members can post to share experiences or seek help for specific topics. Some members use Tablets or Mobile devices to view and it could be Stephen may need to make it easier for these users to access the relevant sections and post pictures. All posts are welcome but pictures do add greatly to the impact, and I suggest that any member who has a problem posting, sends Fireboat, Stephen a pm so he can address the issue. happy building and posting Dave
Hi - I'm new to building - I have purchased MMM "Canning". I hope I can get some tips and know how from the many members on this site. - I have cut many parts from cardboard as templates. Looks like I have to build rudder and place motor in position before too long. Any advice gratefully received - thanks. Paul - Australia

Hi onetenor, I do have a set of plans available to me, but these days, sadly, due to disability, I am not up to building one from scratch. One member from my own club, and kind members off here have already offered sets of plans, which I have had to turn down, but was grateful for the offer of. I cannot afford a new kit (at approximately £200), so I am looking at a model to restore, hopefully, not in too bad a state. Best wishes, Dave W 😊
Hi nutrunner I used to live on the Wirral and there are several clubs nearby. There is one at E Port, they used to sail in the top lock basin on Sunday mornings. New Brighton has a club as does Hoylake, at the Lifeboat station and West Kirby in the park. Runcorn also has a club. E port cover a fairly wide area so not sure which of the above might be nearest. All have friendly members who will help you with your new venture. Dave
Welcome to the group, look in the club section for your nearest. Nice boat to start you on the road (water) to good boating. Please post pictures if you can. And don't be scared to ask for help. We have members who are very willing to give advice.
Hi Chris Probably easier to apply to the hull with the deck off. You should leave the deck join area clear to allow for the glue. The bottom of the deck will also benefit and I usually use a pencil to mark where the formers join and keep the coating off this area. If you are using epoxy for the coating and the joining glue this may not be a problem. Once the deck is on apply another coat over the joints to seal. If you could a build blog would be welcome and helpful to other members, please. Dave
