Sail Winch Servo Identification by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 20 days ago
It appears that Mr DH Andrews purchased a model yacht in 1991 that fits the description. But he no longer lives at that address. I found this information on Google. The yacht came from Germany but I couldn't read all the details. Hope this helps, cheers Colin.

Tempory computer by Colin H. Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi Ron, Thanks for your comments. The small Tug (EMANUEL) is 16" long, scale unknown. No crew as yet, but will try some of my model railway figures. The larger Tug (VALIANT) is 48" and is 1/32nd scale. But using 1/35th scale crew. As for your Gipsy yacht. I'd love a copy of your plans, could it be possible to copy and email. If yes I'll pm you my email address, it's quite possible I have a suitable part built hull that was donated to me at a show last year. Cheers Colin.👍

upgrading Turnigy i6 to 10 channels by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Doug I hope this works for Chris. My fellow sailor Doug has a Turnigy clone, can't remember the name but I suspect it's a language translation or typo error. You have, I believe, the German equivalent of the Turnigy so I am not surprised that your documentation is more precise. Such a pity that the translations often prevent users from achieving the full benefits of the otherwise very good kit. I am switching most of my fleet to the FLySky from the Planet kit I was using. Still have the Taranis Plus for more serious control but the FlySky is great for everyday two channel models including yachts and seems to run for ever on dry cells (as did the Planet) so doesn't need charging each week.

Marblehead Sailboat upgraded by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Doug This switch is also open to the elements. I agree it is a better switch than the slide version but will suffer the same fate on a model yacht in an exposed position.

Smitt- Zwatte Zee and Orinoco by jarvo Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Hans, following from RHB, have you tied Smit HQ? most tug companies help modelers with information, also who were Orinoco's new owners? have found a few photos of her on the internet but no information. I think that the hull was converted to a luxury yacht when she retired from service??? Mark

Re Boat Harbour entries by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
It may be the user interface is a bit clunky, I am very new on here and have found the drop boxes difficult if the model is a yacht rather than a powered boat. The photo upload only allows one photo at a time. On the Main point I agree a photo speaks a thousand words and is far better than just words however eloquent the author is.

Theo 2 by Sollis Petty Officer   Posted: 3 months ago
I remember sailing her as a kid with the Braine gear which I didn't fully understand She certainly had a turn of speed She had been raced in 1952 by her original owner and carries the Sheffield Model Yacht Club registration on her sails 1061

Planking complete! by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Finished “Costa” planking today and have put in most of the edge strip (need more strip, model shop Friday!). Jobs to do before I start the superstructure, finish laying out the RC components, fit rudder parts, make battery tray etc. Put in a 1/4 square strip around deck opening to prevent water ingress. Couple of coats of resin inside radio bay, 1 more outside, sand and prime. Sand, stain and yacht varnish deck. One question on a water pick-up as using a water cooled ESC! Outlet will be in the transom, does it matter where the pick-up is located?

Fender addition by boaty Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi NovagsiO Mums are really great. They know value for money when they see it and if they feel its too expensive they will find a way around it to get something better and cheaper. Good to see your mum taking an interest in model boats as well. Perhaps she could transfer her 😁dressmaking skills to making sails for yachts Boaty

Motor problem by RichardSReade Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
I looked at the Cornwall model site and saw that, what i have decided to do is to leave the two Ni cad batteries in situ and I have weighed the rear/mid section lead weight and it is just 56 grams heavier than the 12 volt 7 amp/h lead acid alarm battery so I will use the 12 volt battery and ditch the lead, the weight of the boat will be the same, I also trimmed the lead at the front end so the bow will come up a fraction more. I have taken the prop of and measured it to be a 55mm, so I am going to fit the water intake, hopefully with some advice from the forum "techys"as to the position, in the photos this is where I can fit it so it is out of the way of the rudder and prop.what do you reckon, I can then get a suitable motor with a water jacket which will be happy to run on 12 volt with enough power not to get hot turning a 45 to 50 mm two blade "x" prop, as suggested by pmdevlin, I may get the Lloydsman up and running as all that needs is dusting of and batteries charging up, (two 12 volt 7amp/h in parallel) and the receiver from the commander fitted although I have not floated it I bought it as a complete working model in 2015, so it is about time it came out of dry dock, also I can look to repairing the rigging and finishing the Odessy Yacht I bought at the same time as the Llyodsman also in dry dock.

new brighton model boat lake by boaty Commander   Posted: 5 months ago
New Brighton lake is ideal as it has parking close by and it appears to be very clean. Easy to launch your models as water level is high by having raised concrete walls around the perimeter. For speed enthusiasts there is a much larger lake on Wirral in Gautby Rd were I.C models are allowed and the lake also hosts an excellent model yacht club. Boaty😊
