1mtr yacht by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 day ago
I know one of my club members has a 1 mtr mahogany Yacht refurbished scratch built by Bert Smith 2010 for sale. Bert sadly passed away a few years ago but his yachts were all built to race and sail exceptionally well. If you are interested please pm me for details. Dave

Schnellboot & Fairmile D by andyhynes Petty Officer   Posted: 3 days ago
Excellent boats. i have scratch built a vosper 510 1/24 scale known as the long boat. Im also building a 73" vosper 379 which has become a bit of a project? Its a bit big and i am not looking for trying to sail it in my local pond. last time i tried it i nearly chucked myself in the pond to the delight of some onlookers.

HI From Munich by Hugh Seaman   Posted: 5 days ago
I was given a RAF crash tender kit many, many years ago when I was eleven, and a boy in Yorkshire. Now live in Queensland , Australia. I think it was a too much for me, and my Dad wasn't interested, too busy........ and well not a good Dad anyway. It was left partly constructed for years and then I completed the hull and installed an ic engine. Left for more years until I saw this site. Bought a fittings kit and now my boat looks very like others on line.still haven't sailed it, as more needs to be done. I will put up some photos soon. It is interesting to see the differences in the crash tender photos from the members. I guess it reflects our personalities and our boat's histories.

De-creasing sail by octman Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 7 days ago
I have some sails made from 50 micron film and have managed to put a small crease in the jib. Anyone know of a way to remove this crease, or will I have to live with it? Chris😱

Imara tug wanted by RallyeSport Seaman   Posted: 8 days ago
Hi Im looking to buy a nice completed caldercraft imara tug, I've seen a couple for sale, one was sadly in poor condition, the other was poorly modified to represent perseverance. Does anyone know of or has for sale an exceptionally built, ready to sail imara tug for sale? Id also consider a large modern tug aswell. Happy to pay good money for a nice example. Thanks in advance Dean

Some good on water shots. Nice large lake to sail on as well.

wardrobe by philpjuk Seaman   Posted: 14 days ago
Recreation of a boat built when I was 14/15 55 years ago,used a clockwork gramophone motor with the rudder couples to an eccentric on the spring box to make it sail in a lazy "S".the original lifted in the water but did not plane properly so seeing if 55 years later I have learned anything!.

blowing the dust off the fireboat by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
Hi Paul You are welcome to come and sail at Boundary Park with Crewe MBC on a Sunday afternoon from 1pm or Wed if you have a day off. Boat going well but I agree you do need a much bigger lake. Good to see that you are re-kindling your interest in model boats. Dave

Michael by Grandpa Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 16 days ago
[Score: 8/10] 18" Michael Capable of 3mph and a runtime of 30mins Single Propellor (3 Blade) Geared Powered by NiMH (7.2v) Batteries - Comments: I use two 2400 Wolf Pack battery sets one one each side of the hull to add ballast plus, B-B shot is glued in the hull for weight too. My grandson helped to build and paint it thus the vessel named Michael The boat was too fast with a direct drive so it was replaced with a 3:1 geared reduction. Runs much better more scale speed. The first motor made it look like a speed boat, which was dangerous if my grandson were to sail it.
