Smit Rotterdam 478 by sandkb Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 days ago
I've been building this Billings kit for some years now. [laid the keel in 2007 !!] but I'm slowly getting there. I've just recently joined this Website so not sure if this is the correct place to post some pictures of this build plus a yacht and steam launch. I'll start here anyway and no doubt someone will advise me for future postings.

Brentwood Model Boat Club by andycoburn Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 24 days ago
The Brentwood Model Yacht & Powerboat Club was founded on the 1st July 1988, with the main interest being model yachts. In July 2013, on our 25th Anniversary, the club changed its name to the Brentwood Model Boat Club. The new name was brought in to reflect that the clubs diverse association with all types & forms of model boating & not just confined to the yachting & power boat racing. At the end of 2014, the club was split into two separate clubs. This was primarily to allow flexibility to each new club to run things independently, as they see fit, to suit our vastly different lake environments. Both clubs have retained a common name & association with each other, but are now known as Brentwood Model Boat Club (for old Scale Section) & Brentwood Model Yacht & Power Boat Club (for old Power & Yacht Sections).

Looking Good. Eiras Park had Paddle boats on when I was a lad. Lovely spot and the increased size will be good for yachts and larger models Dave

Advice needed please by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi beez111 Welcome to the site. Just had a look on the Howe's website and this looks like a good beginners model, and everything is included. For the price it is difficult to beat. There is some assembly of the rigging and this can prove testing if your son has little model yacht experience. That said there are many model yachts sailing that have been successfully built by novice modellers, and there is lots of free advice on this site 😀 Is he an existing modeller, and does he belong to a club? Yachts require relatively deep water in which to sail so it is helpful if there is a local model boat club with sailing waters. This yacht has a smaller keel than some of the dearer offerings so should be suitable for most waters.There is list of model boat clubs on this site so you can check and see if there are any locally to your son. Howe's are very helpful when you ring and will answer any further questions you may have. I hope this helps and your son gets his yacht. Dave 😀

Advice needed please by beez111 Apprentice   Posted: 2 months ago
I am looking to get my adult son a model RC yacht for Christmas. I have seen an Aura 650 RTR sailing boat, which includes everything needed. Is this a good idea, or are there better ones out there, similarly priced (ie £85). I don't really want to buy things separately and need to get it online. Thanks for your help.

Help? What could this become? by Lemmerhengst Seaman   Posted: 3 months ago
Hello Grandpa, The grp hull is almost certainly a 'Cheverton Crusader' class yacht designed by David Cheverton. If you want to see many photos and a set of lines, go to the Cheverton website. (Google search) I have sailed on one owned by a good friend, a lovely yacht that really sails well. If you decide not to proceed with the model, let me know as I think he should make a model of 'Pentoma' as a winter project! All the bast, Lemmerhengst.

Sea Rover planking by tysonyoung Seaman   Posted: 3 months ago
Long planks best . Put a king plank down on fore deck first . This helps to keep things the same on both sides. You can start from the toe rail (on both sides) inwards with long planks cutting an angle when it meets the king plank. You will end up with few odd gaps .Planks used on the edge and sand down level is a useful tip. Glue used medium thickness superglue. Have just planked a 5 foot yacht - learnt a lot! -John
