Sea-Lite by Mids-Phil Petty Officer   Posted: 6 days ago
[Score: 5/10] - Comments: Acquired this Sea-Lite sailing yacht as a project. Everything works after a fashion but based on mixed reviews the intention is to replace the radio gear, winch and rudder servos and increase the keel weight

vice suitable for Dremel Workstation by octman Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
Good morning folks, I have a Dremel Workstation, or drill stand as I call it, and would like to get a small machine vice (is that the correct name?) to go with it. I have seen a few smallish ones but they are usually too big to bolt to the base. Can anyone out there offer any workable suggestions please? Also, is the material the vice is made from of make any relevance at this small size, i.e. is cast aluminium any good? ( I had a screw-on table top vice made of cast aluminium which snapped in half the first time I used it.) I feel the need for this vice as I am about to drill a 1mm hole in a model yacht's mast to locate the boom vang and with my shaky hands it could end up being big enough to pass the boom through without some sort of support!! Chris

Bowsies are easy to make. I've had DF65 ones break so I 3d print my own. I've also made them out of servo horns for other boats and one guy at our club uses buttons. Not sure how race legal they are, but since I don't race it doesn't matter to me.

Yacht Suppliers by Nerys Lieutenant   Posted: 30 days ago
In my experience this is true of any kit and from what I hear, flat pack furniture.

Yacht Suppliers by Ianh Lieutenant   Posted: 30 days ago
It is amazing that companies that supply almost RTR Yachts don't think. What comes to mind on Joysway, Thunder Tiger and Kyosho is that it needs 12 Bowsies that's all you get! They should add a few extra screws and Bowsies it literally cents to them. I dropped a bowsie off the bench when I rigged the DF 95 black bowsie, black tiled floor don't go together, found it after about 10 minutes of cussing. One thing Joysway did on the DF 95 was give you about an extra metre of Dyneema. TT and Kyosho I think they must supply it to the exact mm! And no spare Stainless Self Tappers if the yacht needs 12 you get 12.

Broads River Cruiser Yachts by ChrisG Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
I have only just come across these build photos and must say I really do admire both yachts the one shown sailing with the dinghy behind it particularly. I am not surprised that you were overwhelmed with request to buy the kits, to me they are simply lovely. I have a friend who purchased a real one some years ago and had it shipped to Leics and it was on the River Soar, lovely thing with a cabin roof that could be raised for headroom and canvas cabin sides. I am sure there would be lots of interest if you resumed production. Best regards Chris G

Sea Queen by BOATSHED Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago, I am not so sure about being less detail on a Norfolk Broads Cruiser. I have a small 21ft fibre glass hulled boat in Potter Heigham on the Broads. But when you see the older wooden Broads Cruisers they have lots of detail especially the ones that get cared for as they should being wooden built. Some of them are so beautiful and well varnished polished brass, Chrome fittings and well groomed. If I could afford a wooden cruiser and be able to keep her in the fashion she should be kept then I would. But if I win the lottery then I will have one. Even the old wooden sailing yacht's are kept in wonderful condition and lots of detail brass etc.

general help by Philg7mwh Apprentice   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi All, i know i'm doing this back to front, but decided to build a yacht, just over 40 inches long, i have no plans and no idea what i'm doing, but i have so far made the hull, i sawed up some scrap wood for planking and have it resined so the wood shows through, will glass the inside, i'm about to construct a cantilever keel, should be fun, have aluminium mast and boom, think that's what its called, what i want are recommendations as to where to buy things like goose necks and all the other paraphernalia mail order if possible in the UK. thanks Phil
