    It well worth the build and will stand up to some very rough weather as well as calm. I used a drum winch on mine . Sails were made from rip stop nylon

    Spray paint with acrylic. Dries fast and easy to do lots of coats. If it looks good on the water I'm happy.

    I called a friend,my son,who is a submarine and he gave 180 days or however long it took for the crew to mutiny! It was interesting reading up on how cans of food were stored. Thanks for running the quiz Stephen.

    You can also fit a micro servo into the shoulders with a split servo cable to the rudder to control the head movement from the rudder channel. With regard to the flexible arm all that is needed is to attach the hand to the tiller with an
    empty sleeve. No one will notice.

    We have all been Googling like mad! It seems as thought boats are passed around whether models or full size. Even if a boat is neglected there is always someone who is prepared to do a renovation.

    Today's answer was wrong. Gypsy moth 1V can now be seen near Southampton but that wasn't an option.
