LCT548 by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 29 days ago
That is an interesting photo Thanks for posting it.

LCT 548 by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Landing craft (Tank) 548 a world war 2 Landing craft with Sherman tank and truck carrying British markings of the divisions landing at Normandy. Landing craft is running 2.4 ghz radio gear with 3 channels in use. I brought this second hand and am steadily improving it. Getting the ramp to work properly was the first struggle. See photo gallery for more information.

JOYSWAY DRAGONFLITE 95 by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Wow thank you all for your posts, my problem was the technical description with not many pictures I just couldn't understand what went where and why. I shall now look at the links provided and hopefully be able to sail mine for the first time in over a year of ownership.

JOYSWAY DRAGONFLITE 95 by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 2 months ago

K45 8 rater yacht revamp by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
The first item is the deck, I was going to remove the white round hatch but the deck is so weak and flimsy without it I had to keep it 😡 Still, a wood strip deck is being laid direct to the old deck with the intention of a clear varnish coating once completed.

K45 8 rater yacht revamp by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
This is just a revamp of a second hand 8 rater yacht. I brought it as I really like these boats but it is a white boat. Did I mention White as in you can lose it in snow, White hull, white deck, white sails. Boring as heck but was used solely as a racing boat where as I prefer the real yacht look so a revamp is in order.

Beast from the East by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
I'm doing well tonight, One yacht sorted, one deck completed and new hatches to be made, Just a mast to re-align on the yellow one.

It was a good event, The guys from Shoreham are amazing modellers and it was good meeting them.

Help needed, running sheet to main by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 3 months ago
That looks right now, if the servo is a bit weak the yacht may need to lose the wind from the sail before pulling it tight but you may be ok as you are.

Shroud to Turnbuckle by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
I use fishing crimps. Very neat and quick.

For sale and wants update by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Would it be possible for advertisers to put a sold post on their adverts when they do sell as there is no way to tell if the adverts are current or ancient history.

rising damp by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
I have just checked with the owner and the receiver module is working again but the servo is lazy and has been replaced. The fresh water thankfully has not left visible deposits.

rising damp by Bryan-the-pirate Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
At a club sail on Sunday one member found he had lost control of his yacht. When it had been guided in by another boat it was found to be rather wet inside. the 27Mhz receiver was soaked as was one of the servos. A test with a different receiver showed one servo was not working. What is the best method for drying the components? The water is fresh so hopefully they will dry and work again.
