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.
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.
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.
A great boat to model, I remember it's regular appearance on the tv and the great mans commentary on it. "I and my son phillipe are diving to a reef........" A great memory of the possibility of adventure.
