    Truly a sad day for the world.
    I have only learned through documentaries regarding the Royal family. The Queen's strenght, loyalty to her position and the world. Very remarkable.

    I have had nothing but admortation for this Lady that the whole world respected.

    My apologies if I have miss spoken or out of place.

    Thanks brightworkโ€ฆ
    There she sits, with all her gear in it. Ron, all her gear and ballast sit low in hopes of preventing a โ€œ bobbing boat โ€œ scenario. I spent a good year or so following you guys looking for tips and suggestions. I came up with a note book full of them. The only things to add are some trinkets.

    I started off with few pounds of stainless ball bearings... all I had, but not enough. I purchased a few bottles of copper BB's and just started spreading them out and then 2 part epoxied them in place. Once that cured, painted inside the hull Matt black. If I saw a shiny Spot, I had water where I didn't want it.

    Good day,
    My first build thatโ€™s coming near completion. The kiddie pool was used to balance it port to starboard as well as stern to the pointy end. Itโ€™s 36โ€ o.a.l. and weighs more than a case of beer. I do have lights in the upper and lower deckhouses as well as the deck house over the โ€œ engine room โ€œ and the spot light too.
    Iโ€™m eager the get around to the sea trials as I have never done an RC or scratch built boat before. I know she floats and I want to see it go and hopefully come back too !
    A 2 year project of working on it when time allowed and family life didnโ€™t get in the wayโ€ฆ.

    Lookโ€ฆโ€ฆ. I figure it this wayโ€ฆโ€ฆ..
    If your wife stumbles into your collection, and your buddies notice a new man in your wifeโ€™s life, something has gone awry. BUT, perhaps your wifeโ€™s new husband will appreciate everything youโ€™ve brought to the relationship prior to him.

    I hope he values the boats and a 10,000 + hot wheels and matchbox collection tooโ€ฆ. Or I will haunt his ass ! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Come on..... they all start talking sooner or later... it'll be about the garbage or weather or " how come ya haven't done what I asked you to do "

    That boat will last longer than the quiet spell... so who really wins here ? ๐Ÿค”

    Methyl ethyl ketone is found is abs and pvc cements. My question would one of these cements be better than the other ???? Would using a primer intended for these products be a good idea ?
    I do have a future tug project consisting of a 2 part abs hullโ€ฆ

    Brightwork, nice workโ€ฆ. Iโ€™m working on the same boat.
    5 ply Baltic birch keel & ribs. Basswood planking then wrapped in 3/4 oz fiber glass with bob smith 2 part epoxy. ( cover the sins as well as water proofing )
    Using a brushed 540 motor thatโ€™s approximately 85 turns, 1-1/8โ€ 3 bladed prop. Direct drive. 7.2 v battery. Now, I used a lot of ball bearings and copper BBโ€™s for low ballast and then covered in 2 part epoxy to hold them in place.

    Sounds like weโ€™re building the same size tub here, but mines coming in a lot heavier. After testing in the bathtub, I want mine to sit low in the water giving me less bobbing around.

    Thank you to you and Ron whoโ€™s in this already.
    Inspiration and motivation ๐Ÿค•

    I have a number of different brushed motors. Cheaper and because itโ€™s not a high performance boat, the brushed can motor seem to be the answer.

    Iโ€™m doing a 1900โ€™s bunker fishing vessel @ 36โ€ Long, weight is unknown. Iโ€™m using a 540 motor at about 80 some odd turns. 2 bladed prop with a diameter of 1-1/4โ€. Moves it along nicely

    But that was after trying different combinations

    I hear what youโ€™re saying these days. The only thing I can really suggest, make it easy to change out ANY components of the drive lineโ€ฆ.. just in case. Too fast, smaller prop. Etc.

    If you come across a chart for: weight, turns, motor size, scale speed etc etc etc. Tell the world !

    Good luck

    I have been down this road myself. I was told itโ€™s trial and error to find the right set up. My questions were: motor size, motor turns, prop diameter, # of blades on the prop and then thereโ€™s pitch tooโ€ฆ.
    I spent a small fortune on a large assortment of โ€œ inventory โ€œโ€ฆ. What I didnโ€™t use was stock for future projects.
    If this helps, Iโ€™d be surprised
