If the boat has 2 rudders I usually install the props-clockwise on the starboard side and counter clockwise on the port side. If the boat has a single rudder-clockwise on port and counter clockwise on starboard.I find it produces better control when you reverse.
It's amazing that every club I've seen so far has problem with weeds.we use to have access to a reflecting pool with no weeds at a civic centre,But they changed the rules.Any water deeper than 2inches required a life guard be posted.When people in the condos saw us down at the water they would bring their children down to watch the boats in the water.At the end of the night they would thank us for entertaining their children.All our members enjoyed doing this.City politics is a b___h.
The most beautiful thing about it there is no fumes that your signifigant other can complain about.It can be used indoors even in the winter even when the furnace is running.It also dries very fast so you can carry on with the next step to finish your fabulous model to show us your results.
For people to occupy the cockpit I usually peruse the toy section of the Dollar store.Then modify them with Milliput.I don't know if you have any comparable store over there.It's a lot less expensive than the hobby shops.The other bits and pieces I just have to remember what cabinet and drawer they are in.
Tamiya tape is great stuff.Good job.I have used it for taping off water lines and anything else that needed it.Are you also doing a little weathering as you go along.I noticed some colouring on the bottom structure.
With the care you are taking it shows you enjoy this restoration you have taken on.I enjoy following all the restorations that are going on.It saves a lot of boats from just going into the bin.Carry on,it will be a beautiful job.
Enjoyable day.Light rain but lovely weather.Members from Kawartha Marine Modellers,Confederation Marine Modellers and Metro Marine Modellers attended.Wide variety of boats.Had BBQ afterwards.There is a couple of pictures of Springer tugs for people to have an idea what to do to theirs.
Doug,I have been following your posts.I have learned quite a lot from them.Too bad you are not here in Canada.I'm always trying to get more people to access the model boat website to gain more info on problems they may have.Also to see what other modellers are achieving.Keep up the good work,it is very much appreciated.
I find that when the boat is nearing completion I don't always contemplate that there is something I haven't thought through.Just want to get the boat finished and on the water. You're doing a fabulous job on this boat.Waiting to see it on the water.I have been following the construction.Excellant workmanship.
