17-28 Torbay Severn Lifeboat by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
Good job on the boat.Runs nice.Great sailing area you have.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 16 days ago
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.

Sea Scout 'Jessica' Sea Trial - at last! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
'Jessica is running really good.Thanks for putting all the info in the post.I'm sure it will be a lot of help to other modellers.Especially me.Good job on the restoration.

Hot tub trial by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
Emily P III looks good on the water.Ballast looks right.Nice to have a hot tub close by.I have to blow up a childs pool to ballast my boats.

Tamiya Tape! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
The Tamiya tape is great stuff to work with.I use it all the time. Just make sure you keep a constant pressure on it.Don't pull on it too hard.It does take curves depending on the width of the tape. Enjoy marking your waterline.

U42. by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 25 days ago
Very interesting model.It's amazing what you can do with imagination.Nothing stops you what is in your mind.Good job.

Stem Post & Bollards! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 28 days ago
That will be nice to see.I would go with the deck light and running lights.If it turns out to be a beautiful day you may want to run until dusk. Don

Stem Post & Bollards! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 28 days ago
That colour will give a nice contrast to the colours you have chosen for the Brooklyn.I have been waiting for your next post.Nice to have the weather cooperate for you to continue with the build.

Fun Run by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 29 days ago
Our club had our Fun Run today.We operate out of Humber Bay in Toronto whilr the weeds are down.The sun is finally cooperating. We have two ponds to run our boats in.The Sailors run in the big pond and the scale members run in the smaller pond.Attached are a few photos of the day.I must mention that the first picture is a new construction of a Marblehead out for a test run.The Canadian Coast Guard Ice breaker is totally scratch built with working radar and lights.This member works on his kitchen table.We found out later that he was born on a kitchen table.

Hull now painted by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Cheers👍to Emily for picking a nice combination of colours.Looks very good.

First Sail of the year by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
It was such a beautiful morning,a friend and I decided to go for the first sail of the year.Had to wait for the swans and ducks to clear.

Nautic by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Good job on the boat.Haven't seen one for ages.Nice finish on the deck.Has she been in the water yet?If she has,how was the run?

Just a gray boat now by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Good work on the boat.BTW saw the Lanc fly over our house on the way back to Hamilton.

Genesis 9000 by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I agree with the weight being shifted forward a iittle bit.Bow high in a catamaran will catch too much air causing the boat to flip.All it takes is a good gust of wind.Good speed on the boat.After trials you'll have a good fast boat.

Gypsy’s Maiden Voyage by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Looks nice on the water.Let me know how she goes tomorrow.Where are you sailing.

Finally a Waterline! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
I have used white pinstriping before.Plus I have used other colours too.Make sure to stick it down good.I first used my fingers then after the tape is on to my liking I used a burnishing stick.One thing I forgot to mention is start your tape at the halfway point on the stern then go around the bow and meet back at the stern.The pinstriping I have used is either the car striping or the one that is used for the model airplanes.

Vintage Aerokits Fire Boat by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
It's nice to see a vintage boat running especially still using the vintage motor.Nice area to run your boat.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
That looks great.You certainly work faster than I do.I'm not much in the rigging department.Maybe in the future I'll try.Again,good job.

Down at the lake by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Nice varied selection of boats in the water.Good sailing water.

SABRINA by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Finally had time to watch the video.Lovely model.Runs good.Nice job.

MTB 379 by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
It's great to see a restored model running especially when it's a boat that a family member built.Great restoration.

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Nice job on the deck planking.Rigging is progressing nicely.Very tedious.lovely work.

Our boating water by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
What a wonderful place to put your boats in the water.Lots of room.

Tug Serenity! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Excellent.Nice colours you chose.Love to see it running in the open when the weather cooperates.

Added some paint by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Wasn't that a nice snow storm?Interesting project you have now.Just getting some boats ready to sail.The weather is starting to improve.

Rudders and propeller by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Wonderful craftmanship.I had a schnellboot just a little bit larger.I used 3 speed 400's.Had no problem with them.The boat moved at a scale speed.That's one option to try.

photo taken of my collection 20 odd years ago by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Nice fleet of ships.You must have a lot of room for them.Must be difficult to decide which ships to take out for a sail.

Sydney Star by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Excellant job.Nice installation of the electronics.Great looking boat.

Edema-Ruh , Seaqueen by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
