Detailing the deck. by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 hour ago
Excellent work and progress.The deck looks great.

Ionia by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 12 days ago
Nice work on the tug.👍Great seeing the boat on the water that isn't frozen over like we are up here.😤

Build Finalized by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 13 days ago
Nice clean build.It will look good on the water.Great job.👍

San Pedro by Harbor Models! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 days ago
That is a great looking tug.Go for it.Judging by what I have seen you accomplish on the Brooklyn,this will be another beautiful build.

Propellers by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Looking at the stern of the boat and you have 2 rudders. The port prop should be counter clockwise and the starboard one clockwise.If you have only one rudder then the port is clockwise and the starboard one is counter clockwise.

Reassembly by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Nice job.Looks really good. Don

Cabin detail part 5 speed control & compass by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Excellent craftsmanship.I envy your skills.Fabulous.👍👍👍

Pilot House Structure by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Coming along nicely.That's the thing with Springer hulls.The superstructure is not confined to one style.One of our members in the club had one hull but three different superstructures.He was able to change them throughout the days sailing.

Power switch location / mount by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Great progress on the build.I like your idea on mounting the switch.Looking forward to the completion of the build.

Propshaft Lubrication by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I have changed over to the ProBoat Marine Grease.It comes with an injector that screws onto the tube.Very happy with the product.Just one idea.

Happy new year by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Happy New Year to you,Marky.All the best for the coming year. Happy New Year for all.

fuses by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Before going to the expense of new esc's.Check the current draw when the boat is in the water.I should have mentioned that sooner.

fuses by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
When I had a Schnellboot it was 1/31 scale and I used Speed 400's.My esc's were 50 amp.I had no problem.Once you put the boat in the water there is more resistance on the props.With that there is more current draw.Maybe look into getting a higher rated esc.

Oh, NO Water Everywhere! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I remember a few years ago that I was excited to get the boat finished and I went to the pond.Put the boat in the water and ran it for awhile.Brought it back in and opened up the superstructure only to find quite a bit of water in the bottom.I was in a rush and forgot to grease the stuffing tube.One thought for you.

Cooling coil by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
All the cooling coils I have seen,do not have the coils soldered together.On all the ones I have weren't soldered.They all provide the cooling very well.

Early Christmas present. by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago

Miss Doris by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Like has been said,Miss Doris looks great on the water.She runs great with the ability to manouver very well.Good for steering competitions.

Thornycroft MTB by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Nice job.Great to see a boat running built from a Vic Smeed plan.Should do good in a steering competition with the manouverability you have.Lovely boating pond.

First Snow! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Beautiful job on the Brooklyn.The colours really suit it. We are waiting for the snow to hit here also.

A Birthday Wish! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Yes,Happy Birthday.As Colin says,Leave the singing to the children as it means a lot.They sing it with love.Enjoy your day. BTW wish I was 57 again,going on to 70 this week. Don.

"Surfury" Stern Name by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
The boat is taking shape nicely.Instrument panel looks great.

BRAVE BORDERER - BRUSHLESS SUMMARY by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Great idea using separate feeds.One less worry.👍

The Skipper and Crew! by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
That's where the skipper of my Jersey City got to.He must have known one of the Police "Ladies" was going to be part of the crew.

HMS Campbeltown 1941, 1/96 scale by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Your ship is coming along nicely.Good job.

more money than sense. cleats by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
I believe the round end towards the bow.That's what I have seen on the big boats.

USCG POINT GLAS by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Good idea boxing in the ballast.Even bagged sometimes moves around.Lovely looking model.Great job.

RAF Fire float by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Lovely restoration.Great job.👍

Rudders and Propellers by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 4 months ago
Excellent work.Especially like your metal work.Great job.Looking forward to see it finished and running.

105ft Motor Minesweeper by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Great job.Looks like with the 3D printer you will have the boat finished a lot quicker than I can.Nice to be able to use modern technology for your build.The details so far look good.Will look forward to more details being added.
