    Finally managed some "me " time tonight. Prop tube is in place and prop shaft plus prop assembled/ currently drying. Motor lined up from the spares box ๐Ÿ“ฆ and "dry fit " carried out. Next question ๐Ÿค”, where to mount the rudder? After a bit of pondering I've decided to mount this underneath. The thought process is that the rudder tube will be long enough for me to mount a simple mast topside which will then move as the rudder turns so as to give the impression that the wind is playing a part. Hopefully I won't break the boat with my next drilling exercise ๐Ÿ˜Š, pictures not available as having issues with phone ๐Ÿ˜…

    Rossm, a carbide drill bit for ceramic and glass, was used plus a bucket of warm water (kept my hands warm ๐Ÿ˜€) whilst drilling. No hammer action, just gentle pressure, stopping every so often so as not to excert too much pressure on the ceramic and also trying to preserve the bit.

    Good morning everyone, whichever part of the planet you inhabit.
    No time at the moment for anything else apart from work and home life.
    2 birthdays ๐ŸŽ‚ (wife's and daughter) valentines day โ™ฅ๏ธ and still arguing with DVLA who are exceptionally blinkered. I can drive the car, yet still not the coach. All evidence in black and white saying I was misdiagnosed, a letter from the neurologist and a letter from the GP in December, yet they want to write to him again. Crazy!!
    Apologies shipmates for my blurb, hopefully I'll get some "me" time later or tomorrow so I can carry on in the workshop.
    Now back to the hoovering etc ๐Ÿ˜‚.
    Have a great day everyone ๐Ÿ˜€

    A fun project to hopefully bring a smile ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜Š.
    Picked this up for the grand sum of ยฃ2.99.
    A "bit " unsteady afloat, however some ballast will sort this out. Initial problem is trying to make a suitable hole for the prop shaft in the ceramic. Think I need to invest in some new drill bits as taking longer than I thought it would. More to follow ๐Ÿ˜€

    Not much chance recently to carry out any more work due to workload and home life. A little bit more now completed, bow has been remodelled to as near photos I've been able to see from the "net". Safety rails for the stern made from scrap and masking areas of for spraying . Initial float tests are positive, no leaks and stable. Once the radio gear is fitted I can then see if I need to add additional ballast
