    Veronica
    In the process of making the London Sailing barge Veronica.
    (Yacht) Wee Nip
    As before, different to sail a single sail as compared to a Bermuda rig . Still, it's fun and easy to sail. Cheers. Ken, thanks for the tip to send a picture as well. I know know how to do it, thanks To Doug. (ESC: Scratch build) (8/10)
    (Yacht) Wee nip.
    Made from plans, single sail, totally different to sail than normal Bermuda sail rig, but sails well. (8/10)
    (Yacht) Dragon force, micro magic, one metre,
    Sails well. They all sail well, depending on the wind (Motor: Wind.) (8/10)

    Hi Nerys, Alice, nice to see you again on Sunday, long time no see. Hope we aren’t in lock down too long.
    I’m lucky , I’m in the same area as the lake , so I can still sail there. What ever you decide to do to pass the time I wish you luck ,perhaps the Brecons might be good for a overnight stay in your camper, feet up, cup of tea, sausage roll, hehe. Anyway , take care both , see you soon.

    Hi Nerys, good luck this afternoon on your seat finding trip, as Colin asked, normal or swivel, I would think swivel would be better?sorry to hear your dialysis wasn’t as pleasant as expected, still, over now , until next time.
    Hope it doesn’t spoil your trip today.
    Anyway, cheers for now, happy hunting.

    Nice to hear it Colin, many a good day trip, with thanks to our local Maltby working men’s club, which my dad used to be a member..
    Also, haha, just thought of all the times when my friends and myself would walk into the back yard of the club, pick up a few beer , pop bottles, take them into the pub, and get three pence on each bottle, then we would buy more pop and crisps.

    Things we did as kids.
    Cheers

    Looks like a nice build Colin, she’s coming on lovey. Having Seen both motors in action on the water, the brushless is much more efficient. But I think you can still run them on your normal battery and charging system.
    No doubt I’ll be corrected if I’m wrong, lol.

    Reminds me Nerys, when I was a lad, famous words, hehe.
    Every year we kids would go to Cleethorpes on the east coast in an old coach for a day trip, organised by the local workman’s club, the were hundreds of us descending on Cleethorpes. We all had a packed lunch, and a bottle of pop. Some of the gifts we brought back where pen knife, stick of rock and usually a mouth organ. My dad would take the mouth organ and start playing it, very annoying.
    Thanks for the link back...
    Cheers

    Hi all. The first of my come back to the bench, so I thought, the wife wants the garage door open so the man doing the gutters, can use the garage as a walk through, because they are not allowed to go through the house, so wait now until they have been and finished the job, So I can put things back and regain my bench.
    Sorry all, the video I just made of my bench area is not playing??
