    (Yacht) Victoria Yacht
    Not the greatest looking boat available , but a lovely boat to sail. I had no experience of sailing before buying this, but was able to get the basics mastered quite quickly and I'm still learning. It is a lovely boat to sail and copes with a wide range of conditions. After the speed of the other boats I sail this is very peaceful and relaxing. (9/10)
    (Pleasure Craft) Fairey Sea Swordsman
    this is a project that has only just started, and may take some time to complete. have done some research and found info online for the Huntsman, but none have a roof on the top. So will have to do my best to restore what is there. Fibreglass hull with wood deck and cabin.Will post updated pictures as she Improves. Have now found from online research that it is in fact a Sea Swordsman. so the fun begins. (3/10)
    (Tug Boat) Riverman Tug
    Built by my father in law, from a Caldercraft kit. Considering the terrible quality of the kit he has done well to make it look as good as it does. It took a lot of work just to get the hull watertight. He built it because his family used to work on the water. (Motor: Standard 540) (ESC: Mtroniks viper marine) (8/10)
    (Fire Boat) Fire boat
    A project that I inherited from a family friend. More work was done by my late father-in-law. Now its finished, and runs like a dream. thanks to advice from the members of this site. Kept blowing fuses so upgraded to 25 amp Viper. The set up it has allows it to plane at what looks like a realistic speed. (Motor: Graupner Speed 600) (ESC: Mtroniks) (9/10)

    I assume this event was canceled as we had snow. if it was and is rescheduled will you let us know as I was looking forward to seeing it but didn't want to chance a trip to Dover in the snow.

    I found this website when trying to help my father in law with his models. Now unfortunately he has passed away. But the boats live on with me, and thanks to advice from the members of this fantastic site. I thank you all, and look forward to building and restoring many more boats.

    HI All
    I have been trying to complete a fire-boat that was started by a friend of the family, when he was a boy many years ago. He started It with his Dad, but never completed It. My father-in-law then took over, but unfortunately passed away soon after. Now It Is up to me to finish It for them. I have found most things I need, using Info from your site, but I'm having trouble finding a spray paint In battleship grey! There are plenty of grey paints for cars(real ones) but don't know which to choose. Also can I buy a 1/16 scale davit, or do I have to make one? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Mark.
