    I promise I will finish a boat project before I start another......Maybe.
    Members Harbour
    Pilot Boat.
    I have really enjoyed building this little boat. The painting, as always, I found a challenge. I am really pleased with the performance and the finished result. It has taken me around six months to build only being able to fit time in around a busy work schedule. Looking forward to the next one now.
    (Racing Boat) Genesis
    I bought this boat to give me some running time whilst I complete a major overhaul of my Patrol Torpedo Boat and build my Police Launch kit. I plan to try it for the first time next week in my local river. I would like to thank Doug (RNinMunich) for all his help to get the boat connected electrically as I have not used brushless before and needed to complete quickly. The boat is on it`s way Doug. Note. it is faster than 24km/h. Ran out of options. The instructions say 55km/h. (Motor: 3674 2074KV) (ESC: Hoddyking 125A Water Cooled) (9/10)
    (Naval Ship) Patrol Torpedo Boat
    I built the boat many years ago. I am about to embark on a full refurbishment. I intend to re-paint and add all new guns and deck items. (Motor: MFA Marlin) (ESC: Futaba) (6/10)

    I am doing exactly the same as you Doug. I am buying all of the items, including kits and machines, over the next two or three years ready for my retirement move to Hungary. I wish I could bring my factory machines with me. I have a 1 metre CNC machining centre along with a 16 electrode changer CNC spark eroder, Bridgeport mills, J&S grinders and others. I think my shed is a little small and possibly not enough power as the maximum single phase power supply here is only 32A. Small bench machines it is then.😊

    I have finally finished the new Shipyard. I had help to do the final build as it came as planks of wood. I painted the floor today which only leaves the outside walls to cover with a second coat.
    I will try to get a workbench installed before I have to go back home and work. This will be my retirement office when her in doors who must be obeyed says I can have the day off.
    I am lucky as my testing `lake` is at the bottom of the garden. The Danube.πŸ˜€
    I will buy a few small machines over the next year or so and then, hopefully, have a bit of uninterrupted building time.
    I have seen the lovely pictures of Colin`s new workshop but I would love to see where others do their work as well and the equipment used.

    I use Draftsight. It is a free copy similar to Autocad and runs almost exactly the same. It has been free for years but as of December this year, the basic 2d package will be about Β£80 per year. The new version 19 is also 3d capable. I will purchase this package for work and see how it looks. I currently use Visi for 3d but only as a viewer. Very expensive. I am told that One Cad can be a useful tool. I have not tried it.

    Ask the better half where they tidied them up for safety. Doesn’t work though because they always respond”should not leave things lying around if they are not to be tidied.😩
