    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 made this kit last year. Most of the joints were glued with Expo super glue, the runny one, and Stabilit Express for the water tight areas. Nothing has give way yet even with a trip in a box to Hungary.

    Very nice work. Some of the blogs on this site are really good reference works for those, like me, who have a lot to learn. Yours are up there with the very best. It is a very useful feature of this site where you can print a full build booklet. Much better than the supplied instructions. Thanks for taking the trouble to do detailed logs and great pictures.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Did you say earlier that you were going to glass the hull or is the resin coat a substitute.πŸ€“

    Super job Joe. The hull looks really smooth. The wood looks quality in the photos too.
    When you get to the glassing, could you possibly do several pictures as I have never done this before. Can you advise on the materials used also. Thanks.πŸ‘

    We used to smear bedding off blue around the rubber eye rests of the tool makers microscope. Had some real laughs seeing guys walk around with blue rings around their eyes having no idea as to what was so funny. This went on several times right up until the Technical Director went to the scope, Boy did we all scarper. Best one ever but never again. He spent weeks trying to find out who did it. Some chance of that!!

    Good start.
    On the subject of cats, you can get over this problem by giving them a credit card each. I have with both of mine and now all that arrives on the doorstep is the odd mouse and bird. I am trying to retrain them to buy kitty treats instead.πŸ˜€
