    Ripmax Tomkat
    Camera boat
    J Class Style
    J Class Style Pond Yacht - Rescued from the skip and given a new lease of life to sail again as "Rudder only" radio controlled.
    Swamp Dawg Camera Boat
    Quick and simple solution to save those action moments - Pair phone or tablet with GoPro camera app, or simply record with remote via wifi.
    RC Laser
    RC Laser - not a home brew of course, but for many years an object of desire due to simplicity of design, assembly, aesthetics and convenience. Love the Laser, but the Wee Nip still my "go to" boat.
    Mickey Finn
    Purchased original Rojair Mickey Finn from Ashton Models 35 years ago - hull suffered damaged so made a F/G mould before repairing and sailing. Made spare hull from mould and there she sat for 35+ years. Original Mickey was sold many years ago but as retirement approached the burning desire to fulfill old challenges re-emerged. So , after putting out calls for help, diagrams, photos or information on the model boat forums, thanks to "John Dowd" and a couple of other guys, I finally got round to resurrecting this fantastic 36" yacht.
    "Genie"
    "Genie" was classic Marblehead design from Vic Smead , she had a hard chine hull construction. Living in New Zealand in the early 70`s I ended up building 4 of these in total - only glad I took some picies. Long gone now, but not forgotten !

    Hi Roy - certainly a great little boat - sure it will be even better with your proposed upgrades.
    Brushless should certainly stop noise and help
    reduce vibration !
    Note - Video shows how well she keeps up with the Wee Nip

    On Bank Holiday monday 31st August 2020 , Buxton MBC put on a display at Buxworth Basin in the High Peak of Derbyshire.

    Ref Wikipedia - Bugsworth Basin is a canal basin at the terminus of the Peak Forest Canal. It is located at Buxworth in the valley of the Black Brook, close to Whaley Bridge. It was once a busy interchange with the Peak Forest Tramway, for the transport of limestone and burnt lime.
