    I saw this boat in Montauk, NY. she is called the rollover boat as she can right herself when rolled over or pitch-poled in heavy seas. https://uscg44363.com/portfolio/44-foot-motor-lifeboat/ The USCG would do routine rollovers just to train recruits. She could also survive a pitchpole!! They don't do that anymore as a rollover would cost over 10 K US The tragic demise of 44300, February 12, 1997, in she which survived three roll overs and a beaching with the engines still running๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I picked up a box of scrap from a partially completed build. This is a Scrap Build not a Scratch Build. There is enough template scrap left over, so i was able to fabricate the necessary parts. Time will tell๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Now that she is finished, a couple additions: Mast and running lights. Working radar Flags and decals of USCG Patches Water cooled ESC and Motors. I bought this vessel on a whim, I have grown to love her๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    This is a model I picked up at a Tag Sale some years back. I think I paid $2.00 for it. It is as I bought it, I did nothing to it.

    Fantail Launch
    Fantail Launch Kit bought on ebay. Only problem was, the box only contained scraps and the plans. Being stubborn as I am I decided to build it any way๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ The plans did not call for a mahogany deck, I decided to dress her up

    Hi Dave,
    I too like Triumphs.
    I had a 66' 650 Bonneville that I bought as a basket case. Later a 69' 750 Bonnie.
    Prior to that I had a 750 Norton Commando, punched out to 850 with a 3/4 race cam.
    Now I have a 2013 Harley Breakout.

    Funny you should bring that up, Stephen๐Ÿ‘.
    I am also addicted to trains. HO gage being my focus.
    I only have them on display, as I don't really have the room or the time for a layout.
    I collect the trains, build what is necessary. I build the buildings from kits and light them up.
    I will follow up with pics.

    Hi Garth,
    Do you have any pics of your Seguin?
    I would be very interested.
    I have used pics from other builds to refine my Seguin.
    And yes the lifeboat will most probably not be covered.
    It was only $30. US from China, which I thought was reasonably, considering the detail.
    Once I started building, I cursed the detail๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

    Trimmed out the cabin doors. 16 pieces for each door, two of which are hidden.
    Started trimming out the front of the cabin.
