(Pleasure Craft) SEA ROVER
Model was Sea Rover, built about 50 years ago with my father on the living room floor. Power was a Mabuchi 6/12 volt running on two PJ996 lantern batteries or two 4.5v bell batteries wired in series. Well before R/C. Finally gave ot aay to neighbours son and switched to aircraft for 40 years. Now living in Portugal and glow fuel hard to get so changing back to water craft. (Motor: Mabuchi) (ESC: N/A) (5/10)
With the size my workshop will turn out to be, That is a very tempting idea😆 Part will be for the restoration of my Billings sea Queen, and part for my other hobby of modelaircraft, I have a number of repair jobs due to the haulage company when we moved here to Portugal.
Hi All, Although i come from an aircraft background i am also into boating. I used to have a total of five model shops within a half hour drive to source my parts, before emigrating i had 1 who was mainly into cars so i had to go online. Now in Portugal I have no shops within 4 hours so have to rely on internet purchases.
The local water company were responsible for my cellar flooding and "drowning" my "Sea Queen", they said to claim off my home insurance. Along with loss of all my dark room equipment and my radio control gear and sundry other kit it came to over a thousand pound. it took over three months to sort out.
i don't know if you are aware that the "Empress of Britain" was later renamed as "Ocean Monarch" under Shaw Saville line from 1970 and was finally scrapped in 1975 in Taiwan. Good pictures can be found under the "Monarch" name showing the rebuiltstern area.
Martin, Please note that your comment about "no insurance" is misleading. All model flyers should be insured and proved competent by passing at least the BMFA "A"test. This is speaking as a former instructor and "B"certificate holder.
This type of "spam" is not unknown, in that you can be hacked and end up sending out Spam to all your contacts. it has happened to me before and to some friends. As advised, check your security and change your password.
Hi Folks, I don't know if it would work, BUT Balsacraft used to market a building jig for aircraft that used "T" nuts on the reverse and sliding plastic brackets on the surface. Could that be modified for boats?
