Ray. That's a nice looking boat you have there. I bet it goes great in the sea, something that size handles offshore work really well.
​Sadly I do not want to purchase it but that seems to be a very fair price indeed for a fully equipped machine.

I agree with my learned friend, yours is a super model and well worth the asking price.

Thanks for your kind words, the Sea Queen is a classic design, Its a shame the kit + the running gear and radio (excluding the time taken) is worth less to sell than it cost !! but I enjoyed the build. Attached is me with my first Sea Queen with a different designed superstructure and a 35cc Impex 2-stroke engine at Danson Park lake Bexleyheath in 1975 it went really well with spray rails addedsh wd sq oct 16 005.jpg Happy Days

Hi All

Pleased to let you know Nick did a 450 mile round trip yesterday form Yorkshire down to Maidstone to pick up the Sea Queen, we had a good chat about the state of the world, and he endured the workshop tour and a cup of tea before he headed back to Ilkley, he is thinking about Zenoah power we will keep you posted. Thanks to all who bothered to view the SQ

Thank you Ray

It was worth the drive just to have a chat with you and a tour round your workshop.

I'm delighted with the boat, superbly put together with great detail. It's a credit to your skills.

I am a big Sea Queen fan. In my mind it's a classic proven good size boat. There's loads of room for running gear etc and they handle modern power really well. My current one is over 40 years old and now fitted with a brushless motor and 6 Lipo cells. I also bought her from the gentleman who originally built her. Unfortunately I don't have the time to build them, but really enjoy fitting and tuning the power unit to get the best performance from them.

Best Wishes

Hello Ray

I hope you are well.

Its been a while, just very busy at work. I now have a Zenoah engine, I am in the process of fitting it. My aim is the have the boat running for a trip to Scotland in September. I will keep you posted.

I have the boat on display, and admire it and your hard work often.

Hi Nick,

Glad your getting on with a proper engine! All good down here after the nail biter last night, I'm not really a football fan but we are all patriots if they might win

Regards Ray

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
