Hi Ashley

Thank you Ashley!!!

The ESC and motor will get all the air from the open cockpit.

Both the ESC and motor do not run hot as we have found in our other boats including the cabin cruisers.

magnet clamping 5.jpgmagnet clamping 4.jpgmagnet clamping 3.jpgmagnet clamping 2.jpgHi All

I added extra stringer to the boat and started double planking the sides.

This is my first go at this type of planking, so one more off the bucket list.

I am using 10mm square magnets(one each side, brother they hold the planks together) with the second layer.

I started in the cockpit area because it was the weakest place and easier area to work.

Make your own contribution to the Website

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.
