Does anyone know of anywhere that will make an alignment tool. I need one 77mm long with a 5mm plain hole one end and 5mm threaded the other.

Neil - If you do not get any joy from Dave Milbourn's suggestion try your local model boat club or model engineering club/society. I have made bits (including alignment tools) for club members and just get them to put a donation in the Rescue Boat which is my clubs collection box, with donations going to off-set the cost of pond hire and insurance.

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.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
