Hi, have just bought the Calder Craft Riverman kit and despite the instructions cant find anything relevant on the plans as to how to cut the hull, can anybody assist, not a novice and built quite a few but no guide anywhere either on the plans or the hull moulding as to where to cut it.
Cant find any email for them so cant have a go at them about it.

Hi Kevin, cant tell you a lot about it I am afraid as I did not keep it and virtually gave it away. As far as I could see it was as is usual the normal overpriced boat kit and nothing special about it really although there was a big bag of white metal fittings. The hull was a one piece moulding in ABS and as I said no markings that were visible as to where to cut it either on the hull or the plan. Came in a huge box that makes you think you are getting more than there is. From what I can remember from way back when it first came out the write up was O.K but arnt they all!!!. But dont think it is worth the money to be honest.
I have gone off the boats now and back to r/c aircraft and all I have now I want to sell is the Veron 30" Fishing boat Kit.
Regards Dennis Ainsworth.

March 1996, Riverman was reviewed in MB by Marion Brumstead.
If you contact customer services, photocopies/back issue should be available.

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.
