hi boat builders
just a line or to about myself
many years ago i built model planes in bulsa wood. i have purchased a model boat
the h.m.c. "tracker" which i intend to build over the next few months in the evenings
instead of watching a load of rubbish in my lounge.
i am a keen diy er & fushia grower in summer time but needed something to get me threw the dark days of winter.
i am self employed repairing cars for a living which i still enjoy after 44 years.
look forward to completing the build & then go on to building MOONRACKER

i am still building moonraker, the project was always going to be a winter affair, due to my other hobbies.
due to illness this winter gone i am way behind with this build.
i have completed most of the hull section & got the thing water tight & motors fitted.
getting the boat water tight & beefing up supports around water inlets was very time consuming & slow
will be starting build again shortly
keep you up to date

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.
