Hi Captain,

Why don't you go for a proper hull shape? Flat bottom boats are few & far between in the real world 😀I

Vee shaped hulls plane better

Try Remora a Vic classic 😀

Not like flying models, no rocket science involved give it a go, I'm building Remora from Depron And glass cloth & epoxy for light weight construction.

Hi Captain,

You never stop being an aeromodeller, I've been slope soaring this afternoon, boating tomorrow 😀 Depron & blue styro foam are great for model boat building. I enjoy balsa bashing .

This is a catamaran I'm building.

Whilst looking on Modelboatmayhem's facebook group site, I noticed these two models built from Vic's designs on display at the International Model Boat Festival at Warwick 2019. Photographs by kind permission of Martin Davis.

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
