Currently working on CVA 01 Aircraft Carrier Furious. Radio Controlled. The length of this boat is 8feet, I have sailed it a couple of times but not in recent years. I have worked on it prior to and since my retirement 9 years ago. I have fixed running lights (leds) to runway but after moving house two years ago, havent had chance to work on it for a while. I have built from plans, first making a plug, then a fibreglass mould, and have made 2 hulls, one is the one I am still working on,the other one and the plug and mould, I would like to sell. (Wife forces sale). If you have any interested parties, please contact me. This is a magnificent boat but does need a very large motor to transport it to venues to sail.

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
