Site For Building Radio Controlled Ships from Scratch
Created by James Tuxbury
NEXT DATE FOR RUNNING THE BOATS IS AUGUST 29
We went out on August 7th difficulties from the get go, the new destroyer
started to leak big time but the pumps could handle it so we continued on our way. Then we got to the
Boat house there was a lifejacket that got tangled in my screws and they became loose, fortunately it
was close to shore. We got the ship in and put it on the dock. Earlier I had met Don Wilson who just
happend to be at the boat house and he just happened to have some underwater epoxy and an allen key that
fit the set screw for the screws. After the repairs were done we ate lunch, put the boat back in the water
and returned to the grand basin. We were pretty worn out but ready to do it again. Thanks Don.
Lots more to come next year.
This site is designed for those individuals who are interested in the development
and enjoyment of Radio Controlled Ships built from scratch.
Below are some of the ships that I have made over the years.
