Success Series Midwest

I am helping my son Aidan build his first boat.It is a kit by Midwest called the Yacht Skiff.It is the first success step.This is how I got my start,but Aidan has a huge head start on me as I really didn't start until four years ago.We got this boat from Rich Koll at his hobby store in Long Branch N.J.He is closing the hobby store part of his business down but says he is still going full throttle with Legend Model Boats,thank goodness.The kit had water damage so we got a good deal on it,for 10 bucks you cant beat it.

Awesome!

While you're not looking, he'll build an articulated, figure to row it and get it all RC controlled.

Controlled from his smart phone. All of us need to gain the interest of the youngsters if we want to preserve the art. Good work ck.
