I appreciate the comment Mate, but everything seen here is a result of being exposed to Ken Valks conspicuous talents.

Next spring I will go back to weathering, the outer hull has to be done then a coat of clear.

Still may put in a samson post and a tow bow.

Nice looking fleet there on your page
The danny boy was in the water last weekend for a trial run in an unfinished but running state. The running gear is in and all the other stuff Sound & smoke
were fitted for weight distribution. It runs great and will be a fine running model.
Plenty of speed from the 6/1 gearing. I am happy w/ the purchase.
I believe Mount fleet models are top kits. Hope they recover soon from their fire

The name of the little CC is "Off Road" San Francisco on the transcom it is 27" long and I believe it to be a Sterling kit

Tim those are some mighty fine boats you have there. You are indeed a master builder. Knowing your ability to build I am really flattered that you like the bullnose on my Cat. Beautiful boats.
