Yippee!

I won some trophies at the annual regatta!


I went to the "Inland Nautical Society" of Riverside, California annual Fall Regatta yesterday with two of my model boats. I had my "Dutch Sloep", a work in progress; and I had my "Canadian Coast Guard 47' Motor Life Boat".

I drove both boats in the Navigation Course competition.

I won First Place in the Navigation Under 36" category with the Dutch Sloep.

I won Second Place in Scale Military with the CCG 47' MLB.

Sorry, I have not checked in here for awhile.

Well, the Beater Bird has not been touched since my last update. I have been swamped with other stuff to do, and now with the holidays here my work table (the dining room table) is off limits until January.

Congrats on the awards for your ships. Well deserved.

I have been wanting to get into an RC ship, possibly something in sail and something with a motor, too. Trouble is, I know nothing about sailing. Built a few boats in my time, but all have been static scale models so far.

hey KMOT, where did you get the extra bumper rail for your Canadian Coast Guard? the ones you put over the white stripe?

The bumper rail on my US Coast Guard fell off somehow in the lake and am looking to replace it.

oh and what is it called? I keep calling it the rubber sealant.. but thats not it...

Thanks
