Hey Stephen, thanks for the enquiry, I have included a couple of photos of the products I used for the internal fillets and the epoxy sealer. Not sure they would be available in the US. I can thank Robcrusoe for sourcing this stuff as we were unable to obtain the products Gary recommends in his initial Irene build video.

Hey g’n’s,
not sure if maybe you were getting confused with the Emma, but Gary’s plans for the Irene definite call for the rudder post to be 1/2” forward of bulkhead number 5. Therefore I have positioned the servo back from that.

Ummm....yes, there it is right in my own video, rudder located according to the plans.
Now when I have these "senior moments", memory loss, confusion, etc., at least I'm old enough!

Whatever, sorry to mess the thread.

Deborah sailed again yesterday as nicely as ever!
While others blast around with intentionally noisy, roaring vehicles it gives me great pleasure to provide the quiet, graceful sight of Deborah gliding across the pond.

Hey Paul, wouldn’t mind seeing a photo of Deborah on the water if you happen to have one.

Well time to tackle the external finish, have decided on a black antifoul look to the bottom of the hull, a gloss marine varnish to the rest of the hull and cabin / hatch covers with a gloss white deck. Hoping that combination will give the look I am after. So at this point I have given the entire external hull and deck 2 coats of epoxy sealer. The bottom of the hull has now had 2 coats of grey undercoat ready for the gloss black marine paint. The deck has 2 coats of white undercoat ready for the gloss white paint. Note I have also done a temporary install of the bow sprit just to check the fit.

That's a very nice smooth finish.

We got in some close sailing on the weekend, taking turns with the Monsoon and Schooner Kamanik.

Watching the video later, I discovered a stowaway on the schooner.

Fantastic job on the Kamanik build, can only hope mine looks half as good. Love the stowaway, pretty ballsy.
Currently working on all of the spas for my Irene project.

Very Nice, Zbip!


Thanks for sharing the video! Very clear views! Kamanik came out looking so good!

Note to anybody wanting to build an Irene Schooner, you can build this boat!
She's designed for success without endless, tedious tinkering.

Mobius mount


Inspired by the videos I bought a waterproof case for my mobius. How to mount? I have a very strong neodym magnet which will lift an ammo case full of batteries. So I made a mount with magnet under deck and steel plate on deck with a short length of aluminium angle.
I'd seen a post with a clamp on gunnwall and spotted the crocodile clip hiding in the hut. I think the croc clip will be more moveable. Still to try it on water as weather here very stormy.

That's mine.
See this post: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=1125

The beauty of the little wooden clamp is that it won't damage the gunwale rail. I'd be worried that your alligator clip will chew up the rail.

The bolt screws through the clamp into any standard camera mount fitting and, when tightened snugly, there's no way for the clamp to slip off from the rail. I use an assortment of GoPro mount extensions allowing the camera to be aimed in any direction.

Like everything else, the inspiration for the wooden clamp came directly from Gary's brilliant designs.

camera mount


Sorry i should have given you credit. I take your point abot damage. I had thought of some material to safeguard the wood. The croc clip will however be moved more easily. Thanks for your help.

Was able to nip down to the jetty at any time to sail the boat. Could even have sat in the comfort of the cottage with the TX !
