Looks nicely made, shame the Port was stolen by Swansea crews. I liked her around Bristol . . . oh well will have to put up with the 2 Darleks and Sky together with whatever else gets sent our way!

Cheers

Hi all to answer all previous posts

Im pleased she's in Swansea as I drive past her twice a week,

She's running Mobile Marine Models shafts 70mm korts and T12 motors  there nice and strong but she wont pull her weight astern so with the help of a forum member in making a pair of shottles to use the same props and korts,


Both sets of props are prop shop there not cheep but, the 5 bladers were worth the investment the catalogue leaves a bit to be desired but there did reply to an email,

just the wheelhouse to Finnish now!!

Dan.

Here's a few photo's of my Portgarth model down at Roath Pk in Cardiff last Sunday when it was a little chilly and the water was rather choppy.

Hi there, I used five bladed props on my Kincraig which was also built on a Portgarth hull and she nips along very smartly. You have made a very nice job of her. great stuff.
