First of all how are all you gentlemen going on?, well i hope?, like a bad penny i keep turning up.
Unfortunately i sold all but two of my boats because health dictated it, and now i've got another hurdle to jump over "Figuratively speaking of course".
I have no plans to build any more boats but i will pop in from time to time to see how you are all going on.
Been very ill, and at one time i thought my number was up from a heart attack, never rains but it pours hey?.
Got over that now it turns out i've got a compressed disc in the base of my spine "Rolls eyes", and am down for an operation.
Anyway guys take care

Tony

Thank you matey Very Happy. No still stuck here in good old blighty. Moved to a new flat, the penthouse we call it Smile so much bigger than our old rat trap lol!

I'm still in range of "Victoria Park" where the pond is, and as i said i kept two of my boats, the "PT 109", and a small "Rotterdam" Fire tender that i got for £15. bit of work doing on it.

I can carry the PT 109, and the Fire tender on my Mobility Scooter, and get off down to the pond lol!

Cheers

Ahhhh now that seems a good idea Damian but i don't think my scooter is strong enough to pull a trailer.
It is only a small one, and is capable of 4 MPH.
If i could build or find a trailer that was light enough?, my boats don't weigh anything, i will give it some thought.

Here's some food for thought .



It started out as a trailer for 2 kids behind a bicycle I stripped it down and added rails to locate and secure the boxes to house the models in transit.
This next pic shows it loaded to go 2 streets away for a community house display day.



I don't feel it behind me and it doesn't alter the battery life per charge.
An old golf cart would also work.

Well that's amazing Damien. I've been thinking?, the Pond is about 2.25 miles from me (Round trip) i've got two new batteries in the scooter so i believe it could handle it. The scooters range is 9.7 miles, do the math.
The deciding factor would be weight of course but i shall keep my eye out for one of those trailers, and cut it down, and the biggest boat is the PT 109, it's not that heavy, and comes in it's own box.
Oh! what's that boat you have on the trailer?.

Tony,
The one without a box is a 28" tank landing craft from a Glynn Guest plan, the 2 boxes contain a 24" seaport tug the other a 3ft sub chaser also from a Glynn Guest plan.
