Default ML Boatworks now has a new website and domain name! I need your help!

Hi Everyone,

I know this is a little off topic and hopefully is not in any violation of RC Universe rules, but everyone here has known me and my business for quite some time, and I need your help! As some may have known, my old website over the last couple of years was www.ml-boatworks.com. As of today, a total new website, and domain name are in effect! The new website is www.mlboatworksrc.com. The help I am needing, is if anyone who would, just click on the www.mlboatworksrc.com link, as many times as they want to help Google push the site up the list, and help drown out the old web domain over time. This is going to be a long and probably slow process to get the new domain where boaters outside of our small community can find the new site. I thank you so much for your help, and your incredible support for my boating products!

With that out of the way, I would like to personally thank fellow rc boater, and my website builder, Todd Fleury of Funkwerksdesign.com. Over the last couple months he has put together the new website. Once you see it, you will realize how clean and easy to use it is. With his continued help, we are going to fine tune the wording, and finish adding the rest of my kit lineup in the coming weeks. I am now the weak link in the chain as I have a lot of learning to do to continue adding items! haha. My goal was to have this up and running, at least in a minimal form by the end of this month as I am losing my old website/ domain on October 31. Needless to say, Todd went well beyond the minimum. Its amazing and I could not be happier!!!

Thanks so much Todd!

Hi Everyone,

This is my first installment of the "hopefully" monthly newsletter.

First, I would like to say thank you for your support of ML Boatworks. I
recognize a lot of the names on my mailing list! The site has had over
42,000 hits since it went online on October 28th. This has pushed the new
domain name up to the top of Google and has eased the transition. While I
have not mentioned it, you can also access www.mlboatworksrc.com by using
www.woodrcboatkits.com. I am hoping that name will help guide wood boat
builders to the site.

Second, if you have completed your build, or have cool build pics, feel free
to email them to me at jamesmluszcz@hotmail.com, and I will try to add them
to the website under the hull catagory.

And Finally, I would like to mention some new products on the website, and
coming soon.

1) The 1/8th scale Hydroplane trailer is now finished and ready for cutting.
A lot of people have asked for it for over 2 years, and its finally done.

2) I was very fortunate recently. John Finch, designer of the 32" Wild Thing
Vee bottom Mono hull has given ML Boatworks rights to create a laser cut
kit! This is a very well known, and tested hull, and should be a great
addition. It will be available as the original 32" Nitro, and then I am
adding a 32" FE, and 36" FE version.

3) I now offer raw, uncut plywood and basswood sticks so Scale Hydroplane
kit customers can add these items to their order to ultimately save on
shipping costs by purchasing all items though one online source.

4) I was contacted by Glenn Quarles of Nova Rossi last month and he is
finalizing the testing on his .12 size "Texan" rigger, and plans to send the
hull to me to make it into a kit form and will be offered on the website.

5) The GSX480 gas sport hydroplane is close to completion and initial
testing. Dick Loeb, Dist 12 IMPBA member, and president of ODMBA in Suffolk,
VA is doing the rigging, and testing. I am finalizing the cowling plug this
week, and should begin the mold process next week. I hope to have this kit
ready for release by the first of the year.

6) Anthony Marquart of Charlotte, NC worked with me on 31" Sport Hydroplane
utilizing the ML Boatworks GP cowling/ center section shape, with his own
spin on sponson design. This kit, and the GSX480 both share the first "Truss
System" center section framing. It is truly revolutionary as it allows for a
much wider engine well, and higher overall strength! This kit is now
available in the Sport Hydroplane section, and is built specifically for .21
nitro engines. It is called the AJM21.

I hope you all enjoy your holidays, and hope to talk to you all soon!

Mike Luszcz, ML Boatworks

Mike, you really ought to do your build thread of your sport gas hydro on here as I've been following it over on the Dock and you're doing a great job on that. Build threads are encouraged on this site.
John built a great hull, 2 of my friends made them and Grimmie made a .12 version for me before his AquaCraft days, it's simple, easy to build and great handling boat.
It'll be interesting to see what Tony came up with, we've both been messing around with .12 'riggers for many years so he's moving up.
Glenn's been building fast boats for a long time so that'll be another I'd like to see when it rolls out.
The 1/8-scale trailer will really add points to those in Concour's.
