    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Just for the heck of it, I put the boat on a scale.
    10.5 lbs fully loaded.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    With all that gear on deck including the battery is the boat top heavy at all?

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    It doesn't seem to be. It will lean just a little bit during a hard turn. At least it looks like a slight lean from shore.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Got a couple of little things wraped up.
    The generator exhaust and the numbers on the side of the cabin, which I am guessing is for the fisheries commission. I may change them to black, time will tell.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    I just watched your video again and noticed the wake at WOT.  I really like how that hull pushes through the water creating a nice full wake.

    I'll have to watch it again, but I can say it's pretty darn stable.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Just a little update,
    I just ordered all the finishing touches for the boat.

    Life Rings
    Life Rafts
    Tire bumbers
    intake vents for the motor room
    Oxy-Acetylene bottles
    55 gallon drums
    Anchor
    cable Hawse

    That should finish it off pretty good. All the above should be delivered somtime next week.
    My extra lights came in today and have been working on getting those mounted.
    If you want LED's, one of the best places to go is "Radical RC". 4 LED's my choice of colors were 25 dollars. Per wired and all you do is plug them into a spare receiver channel. I also installed a mini toggle switch so I can turn them on and off. Next plan is the wire in a micro-switch with another servo to be able to turn them on and off from the transmitter.
    The only other thing I'm thinking about is a couple of 1/24 scale figures.
    Thats about it for now till Harbor Models delivers the ordered parts.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    I have been working on the lights. I didn't want the wires just running up the boom structure so I took another piece of tubing and ran the wires inside. Then just zip ties it to the boom structure. I had one light I just didn't know what to do with. The red flasher. So I put it inside the cabin near a window. Also just got back from Toy-R-Us where I picked up a deck hand.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Wayne,

    My wife and I have been in South Carolina for a few days visiting some of our grand children and our daughter and son-in-law. Had a great time. Took my RTR Aquacraft Atlantic Tug with me and my grandson had a ball running it around the pond in their addition. We really had a nice visit.

    Have just caught up on your progress and it really looks nice. Your Shrimp boat is really looking nice, you've done a good job. Those little finishing touches will really set it off.

    An idea for your light wires; how about just painting them the color of the booms and attaching them with grey or black cord similar to that used on the nets? You could run the wires up the side or back (forward side) of the booms and they would look like they belonged there. That way you wouldn't have that extra piece of tubing.

    Bob

    Hey Bob,
    Glad you had a good time down south.
    I really didn't think about painting the wires. Good idea though. I think I'll leave well enough alone since everything is mounted.

    Took it out to the local club pond on Sunday and everybody really enjoyed seeing it and it was pretty cool to see the booms and how they work.

    Those will add a nice touch a working boat shouldn't look so "clean"LOL. So how was it running with a few other boats in the water?

    Here is another short video at twilight using the lights. My daughter at the helm.
    I think it could have been a little darker.

    RE: Scratch Built Shrimp Boat.

    Looks great (and realistic) with the lights on but you might want to mount a mosquito fogger on the deck if you plan on running in the evenings.    This is Florida after all.  lol

    Hi Wayne,
    Awesome job as usual!! Just a question on the lights. I thought the green light was placed on the right side and the red on the left. You have them opposite.
    Thanks,
    Fred

    Just for fun. I turned off all the lights in the room including the computer and set the camera to take a night shot.
    And one of me just the other day.
