    Ok, I've got a good idea where I"m headed with the Dauntless. So where does my mind turn to? But to a second boat idea, after many questions about what would happen if the Dauntless got stuck in the middle of where ever I'm boating. So I've done some looking and it turns out that they don't make the Jim Wilder Tug any more which stinks because I know someone that had one growing up.

    So after much looking, I'm almost settled on the Paul P. Hastings Tug. It is put out by a outfit in Canada, so I figure sometime this year I'll get around to buying it and starting it. Here is a picture of the boat. Instead of Santa Fe, I would put the C&O logo on it.

    Well its amazing what you can do in about 30 minutes. Paint wood needed for toe rail, and install half of it. And that is all I have time for tonight.

    Very cool. The toe rails add so much realism, I need to add them to mine someday.

    I think I remember Rich used HO scale rail road track epoxied, sanded and painted on his Dauntless.

    True, it was either HO or N-gauge. I'm not sure of it right now, but I had bought the wood to use for trim around the cabins but I didn't like how it looked/worked out so. Instant Toe Rail! A healthy dose of wood glue and away we go, we'll see if it bites me later. But for now it's wood glue.

    John,

    Your toe rail looks good tome, better than the 'n-o-n-e' that I have. Just commented on Riches. After you get yours finished and painted it will look great.

    I used HO scale rail on mine but I keep looking at it thinking N would have been better! The HO is also a bugger to bend nicely round the bow.

    Hi mini,

    The toe rail doesn't need to go around the bow.

    Well, that question is cleared up. I thought it was HO, and now I know.

    The toe rail ends where the bowlip begins.

    Rich.

  13. #5113
    Ah that explains it, I didn't model the bow lip. Thought it looked sleeker without................I've still not got my new motors in yet, to much time spent on the big boat fishing!! but when I get back from England I'll spend some time on her and get a few other things straightened out. I bought a pair of computer cooling pumps and will fit those in an effort to protect the new motors

    Very nice Rich.

    I hope all had a nice Fathers Day today, I know I did for the most part. My oldest Son and I got to take the boat out again today. So that was great. Now for the downer of the day, putting the boat away. Lift it and the stand up off of the wagon and turn around to go into the garage and... BANG! Put the stern right into the corner of the '65 Mustang in the garage.

    I now had a dent/crack on the starboard side at the stern. Right at the corner, at the water line! I'm not sure if this is going to a sand and epoxy, or sand wood putty then epoxy, or wood putty, the just about three coats of paint. Any advise would be nice guys.

    Yo John,

    Sand the damaged area and fill it in with some 5 min epoxy and let it cure..then sand it even and repaint the area....this is an easy fix..

    I hope the Mustang is ok!!! It's not as easy to fix the paint on that..

    -Rich.

    Recently borrowed another modeler's idea for making up some window blinds. Still need to install them inside the cabin and see how they look...

    Yep I don't think Big D had blinds, but they did have them in some S & S concept drawings. If they don't work out, I just bought another large cruiser they'd look nice in... that's what happens when you browse eBay after a couple of beers .

    What do you guys think of these motors for my Dauntless?

    I think they'd probably push your boat just fine, you may need to experiment with prop size and voltage. From my own experience I'd suggest making sure you think about how you are going to mount the motors, if the can diameters will fit in the hull and line up with the drivetrain, and whether or not there are couplers available in the right diameter to mate with the prop shafts. Keep us posted!
