Default New (RC) lifeboat ready for action

I wanted to build a boat capable of rough waters, well this is the result: a lifeboat, water tight hull and self righting capability.

Here's the building process, the site is in Spanish, but the photos (please click on them) speak by themselves. If you have any question please don't hesitate to ask me:

Beautiful work, I want to build one of the new Tamar Class to
the same rigorous standards you set. Water tight, self righting...
Again, for rough water..

Here is my practice to be confident in launching.

I have to save up for the Tamar kit, but you see the goal.



Hope we can see your life boat in some rough seas soon. [8D]
