Just a quick update to post these pictures of our first three boats which have received their first coat of paint, the other two are going to be painted this week. Now we can really see their characters! Jake's green machine, Sam's rather up market looking pirate boat with it's gloss black hull and stained wood deck not to mention my co leader's Avril's red racer!
By the way if you have been directed here from the footy rc sailing web site photo gallery those transparent plastic sails on my boat were totally useless and have been quickly replaced by a white nylon set I made from a discarded blown inside out red and white golf umbrella I found in the the bin at the local playing fields! three more sets can be got out of it!
