Roberta that is looking really great! Looks just like the real thing!
I used to have a radio control boat. It had some sort of sealing foam to keep water out of the hatch area. Water seems to get into r/c boats easily.

Thanks, Jim!! It's way easier to work on. Sanding and fairing is a lot easier, too.

Now that I think about it, it also had a clear plastic box with sealing tape for all of the radio stuff. The on/off switch was a push/pull switch mounted in the lid of the box. The boat was a tunnel cat hull with an 11cc outboard motor.

Coincidentally, I was just going to post something about a model I am going to be building of my boat.

:)

It will be posted shortly under my build thread.

Sounds great, Carl. It's a lot of fun recreating your dream boat in small scale. A lot easier, too.
