Being new to ships and boats..... I will have to admit to all that I did the "unforgivable" ....... I bought a RTF Atlantic from Aquacraft. I am hopes you WILL forgive me and answer my question wink.gif smile.gif I want to keep up with maintanence and I know NOTHING about "how to" .... or "how often" do I have to repack the driveshaft tube. Any detailed text or photos will help me keep from having a leak in this area.
As an added thought..... aside from the satisfaction of building from a kit........this is quite a good deal for the begginer. Attached are some photos. The boat is on my airplane, (now boat too), workbench!! biggrin.gif

PS. I am an avid builder of RC Aircraft and have many kits under my belt. I was just anxious for a boat, and am limited on "playtime" since I went back to work at 65.

Thanks, Indy Bob (sloboat)

Hats off to the administrators for doing their best to stop these spammers that infiltrated the site. The spammers are a big headache for just about everyone. ..... sloboat

Sorry, but I am a newbie to Blog posting. I read your blog and saw the photos but I am stumped as to how I type in and get started. It is probably right in front of me and I am missing it unsure.gif I did start a gallery, (I think), but not sure. Anyway..... are there any general instructions I could get from someone?
Thanks, New Member, Sloboat.

Hello all,
RC boats are new to me. I have been in RC airplanes for about 7 years but since moving to our new home, an interest in RC Boats has popped up! smile.gif You see, our subdivision has 4 lakes in it and one is about 200 feet from my house. I have been reading and viewing all kinds of boating sites, gleening info for a project. I don't think I would have a problem building the boat of choice, but I want to make sure of the drive line and motor choice. (I have built about 5 airplane kits and enjoy the building process). My problem is time. At 65+, I have had to go back to work full time after being retired for 5 years. sad.gif (Medical costs, etc) The other is my lack of knowledge in boating. I guess what I am trying to say is...... please forgive me........ My first boat may be a RTF to by-pass the two reasons above. Now that I have that off my chest I will hope to re-gain some respect!! rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif
Attached is my last airplane kit build.... I hope to have a boat kit soon and hope it turns out as nice as this sailplane........ later, sloboat
