One of the Thunder Tiger Ready to Run fishing boats. I’ve added details such as ropes and lobster pots. Some of the photos were taken on the River Itchen which runs behind my house. Compared to Setley pond you get real “Ocean Swells” (actually the wakes from passing boats). The main problem is the risk of floating seaweed fouling the propeller. Therefore, I only use the boats on the river if (1) the wind is blowing towards me, and (2) it’s warm enough to swim out and get the boat back!
The boat is presently having a major make-over to change it from an RTR appearance to a “proper” model look (including swapping the original, perfectly acceptable, 27MHz RC gear for 2.4GHz). One day I might get it finished!
