Welcome to the Scale boating page of the WVRCM website! What is a scale boat? Simply put, the WVRCM scale fleet consists of any vessel which is not a pure racing boat. The vessel may be motorized (electric or steam only) or sail and generally represent a full size vessel from another period or a vessel currently in service somewhere around the world. Ships of any scale are welcome. We have several scale events each boating season featuring our popular Parade of Boats and a navigation course so that skippers can test their helmsmanship and navigation skills. Bring your models to the pond, finished or not. We like to compare notes and there’s usually a lot of Q & A time to share ideas and ‘how to’s’. There are a number of websites and scale suppliers to help with everything from complete kits to the smallest parts for all scales. The Useful Links page lists a number of these sites.
WEST VALLEY R/C MARINERS’ SCALE BOATS COME IN ALL SIZES…..2 FEET to over 8 FEET long!
