Scale Boating

                                                               NEXT  SCALE EVENT APRIL 12, 2014

Scale boats and ships are generally motorized (electric) and are usually built to a set of plans that attempt to accurately model a vessel from another period or a vessel currently in service somewhere around the world. Ships of any scale are welcome but the most common seem to be ¼” to the foot and 1/8” to the foot. We have several scale meets each boating season and set up a navigation course so that skippers can test their skills at docking, navigating channels, maneuvering in tight quarters and other boating 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 !     5 ½ FEET!

  We are looking for a few volunteers to help set up the course on Friday 11/8 starting at 8:30 for an hour or so.

Starting at 10 am on the 9th we will have a full maneuvering course as well as “BEST OF REGATTA” in which you are invited to add your vote.  You will be amazed at the detail that scale skippers put into their models, of museum quality!  See you at the pond. We are looking for a few volunteers to help set up the course on Friday 11/8 starting at 8:30 for an hour or so.
