                  Thank you all for your replies.
                  Enclosed you should find some pictures of my radio controled boat. It's a Riva Ariston from 1967. It took me approximatly 600 hours to build it.
                  Hope you will appreciate.

                    Absolutely Stunning. What a beautiful piece of work! How big is it?
                    I went to the Geneva boat show in 1980 and I saw several of these beautiful boats built in Italy. Here in the US they are mostly older vintage and used on the fresh water lakes.
                    Thank you for the pictures.

                      What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                      I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                      FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                      Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                      I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
