The following was received from a gentleman in Hill Head

I have decided to ‘sell up’ my model boats as I am becoming too old to get them into the water. I have the following for sale:-

Tug ‘Boy David’: This is a Caldercraft single screw ‘Imara’. It is now electrically driven by a rare earth motor. It comes with receiver, All servos and electronic 30Amp speed controller. It also carries a sound unit to make the vessel sound like a diesel. Everything is In full working order but it comes less its 12v battery. I have planked the deck in teak and she even has cutlery and crockery on the Mess deck table!! I used a Yuasa 9.5Ah battery unit. This model is for sale at 700.00

Sydney Harbour Scow: This is an unfinished project. The hull was originally built by a boatbuilder (673/4” in length) from Moodys yard in the fifties as I was told, by the chap whose garage it was in. It was built by his father but apart from being told that I have no other evidence to that effect.  There was no deck on it and the first thing I did was to deck the boat in teak planks. These are all fitted with wooden dowel as opposed to nails or screws. There is a brass tube for the rudder post,  further tubes for the long keel plus a further brass tube for the mast step and it has a single piece transom stern.  More photos are available for interested parties.

As the hull remains an unfinished project I have it up for sale at 400.00 as it is a true masterpiece of the boat builders art.   

I live in Hill Head and am able to show the boats as and when any of your Club Members want to see either of them. Please email me

In the first instance and if you have any enquiries we can arrange a date/time to view the models.

I also have a large full scale sailing yacht about 5ft. in length with aluminium mast,  sails etc  which requires some work to bring back to full working

order. All sail winches & servos etc are in situ. I would let this model & stand go for about 250.00

A number of boats and kits originally built by Dave Binstead's late Father,
some remain unfinished.
The first one is a 50" model the hull appears in good condition but the deck and cabin will need some work, it has 3 propshafts.

The second one is a 50" model and the hull on this one appears to be in good condition too, but the deck and cabin need some work, this one appears to be a steam model as it has a funnel and it has what looks like a small boiler.

The next one is a model of the smit Rotterdam tug boat, it has been started but it looks like all the parts are there to finish, it has two hulls one the original  one from the kit and one which my father appears to have made from scratch.

The last one is a 1:98 scale model of the HMS Victory, this kit appears to be all there and not started.
