Re: Welcome to ModelFleet, Ron!
Thanks for the welcome Matty. I did find you guys through the SMML, and have been trying to go through some of the old posts. To all out there, my name is Ron Wilkinson and I live out here in Draper, Utah. I recently got back into plastic models and currently working /modifying Revell's Hawaiian Pilot. I also do scratch built wood vessels and maritme research.
On those flat bottom boats, that is what I had heard, and the person seemed pretty sure of himself. Made sense to me.
