Bruce's love is the construction of model boats. Many of his creations have been built from the original design drawings, and although they are scale models, they are built using the same planking method.

As part of this love, Bruce has taken on the construction, under Licence, of the ELECTRON radio controlled yacht, designed and built by Des Townson up until his death in October 2008. See separate articles.

Bruce Tantrum is a superb model boat builder.

You can Commission Bruce to build a model of your boat, using the original drawiings and construction method.
