Having a go at restoring my late farther's paddle boat, i remember we never managed to sort out the drive so it got left on the shelf gathering dust. Now some 8 yrs later going to have another go, hopeing to gleen some info from the boat forums. This myself and my mother would love to see on the water chugging away. My hobby is r/c aircraft so this is going to be very different and difficult to do.
