Bait Delivery

Toesup Boat Werks (Special Boat Division) announcement.

Seeing as I'm both a modeller and a fishermen, all this talk recently of getting bait / free offerings to the fish got me thinking... and designing.
I generally fish weedy, difficult ponds for Carp (I'm ex Brit and weird ).. where a 'normal' boat would get its prop tangled in the weeds. BD1 should ride over the weeds and hopefully should only cause minimum disturbance to the water surface.

The BD1 (Bait Delivery 1) was born... and over the last week I have been putting it together from bits from my scrap box.

Now i need a name...

Love your design of the doors Toes, how do you keep it closed! And can I gather that's where the ESC resides? Boo
