can you land on that ?
My but that is a bonny wee thing. Cyder would be the cargo from the apple orchards of the Clyde Valley? The drink trade that the puffers were normally engaged in was whisky from the Western Isles of Scotland but if it was a paying load they would carry it, coal, cattle , flittings, tractors, anything ! Hope the man from Maine spots this !

Damn that is small!! My 1/72 USS Long Beach is nearly that wide in the beam !!(31.9cm)
What ESC and motor setup do you run ? I'm still searching for a small ESC for my Lindberg patrol boat.

Cheers Bruce

the boat uses a 380 low revolution motor with a cheap Chinese ESC... driving a 25mm low pitch prop... power is ok and very low current consumption...

Desprite its small size and low speed... the wave it formed in the water is amazing... thanks to the deep hull....
