Sport Fish 1:12


my start. It should a 48" sport fish.
This is the plug for the mold. It started out as a 44" on paper.By the time it lofted out it grew. I may put prop pockets in after I get a handle on the running gear. The plan is to finish the hull and mechanical this winter\spring.

Nick you are wright.
The many of the new engine and steering controls are plug and play. ( VOLVO IPS )example.
The electronics interface with ethernet . What do they do with the extra room: 2 VHF ant. radar, 2 GPS, satellite weather, satellite phone, 2 satellite TV dones,Single sideband,EPIPB, lift raft, cell phone booster, remote spotlight, and enough 110 volt lites to be seen by a 747 at 30,000 ft.

I used to Rig the offshore battle wagons ( Hatteras, Bertram, Egg Harbor , Buddy Davis.)
By the way not too Old Buddy Davis just pasted away. 1\16\11 he was 62yrs old
