The bottom and chine line look good. At this point I would say your OK!. When running the model the hull is out of the water from the stem post to half way back at even half throttle. The planning surface is the last third of the hull or less the more throttle you give her.

Frankg First off I hope all is well and the recovery is going well. I received the new F5 and was able to get it in position by cutting off the foot. After regluing the battens and chine all looks good. The lines are as they should be and the flow very nicely. Again, I hope all is well and you are back in business better than ever. Hope you're health is on the mend as well. Thanks again for your outstanding service.

Regards Paul

Hi all...2 questions on this build:
I'm guessing that the balsa blocks we glue onto the rearward frames face toward the stern?
As you can see in the pic, the bottoms of the front frames don't protrude over the keel, but the rearmost do when they're all the way seated on the keel, should they be pushed down to meet the building board? Can Rich or anyone else advise me here?

PS. Rich thanks for the super quick delivery of this kit! Excellent service as usual.

ROB- all the frames feet are glued down to the building board. The keel will be trued with the frames later in the build. SEE POST #22 of the build of MISS SEVERN here in the build post.

ROB- All the balsa blocking for gluing the side panels in will be facing aft on the frames.

Miss Severn Motor Mount

Hi Rich,

Two questions; I'm ready to glue the motor mount in place and noticed two things :

1. The motor mount provided does not lay flat on the angle keel and there is no notch in the rear side of the block as pictured in the instructions. Should there be a notch cut in the rear of the mount?

2. Also the motor mount does not sit flat on the angled keel as the rear corners interfere with the hull. Would the corners be cut off the allow it to sit against the keel for the proper motor angle thru to the shaft?

Pictures attached. Thanks for the guidance.

PAUL- Yes we cut the motor mount board out to get it a little farther back for the base of the motor mount. Also we sanded the back corners of the motor mount board so that the board sat down on the angled keel notch. The idea was to line up the motor and universal as straight as possible to the prop shaft and stuffing box.

Mounting the Motor help (This is how I did it)

Hope this may help in the motor mounting.
Here are some pictures of the motor mount that I reworked to fit my build using the brushless motor. I used T nuts to hold the motor bracket in place, of the wood screws so I can easily take out the motor assembly for rework if needed. But the front 2 screws of the motor are hard to get out after installing the motor. I used a long screw driver to reach the front screws to start them, then a angled screw driver to torque them down.

I know itís been a really a hard time for you, your family and the factory these past few weeks. I have been following on the RCGroups every day.

I have been working on the Miss Seven build since I have gone past being able to replace the new F5 frame. I have reworked the sides to take out the hour-glass shape but it does not have the same lines as the boat in the pictures of the build (referring to step # 62 picture) see my attached pictures of my rework
I hope this will all work out.
Nice lines, great job

Frankg, wshores

Thanks guys, I figured there was a bit of rework required. Sounds like I need to wait Until I get the power package and then align the shaft, strut, motor and mount simultaneously to get it all aligned properly.

Wow, that looks fantastic, Tito!

Now I feel bad for not buying one! (I thought I heard somewhere that the first run of these is sold out -- Just a rumor though -- Check with frankg, of course)
