I will check the strut location and see if I can get a better fit. turn fin I got the Idea of where and how big, It does show that on the plans I think. This is a big boat, the cg is going to be a challenge because of the nose on this thing. Fun,Fun. Thanks for the picture Jim.

Well I moved the motor back as suggested and the line on hull show's the CG. The angle on the motor is the best that can be, and it puts the prop shaft around 1-3/4" below the trans which looks about right, I wont know untill she's in the water.

I think that looks like an excellent CG line and a good spot for the motor. Nice looking decking as well.

What are you going to do for the cockpit? I know Mitch Dillard has vac-u-formed plastic cowlings for 1/10th scale, and may have something for 1/8th as well.

1 3/4 sounds deep his deep are your sponsors? Also I think you would be much better off with the batteries up in the nose

Is it better to have the boat a little nose heavy, or tail. I dont want that bounce that I see in many of these boats.
Should the prop-shaft be the same depth as the sponsons. I have alway's kept my batteries close to the center of the boat, and added weight where I needed it.
But thats just me.

I got the couling or hatch back what ever you want to call it. It's from the RC Boat Company,very nice product kinda price'y though. Now the problem, how to make it part of a hatch that I can remove and be water tight. I ordered some of those spring screws as was suggested here. They were to big and I'll have to come up with something else.

you don't want it either nose or tail heavy actually. That tail configuration is for the 68 -69 Bardahl

Since I'm building the same frame kit, thought I would add my 2c. Your CG should be right at or just behind the sponson heels. Shovelnoses like light back ends. My set up is a Scorpion 4035-800 on 8s. I have given myself ample room to adjust the batteries fore and aft to help balance. I have, as of late, been mounting my cowls with a pin, or tongue on one end and neo magnets of the other. So far, I haven't lost a cowl running.
MIke at ML Boatworks has done a great job of re-tuning these frames to run with today's available power systems. Looking forward to seeing how your build performs with that powerplant.
