Not yet. Suggestions appreciated. Harbor Models probably a good bet as I understand they purchased the Wet Goose line. I should probably get started before their inventory id depleted. Thanks for mentioning.

Some early progress. Posterboard trial of deck fit and function. I'm planning on using 1/32 aircraft ply for deck but have concerns about it oil-canning between deck beams. Based on this trial I think it will be okay.

I'm working strictly from on-line photos, trying to estimate proportions of components. If anyone has general arrangement views or even a sales brochure I would greatly appreciate your sharing same.

deck


Looking good! Thats a big boat, I wouldn't be afraid to use 1/16" plywood for that deck.

Chum444- if you are concerned about the oil canning I would run a bunch of battens between the frames for better gluing as well as strength and support for the decking.

Thanks fg. Was planning to use some battens to add strength to the deck beams. Will expand the number of them if oil canning is a problem. Goal is to keep weight down although I may need a lot of ballast at the end of the day. If that's the case it too will be removable .

Looking on opinions for power. I have two Johnson HC 970 motors. Specs on RPM are all over the place but running 7.2V batteries, I doubt if they would generate much above trolling speed. As Browndog reminded me (he also runs 1:1 SF's) these hulls dig a hole and then lift their bow and run at cruising speeds. I doubt the benefit/weight ratio makes the Johnson's practical unless run at 12V & even then scale speed (18-22KTS) would be out of reach. So think a brushless outrunner ( I have specs in mind) is in order. So, first question is:
Forget the Johnsons?

Second question revolves around an Action V-tail mixer. Plan to us it to slow inboard prop in the turn. Data sheet indicates the P40E mixer doesn't play nice with an ESC with a BEC because of potential ground loop interference. Anyone have experience with this mixer and does a BEC cause significant problems?
