Outstanding


Simply outstanding Tom. What an amazing build and boat! The parts all look stunning and married together beautifully after all of your "messaging!" Exceptional work to say the least. I can't wait to see her run! It's going to be a site to be seen on and off the water! Once again...well done my friend!!!!

Hi Tom,

Those motors are going to be so 'not impressed' by just 4S...

But she'll run fine at cruising speed.

If you tend to get bored, connect the lipo's in series for some speed runs.
Keep the speedruns short, keep the tin-shedding in mind...

Regards, Jan.

Hatch Cover


I just finished making the tongue for the hatch cover. This will keep the front of it secured, and the two bolts at the rear complete the attaching method.

Hi Tom,
Great subject matter, fantastic build, super workmanship, beautiful boat. I'm out of superlatives. Very impressive. I love deep-vee cigarettes.
Really great job Tom.

All ya'll are too kind!

Grav, don't expect this one to 'fly'. It will be a cruiser. Just sort of putt around the pond.

I am planning on the maiden voyage this coming Saturday.

I just weighed her. 14 pounds 2 ounces all up with batteries. Still have to add the pool noodles for flotation but that is just air, lol.

Thanks Phil!

I am going to put her in the domestic test tank later this afternoon, to see how she sits in the water.
