48ft Golden Egg Harbor


R C scale model Golden Egg Harbor (0 min 28 sec)




This is a model of the brochure boat for Egg Harbor in 1972. I drew up plans from many photos and measurements of the full size boat in the marina. It has a redmax weed eater motor which I converted to water cooling (very hard to do because the spark plug is angled) and the output goes through a gearbox and on to two prop shafts(also homemade). The pilot station has a working compass (fabricated from a cut light bulb) The only items purchased were the props and the radio gear
