SkDaddle 40


Well, 6 years after a friend sent me a surprise package with a vintage SkDaddle 40 kit in it, it's ready to float test!

I went electric with it, 2000kV 6-pole motor. I'll start on 3S dual 2200 mah 11.1V batteries (because I have them). . The drive system is a surface drive system from Offshore Electrics. I am very impressed with OSE, they made it easy for me to figure out what I needed.

It is painted with SIG Dope (again...because I had it!), with an acrylic clear coat to finish it off.

This is my first boat kit build...and now I'm hooked!
