R/C Zodiac Inflatable with motor options


As a continuation of my new member intro here are some specs for my design....

Length. 32"
Beam. 10"

Construction. Basic keel and bulkhead 1/8" thick ply. 1/16" ply hull covering. There will be a cabin center console detail so use your imagination for final details. Either standing center console or enclosed cabin.

Sponson will be 2 5/8" diameter swim noodle

I'm detailing mine similar to U.S. Coast Guard since was active duty USCG and currently with USCG Auxiliary for 20 years. My flotilla currently has a 30' Zodiac RHI with twin engines.

Looking good. The Jet drive and hull are from KMB in Germany. They do really nice work for us scale guys and the drives have been 100% reliable over the last 6 years.
