Regarding New Brighton and Hoylake , both lakes are no go for I.C. There is a very large lake in Gautby Road , Birkenhead, 😀 where I.C boats can sail.
Before using Gautby Road, check it out with the Birkenhead Club as they also have a yachting section which also uses the lake.
Guess I have to scrap the I/C idea and go electric. It's not just a long way to Tipperary but Birkenhead a fair hop too.
Just how many amps I need remains to be seen BUT the bonus is..... 3 motors as per the original :-)
I too still have the remains of the 36", the first one built as a kid got scrapped... so I built another for my kid and it's just about alive. This "big un" is mine now I have re-discovered my youth.
Move over ducks 😡
