Progress on Jet Sprint hull - Posted: 15th Apr 2017
Completed all the clay work. Now set in
casting plaster and waiting to see how it turns out in a few days time
Have used 50 kgs of clay and 50 kgs of casting plaster so far.
Next target is designing the top of the boat and back to clay and plaster again whilst the hull is being gell coated and fibreglassed
Will report on the casting result shortly

Hi Rod,
I'd love to build a 1/4 scale Jetstar that was used as a tender for Bluebird K7.
The original Jetstar is on display at the Ruskin museum at Coniston

Jet Sprint Boat - Posted: 8th Apr 2017
Have been trying to source a 1/4 scale hull for a jet sprint boat but not successful so decided to make my own
Borrowed a small model identical to the one I wanted and set to scaling it up by 2.5 times
I have shown the start of the journey and will continue to post development until it is in action
Have sourced 1/4 scale driver and navigator together with jet unit and electric water cooled motor which will need to produce 3 to 4 hp to drive the jet unit shaft
Hope you all like it because it's been really interesting so far
I should be in a position to pour the mould shortly and then have a fibreglass hull taken off😆
