coastguard - Posted: 16th Nov 2018
I bought the hull from a member on here stripped the insides and redone it to take the rudder servo i made the motor mounts from ply & used epoxy to set them in it runs nicely on the two 45mm brass props the superstructure will be made from lite ply

So far so good Northumbrian,👍
although I might have placed the batteries lower in the hull to lower the CoG and thus improve stability (roll-rate reduction) 😉
Look forward to the superstructure updates, looking for some tips for my fish cutter superstructure rebuild 😁😉
Cheers, Doug

Good morning Doug
the ballast if needed will be added when the superstructure is completed the batteries are in the best place possible any lower and they would have been obstructing the propshafts
have a nice day

Fair enough Bob, sounds like a plan 👍
