    Thanks Rod!
    No worries. I took your advice and picked up a 80T 540 for the Lumba-Lumba. I am positive itโ€™ll be perfect for light cruising.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Jumpugly, in case he doesn't reply promptly: it appears to be one of these. I purchased two off AMAZON recently. They come in a variety of turns, I bought 80T version, for the high torque at low RPM for my Springer tugs under construction. Includes blue/yellow leads with bullet connectors, not attached to the motor. It's a rock crawler brushed motor.
    Regards, RodC

    Thanks for the comments.it has been a bit of a head scratcher but safe to say watertight. Superstructure all new so once finished should last a good few years
    Regards Terry..

    Terry that's a stunning transformation, my main hobby is the saving and restoration of model boats and its not as easy as building new, and you've got the skill in spades.
    Well done shipmate, cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Nice job Terry.
    I enjoy seeing the old ones brought back to life.
    It can certainly be challenging always running into something unexpected and figuring
    out how to correctly repair it. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Doug, I totally agree with you.

    Anyone who knows how to restore is truly talented and is a model maker who is not easily discouraged.
    I have never restored it. I imagined if the major trunk of a mainmast broke, for example.
    What a pain if you can't repair it, a really complicated job with all the shrouds and ratlines to be redone.
    Maybe one day, I will restore my father's beautiful motorboat.
