    Hi Cash, I remember this from the late 1950's early 1960's when it was featured in Model Maker magazine. I was in my early teens then, but it seemed like something from the future. I was still fiddling with cotton reels and rubber bands at the time !πŸ˜‰

    That’s a β€œblast from the past”.

    I had forgotten about the Taplin-Baker Hydrojet.

    Was it anything to do with the maker of the Taplin Twin two cylinder Diesel engine ?

    Hi yall. Did a little trading this week with a buddy of mine. Traded a boat and a kit, got money in the pocket and a box full of goodies….including an RKH Products Taplin-Baker Hydrojet. Did a little research, found a little info on the STOCK Hydrojet, but this thing is a unicorn. It’s NIB, has the gaskets and Taplins instruction sheet, but there’s additional paperwork that states it was modified by RKH products in Dallas, Texas, and goes into detail on the mods made. I’ve been in this part of Texas all my life save the 5 years I was at Ramstein. Never heard of RKH products. Can’t find ANYTHING on the net. Nada. Apparently the mods included a stronger 3/16 shaft, a different impeller, and an oiling tube for the internal bushing. Now, it would be fun to set this up in a boat with a brushless outrunner on say, 4-6 lipo cells and just go to town, but there’s cheaper and readily available alternatives for that. I don’t really collect much anymore, so I’m probably going to put this up for sale, but being it’s modified I don’t know where to start. I don’t want to give it away, but I don’t want ask too much, and in the off chance I keep it, I would really like to know some history of this thing. If anybody has any info I’ll be truly grateful, and like my Pa used to say, β€œI’ll dance at your wedding”
