    Here on Long Island, New York the use of petrol powered anything RC is prohibited almost everywhere. There is one exception that I know of which is a organization of RC petrol racing boats. It is a limited group and you must pay an annual fee of $100 to cover the cost of insurance that is a requirement by the town to allow the water to be used for this purpose. The lake is in a very secluded part of a public park with limited access and is patrolled by a park ranger. Len

    Our lake is a โ€œfishermanโ€™s lake.โ€ As a result radio controlled boating is frowned upon, anything gas powered is prohibited because of the noise. It took a while to get the board to ease up on my electric boats that Iโ€™ve shared here. It doesnโ€™t hurt that my wife is on the board! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
    So as long as theyโ€™re not in the water while my neighborโ€™s kids are swimming all is ok. Although itโ€™s kind of funny as the neighborโ€™s kids are fascinated with them and beg me to bring them out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Boatshed a good morning
    As already mentionned in previous conversations we have a pond especially built for us complete in concrete 1,30 m deep and 2 levels below groundlevel ( to avoid the wind when we are sailing. We are based next to the yachting harbour and the river Schelde . The first row of houses is a couple of 100 meters away. Wa are not allowed to run these sort of boats.
    It's primarely the green party!!! Nothing is allowed any more these days. Even model airplanes or helis must have electric motors while their airfield is miles away from houses.
    I had 2 boats that run on petrol one was a chris craft, it was a joy, a pleasure to run them. But unfortunately those times are gone

    Another old restoration that I am still sorting...Kyosho Wavemaster with another set of colors from my endless decal stash. Always thought these tunnel hulls were sharp as hell! Hope to get some speed runs in soon. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hermank, We are very restricted on where we can run these engines over here now. There are many places that are banning them. I have sold off all of mine. I had 6 that had never been run, a Zenoah that I had blinged it all up fitted a clutch and an electric start and run it in ready to install in a boat. (Here is a picture of my Zenoah I had Cost me over ยฃ500 an I only got ยฃ275 on Ebay for it) Also removed 4 engines out of boats that hadn't had more that a couple of hours running and sold them all off on Ebay. I live in an area where I have nowhere where I can use an IC/ petrol engine.
