    BIG changers were made to this boat since I lasted posted pictures of it.

    Previously the motor was direct drive and mounted forward below the windshield. The CG was to far forward and weight of the model never allowed to boat to plane. That weight caused the motor to over heat even after adding a water jacket.

    I stripped out the shaft, removed the motor, RC gear, also removed the keel and other materials to bring the weight down.

    The shaft assembly was shortened, repositioned and epoxied in place. Using a sewing machine bobbin, a pulley was created allowing the motor to be mounted parallel to the shaft.

    The rudder servo assembly will be placed next and further CG testing in the tub. Too bad our pond is frozen over here in Ontario.
