    Hi Colin H

    The photo's of the gearbox and motor, as for the prop from the mid of the boss to the tip of the blade was 18 so if I have got this right that would make it 36.

    I all ways take the size of the motor then get a prop just smaller in size.

    If you need any more then please ask.

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    Thanks Fred, a picture of the motor gearbox would help. Mine originally had a monoperm with attached gearbox but it was rusted solid and so was the propshaft and rudder shaft.
    I have replaced the rudder shaft and propshaft so far.
    Will try to post pictures this weekend.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Colin H

    I will have a look and come back to you ASAP,

    I am running her on 6 volt SLA battery, and the motor is connected to a gearbox, I have no idea what the ratio is but will try and count the teeth.

    Hi Fred,
    She looks good on the water.
    It is great to see things slowly getting back to normal and that you enjoyed your little trip out to club waters.

    Hi One and All

    Some time back I posted that I had purchased a Joffre Tug.

    All the I did to her to make her ready for sailing, was remake the mast and sort out the electrics, and yesterday (27/05/2021) I took her to my club waters (Swiss Cottage MBC) for her first sail,
