Bought this 27" boat off ebay for £11, it had more warps than star trek but came in a cracking purpose made box so... not too bad.
Anywho, stripped it and put this ridiculously huge clockwork motor I built last year in it. Ive tested the twin prop output in Irish stout beer for added viscosity, got to be some kind of Guinness world record.

A change of materials or will you use the cans from your test tank liquid for the next project, Your record is lager than life took a stout heart and its just as well the hull wasn't a wee heavy ,you will probably get lots of alcohol related replies or with any luck sponsorship by a famous Irish brewery
