Hi
I have a Calypso that I got off one of our members, and it has two 545 motors so far I have not taken her out onto the water.
Hope that this is of some help.

did some repair work on the real Calypso in the early seventies ,even met the great man Jacques Cousteau who gave us a tour of the ship even went down into the bow viewing pod ,the last I read was that she's being restored in Turkey.

Yes that’s true however they recently had a small fire which has set them back a bit.😢

A great boat to model, I remember it's regular appearance on the tv and the great mans commentary on it. "I and my son phillipe are diving to a reef........" A great memory of the possibility of adventure.
