Thanks for replying RNinmunich. I know the
Difference between schottel and voith prop.
I pointed out in post i wanted to use
In your words "z drives" on my model iO am
attempting to build. I am new to this so give
me a chance to learn without some negative
remarks!!! OK. I will take your advice and
will leave hull alone. I could do with advice from
Members of installation of "z drives" in Bow of the hull. Thanks GREEN.

Hi, wasn't intended to be negative, just to clarify the situation, which you now have. Z-Drive are not my words, but those of Mr Becker who invented it and founded the company called Schottel. I simply found it most odd that you proposed attacking the keel itself.
