    This is "Salty Dog". Inspired by an 1970s - early 1980s small sport fisherman boat model of the same name from defunct boat Uniflite, this boat 1/16 scale was build using a fiberglass hull purchased in the internet a US firm. The hull is based upon a 23-footer Uniflite from an American hull supplier on Ebay. The deck, cabin and flybridge were build from 2mm ABS plastic sheets. It is powered by a single 540 brushed motor and one A123 (AKA LifePo) 9.9v battery 2500 mAh battery.

    Nice boat! Very close to the real one. Terrific job. In my case, inspiration came from the boat in the attached pic.

    Nice looking model. The paint scheme and geometry resembles a scratch built model I started back in the 80's and only recently started to finish based on a 1986 Bayliner 3250 cabin cruiser. Covid has resurrected all those builds that were started and never finished.

    Mine is not a true scale model, but it is about 20" long from the bow sprite to the swim platform, balsa construction and was designed from the cover photo and an article in a July 1986 issue of Power Boating Ontario.

    After doing a "dryfit on parts", Christmas looks like a good time to finish this one off and maybe do build journals on the many models I have in my drydock (been a recruit for to long). Like yours it is powered with a 540 motor and uses a 32mm prop.
