    Veron Marlin Cruiser Rebuild

    Picked up a vintage Veron Marlin Cruiser that was in bad shape many years ago when I was young, working and had little time to do anything with it.

    During the covid "work at home years" years I got off my butt, covered the front deck opening, planked the deck and rebuilt the cabin to give the front window more slope.

    Can't wait to get a big motor for this sucker and finish it off this summer!

    During the rebuild I ripped out the original stuffing box and altered the slope that the original owner had so that it is shallow and will handle a big 800 series high performance brushed motor I have that fits nice and low in the hull.

    I bought the motor(s) about 15 years ago for my Perkasa but found they were too heavy for the 1/32 Precedent model and used a pair of Graupner Speed 600's instead. I don't consider weight a major issue with the Marlin Cruiser.

    Built a removeable motor cover to aid in cooling, since I will have to add a water cooling port at some time if I can get an 800 size water jacket. The entire inside floor of the hull is removable in sections (bit of an ordeal to make work) and will conceal 4 C-size battery packs.

    I like the modifications you've made to it.
    I've always felt the Marlin is a little different looking, odd maybe, from some angles.

    Looking forward to hearing what running gear you decide upon and how well it performs.

    Will
