    This was my first build venturing into the RC Boat realm.
    Plans were downloaded from the KK EezeBilt website.

    Construction is of 1/8" Balsa throughout.

    To waterproof the hull, I sprayed it with automotive undercoating on the outside, then painted with a latex paint.

    The model seemed to be very lightweight, and with the flat bottom didn't draft very low in the water. I added about 1-1/2 to 2 lbs of plaster of paris to the main hold giving it added weight.

    I need to shoot a new video of it in the water.

    Thanks,

    Yes, I wish I had found this site sooner. I found the KKEezeBilt site back in 2012, and have gone back to it and the Marinecraft site many times. I enjoyed reading about his childhood adventures at the school pond.
