Action Electronics do a 900 size motor which top revs at 6500, so bucket loads of duration torque to turn a higher pitch prop. 1/4" drive and used on large boats.
Response by frankburgess on the 2nd Mar 2013
Thanks for the Ideas fellas,....as the motor was given free I will try It out with just brief runs and check the motor temperature.....I'll let you know the outcome
Response by frankburgess on the 8th Mar 2013
Well fellas, Sucess the boat performed pretty well, similar performance to the motor which burnt out, but without any drama. Checked the temperature of the motor occasionally, and It seemed warm but not excessive. The battery Is a 7amp lead acid (Motorbike type) and gave well over an hour running time.
Unusual feature of the boat, Is that being big (46") the wash Is considerable.

Thanks for your Ideas

Best Regards
frank

Sea Nymph - Posted: 5 years ago by jeremy
Not Strictly Aerokits!!! Bought this and a Sea Breeze at the Warwick Show. Sea Breeze Is In the cupboard for Xmas. Sea Nymph Is Ivory and Brunswick Green. It has a JP 400 motor with an Mtroniks 15 amp esc powered by a 7.2v nicad. Currently It has a 35mm S prop. Haven't had a chance to try It out on the water yet. Maybe this weekend. Its the first wooden boat I've ever built so am quite pleased with the outcome. Looking forward to the Sea Breeze as that's going to be my first brushless model.

Aerokits Fast Patrol Boat - Posted: 5 years ago by jelley_baby
HI Two Pictures Before and After, As Purchased on Ebay and Now ready to sail.
First sail 16-12-2012 Cwmbran. First fitted a too powerful Outrunner with a small rudder no good would not steer or go straight. so changed outrunner to a lower rated one about 1200 kVA and fitted a larger rudder (medium size as opposed to a small one). The result was very good and she ran all morning on a 2 x 4.8 Volt 3800 MAh Nimh In series 9.6V total, for about 2 hours.

Hi, I'm currently in the process of building my first model. It's one of my fathers that has been sat in the loft, kit form for 30 odd years. I have the decals to turn it into a fire boat but I'm struggling to find a suitable monitor to place on the coach house roof. Can you remember where yours came from?
Response by jelley_baby on the 5th Jan 2017
Hi, it's not a proper monitor on the cabin roof, but the spray nozzle from an air freshener the type that are battery powered and spray one burst every 15 minutes. I suppose that you could attach a small pipe to it and make it into a working monitor if you wanted too. Hope that this helps Graham.👍

can someone tell me what kind of engine would be best for this model boat ?

Response by Dave M on the 21st Oct 2012
Assuming Its about 36" long a nice speed 600 should give a good turn of speed. Prop about 35-45mm. You will need to have room for the batteries, probably NiMh's, plus the radio and ESC (25 amps?).
If you are Into brushless and LiPo's you will really motor, but there Is a cost to set this up Initially.
You will also need to carefully check the propshaft and bearing for wear - IC engines are not kind to the running gear.
Good luck with the restoration 😀
Response by davey on the 22nd Oct 2012
Hello, Thankyou for your helpful advice, I have now decided to put In an electric motor In the boat so hopefully It will be up and running by the end of next week.

What a little gem. Looks superb on the water. 😀 I hope you have Sweet Pea well mounted on the fore deck, but with Popeye as skipper what could go wrong 😉 No Spinach? Did you make the figures yourself?
You'll have to do Bluto next In a suitable mean looking vessel 😊
Really brightened my day In spite of the wet weather (again!)
Well done 😀
Response by Mallory on the 10th Jul 2012
HI Dave, the figures were purchased of eBay as a set. I have Bluto but as of yet have not decided what to do with him ❓
