Hi Who makes this boat and what is it made out of. I have a boat it was made by Model flight Accessories in Deal Kent England. The hull look the same but the deck is different. Mine is made from ABS Plastic. The size of it is 570mm long, with a 230mm beam.

Hello Boatshed

This model was from a kit manufactured by DPI Leisure Industries in the USA, almost the same construction,
and as far as I know, not in business any more with the modelling side of things.
That Piranha is a superb model and even better when coupled with an otznot brushless and 4s I know I have one here

wardrobe - Posted: 10 months ago by philpjuk
Recreation of a boat built when I was 14/15 55 years ago,used a clockwork gramophone motor with the rudder couples to an eccentric on the spring box to make it sail in a lazy "S".the original lifted in the water but did not plane properly so seeing if 55 years later I have learned anything!.

Fascinating. Clockwork rules. I am truly surprised the motors are still working after so many years. I too hope we see a video

Response by BOATSHED on the 20th Nov 2017
That's different, are you going to still use the clockwork motor. How does the rudder work. I see it has a wire from it to inside the boat. Also what is the nipple on the side sponson for?
Response by philpjuk on the 20th Nov 2017
yes still clockwork,The best improvements have been made by lightening the motor, drilling holes in everything and replacing a side plate with one made of alloy.It is just a nut on the sponson, they are adjustable for incidence.It will now plane on the sponsons "unsticking" the hull.The original was built when I was 13/14,the motor came from the family gramophone when my dad converted it to autochanger/amplifier,the wood came from the woodshed but I was short of plywood and realised the back of my wardrobe was plywood and was hidden behind clothes so when my parents were out I cut the bits I needed from it!,my mates christened it "the wardrobe".Performance is down to propeller choice and is a compromise between speed and runtime.I took it to a boating pond in a nearby town when my wife needed to visit it and a council "jobsworth" told me I was not allowed to sail it,"only yachts and electric boats on here sir"no amount of reasoning would make him change his mind and he escorted me out of the park!.

Looks like a nice mod on her. I have one but wasn't happy with it as it didn't have a very good radio range. But did go quite well in the radio range she had. That should be a lot better now you have done this to her. I gave my brother one that I got from a boot fair that cost me a £5er. He ripped out the insides and has fitted it with a small brushless motor and 2.4gh radio and it is not so much a hooligan but more of a total maniac. But good fun.

Remora MM812 - Posted: 3 years ago by JediErn
Designed by Vic Smeed In 1964 for the Magazine, Model Maker. Plan No. MM812. Found plans for free on Internet and decided to build It as I did not have a vintage motor boat In my collection. Did not like the cabin so redesigned It. Powered by a Johnson 600 motor,2 * 7.2v 3300 mAh battery, 20 amp Mtroniks Viper Marine Controller and a 45mm dia course 2 bladed propeller. Goes really well.
Fitted trim tabs which finished the boats performance. Tested In rough weather and got 20 mins running on a fully charged battery.
