Mantua mississippI steam boat - Posted: 3 years ago by topperles
Bought this part built with prop propulsion . but Im converting It to paddle power.
im using a 600 motor with a 50/1 gearbox to power It , but I think I will have to change the setup as the noise Is too loud ,even though It will
Eventually It will have a 'Dixi' sound system Installed .

Looks very nice, I'm just about to start building mine, what battery and voltage did you use? Did you bother with a bow thruster. How was It to build
Response by topperles on the 1st Mar 2015
HI , sorry for the late reply , life keeps getting In the way ...lol. She has 12v system Installed (she needs a lot of ballast so a 12v battery helps). she Is running on 2x MFA motors at 6:1 ratio and 2 x viper marine 20's each running separately.I haven't got round to fitting a bow thruster, A nice boat to build and you can do a little or alot to her , I have seen some with operating cargo doors and cranes,(a bit to Involved for me )
She does weigh alot when finished, I purchased a sack cart and manufactured a cradle to transport her.
It would be nice If you open a blog so we can see the build ........Take care..............................................Les
