And if it's a small yacht say twenty inches, would it run (with the winch operating frequently) say an hour in total. Perhaps even a tad longer.

Nev, be careful sitting the hull lower in the water, she does not have a massive freeboard, with the bigger/heavier battery she will sit slightly lower.

Pretty small rescue launch! 😲 Then again; wadda I know? Taking 68feet as an average of the various HSL versions (excluding the Fairmile) 68x12=816, 816/20=40.8 scale. Therefore at 30" the scale would be ~27:1.

Without knowing that we don't know what the original scale is before enlargement. Basically: if you enlarge the model by 50% (i.e x 3/2) the final scale will be 2/3 of the original scale. E.g. if the original scale is 1:30 expanding by 50% would give a scale of 1:20. Happy enlarging Mon, 25 Sep 2017 04:52:53 GMT https://model-boats.com/forum/building-related/33577/?goto=33593
