EarlyVosper M.T.B by Simplas by boaty Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Onetenor Fuji 15 was a good glow engine which I don't think it is manufactured any more. Aero version max B.H.P was just below .40 when tested. If it was in a model aircraft it would have been around .20 to .25 depending on prop size which was good then for a small capacity glowplug . Marine versions when on the water put out a little less and the water cooled jacket was never as efficient as the finned cylinder jacket of the aero version. My two Aerokits boats, the Sea Commander and the Crash Tender are powered by single Speed 600 motors running on either 8.4 or 9.6 volt Ni Mh batteries. Performance is equal to that of marine diesel power such as the 2.46 Ed Racer and D.C 2.46 Rapier, the latter I used to watch in the fast steering events in the early 1960s at Fleetwood and Coronation Park in Crosby just outside Liverpool. Taycol powered versions would be obviously slower due to the additional weight were far more reliable and you did not have to put up with injuries from excessive use of a starting cord with kids watching and "extracting the urine" shouting "why wont it go mister".

A return to the hobby! by boaty Admiral   Posted: 3 months ago
SLEC do have a good reputation and its great that the classic kits of old are back in production. The Sea Commander is one of my favourites as I restored one many years ago but foolishly sold it to fund my karting activities four years later. However in 2011 I found another one and restored that. This one I am keeping along with the 34 inch Crash Tender of 1962 vintage that I restored in 2014 being one that the former owner was about to place in a skip. I am interested in a Sea Rover as its a boat I never had. In the early 1960s when we lived in Liverpool, dad would take us up to Fleetwood to see the Aerokits display and watch the steering event on the big lake. Nostalgia aint what it used to be. Boaty😆

Bluebird K7 by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 years ago
Hi Wayne It's not that clubs have anything against fast models and IC, more that the local council and residents object to the noise and pollution. The result is sailing waters are lost for all and new waters are difficult to find. I am speaking from personal experience of just such a situation where a non club member raced an IC boat when the club were not present and the council withdrew permission following complaints from local residents. There are clubs where IC's are permitted and the off shore power boats use IC. I believe Fleetwood may allow ICs but I am not sure and apologise if this is not the case. Darren our club fast expert has achieved speeds nearing your 75mph using brushless/Lipo and self piercing props. He makes it across our lake in about 2 secs. I will mention you when I next see him and ask if he wants to contact you to discuss your project as he also designs his own boats. Keep us posted with your progress. Dave

Not sure, but I hope a long time with the amount of scraping by the diggers to clear all the mud and sunken boats.👍

PT 301 (Snuffy Smith) by Gabby Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 3 years ago
Lovely afternoon at Fleetwood with no other boats in sight. Went for a first sail with Deans HMS Cossack, but a little unstable , so let snuffy loose. She needs an engine change from a 650 and a new paint job. So maybe next year. 😎 😎 😎
