Motor mounting by Grandpa Commander   Posted: 2 months ago
Well there I was with the Kingfisher motoring along on the pond when it suddenly lost power, nothing??? No forward no reverse. I could give the motor forward and reverse but no reaction. Fortunately the breeze blew the boat into shore along with me using the rudder control. Upon landing and a cursory inspection I saw that the universal nylon had broken off at the metal connection. But, upon the workbench it was discovered the motor mount had come off the hull structure. It was just totally free, it lifted right out of the hull after removing the speed control connectors. Maybe, it is time to replace the geared motor to a direct drive. Any suggestions? I use brushed motors.

Hi Gerry, I'm afraid Martin left our Forum some weeks ago. 🤔 Regards Doug 😎

Martin, Did you ever make any progress with your search? I have just moved into the Wisbech area and am also looking for somewhere to sail. I have looked at Nar Valley MBC and at the moment they seem to be the only option, but would really like something more local. Gerry

Speed controls by Grandpa Commander   Posted: 5 months ago
I will be interested in the results of your testing. For now, I will continue doing testing for weight balance on the Kingfisher under power at the pond. Some of you will know that the motor was installed 2.5" (6.5cm) forward from where the plans showed. (Do not ask why?)

Thanks, Dave. I see their website is now up for grabs in that "domain for sale" way. But I'll try those numbers and see what happens. Cheers, Martin

Hi Martin Kingfishers MBC are not listed in our club sites so it's possible we have no members from this club. However they did ask Mayhem to list their club in 2008 with the following details "We are The Kingfishers Model Boat Club. We meet on the third Monday of the month except December in Sutton Bridge We sail in Long Sutton on Wednesdays and Sundays We are just off the A17 just in Lincolnshire with members from Linc's, Norfolk and Camb's, for more info contact 01406 350968 or 01945 584241. It was 9 years ago so this may not be current but a polite phone call may elicit the current position. There is another post from 2012 suggesting "Spalding club meet on Sundays behind the NFU offices in Springfields If not The Kingfishers Model Boat Club meet in Sutton Bridge and have the use of a lake in Long Sutton and one in Sutton Bridge. Good luck and I am sure you will find somewhere to sail. Dave
