Longer run time by randhbarker Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 10 days ago
I am using 1 12v lead acid battery in my sea queen with a brushless motor. It’s only giving me about 15 minutes on the water. The boat will get up and go for a few minutes but after that I can have the throttle wide open but the speed has gone. Can I link more than 1 battery together to give me a greater voltage which I believe a brushless motor can cope with. If so which batteries should I use and should I wire in series or parallel? I await your thoughts Thanks

Found her! Now BRP Ivatan of the Philippine Navy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMAS_Brunei_(L_127) So your model must be about 3feet. Nice👍 Next a 1/48 RC Tank ??? Doug 😎

Hi Model boat enthusiasts, This is a photo of almost completed 2 model boats I have almost completed. The Sea Queen 50 years old find. It was found in an attic in a kit. The kit was in a very poor state and most of the timberwork had to be glued back together or remade. I had no plans for it and had to source a copy from the Model Boat website. It is a very nice model. The pilot boat was scratch built and sails very nicely. I have been building boats for about 30years and have built over 25 boats, scratch built all of them. I have included photos of some of my boats.

Glad to help Sid, 'no problems'! Some pics of your build would be nice, how about a Blog ? 😉 Cheers, Doug 😎

Hi Doug I will follow this up. I had to make the cleats , a little unorthodox but they look ok. Many Thanks Sid👍

Hi Sid, for my Sea Scout I used fittings from Krick here in Germany. Several from the 'Riva' series; e.g. jam cleats and tank filler caps you can see in the photos. http://www.krickshop.de/Products/Accessories/Accessories-for... http://www.krickshop.de/Products.htm?shop=krick_e&SessionId=... From the same source I also got some pear drop shaped red & green running lights, a white mast lamp, ship's wheel. Still to be fitted. Other possibilities are, The Model Dockyard http://www.model-dockyard.com/acatalog/Ship_Fittings.html or Cornwall Model Boats. https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/ship_fittings.... Cheers, Doug 😎 PS the fittings I'm using are nicely chrome plated on brass😊

Hi Martin In Australia we do not have many boating enthusiasts so the market for scratch builders are not there. We have hobby shops but they only sell kits. The main suppliers are in Melbourne called "Float a Boat" They do have quite a lot of boat fittings. I source a lot of parts from UK from "Model Boat Bits". Steve is quite helpful to deal with but as always the cost of potage kills it. Regards Sid

Since the demise of Mersey Marine (Ripmax) fitting there are no stylish cruiser type fittings. If you trawl around ebay you will find fairleads and cleats. Not sure what size a lifering should be. I would think at least 1 1/2" diameter as it has to go over an average 18" wide person and I'm guessing the general scale of a Sea Queen would be about 1/12th. Cheers, Martin

Hi Martin Thanks for your help. I have seen a lot of photo,s of the Sea Queen on the internet but none show running lights etc. I have had to make the life preservers as I could not find the right size in Australia. I guess I will have to make the lights also. Regards Sid

Also, don't forget you can get some nice parts from the shop on this very forum. Cheers, Martin
