Batteries and 320 amp fan cooled speed controller included, currently running off 12v 6 amp batteries. space needed for new project £150 collection from Lincoln would be advisable due to size and weight. But could meet up if the distance is reasonable
hi all. I have purchased a yacht hull and deck as my next project from that well known auction site, but am struggling to find the maker or the name of the yacht?. it came complete with a fibreglass deck, measures 48" long 10" beam and 11" to keel bottom, I am sure some one out there knows what it is based on or who manufactured it. I have started the build and am going to loosely base it on the 1930 yacht enterprise, mainly the sail plan. have added a few photos if it helps thanks for any help. basilsdad
