    ๐Ÿ“ Outboard Motors

    Sorry about the typographical error, guys. The model is indeed 50cm long. Does anyone have experience of the Graupner outboards? Some seem to have brushless motors so should have some oomph.

    I have acquired an old 50cm wooden model boat which requires a vintage style electric outboard motor. I am finding sourcing a motor very difficult. I would welcome advice. I am willing to take a second hand motor if anyone has one.

    I recently acquired a Mantua Bruma part kit off e-bay. The three sheets containing the laser cut hull frames are missing. Can you buy these sheets from anywhere or does anyone by any chance have these sheets lying around. I have a full set of plans. The alternative would be to cut out new frames using the plan as a template. What technique/tools would it be most adviseable to use to cut the plywood

    ๐Ÿ’ฌ my Sea Rover project

    I have two sea rovers - both bought off e-bay. The first is in virtually original condition down to the original motor and speed controller although the speed controller now seems to have given up the ghost so will be replaced with a viper plug and play. I have added a small mast and wired in nav and masthead lights. it sails beautifully and creates a load of interest at the pond side
    The second more recent acquisition is an abandoned project, but with most of the construction work done. I have had to rebuild the windscreen frame and I have done this by laminating plasticard. I have to say the finished affect is pretty good although purists are probably tearing their hair out at the very thought of using plasticard! Ah well everyone is entitled to their opinion.
