Speedline Jet Drives by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 10 months ago
Expensive $426

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 11 months ago
Tried seabreacher out with new ballast and brushless setup.....Had a nice long walk through the woods to retrieve the model after it beached itself on the other side of the waterway...😱😱😱

new brighton model boat lake by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 12 months ago
Looks a nice lake ...Is it salt water or fresh water

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Just spent a few hours fitting brushless motor to seabreacher....and 150amp esc ...problem working at these high motor speeds is vibration and motor has actually bent the driveshaft which is brass 6 mm ...next step is new shaft of steel....

Hot melt glue by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi hot melt glue has quite a few good uses in model building but the main problem I had was with the glue gun itself....keeps getting blocked up and the sticks keep jamming....any solutions to this guy's ?

Sea Breacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi ...the model is scratch built.....don't think you can buy them...seems to be based on a gnat aircraft design with fins instead of wings and powered by a waterjet.......well it should be when I get it put back together 😁

Aldridge model boat club by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
I like the website...sounds really good facilities ....got to get my stuff back together and I will pop down

Sea Breacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Thank you for the video of seabreacher dave....looks great.... running on 11.2 volt must make a big difference as it was nowhere near that fast when I tried it.....its now in bits and I'm going to update it to 22volt and brushless with a 150volt esc ....should be fast or blow up 😱

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Good point Dave ...seem to recall a 50 mmwaterjet by graupner did have a max motor size and a ic equivalent when I looked it up previously.....Not straight forward then.

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Great feedback guys looks like going for a brushless motor is the way to go....going to cost a bit for the upgrade so Im researching it first to get it right...

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Just tried seabreacher on the lake everything working fine but its underpowered at the moment....suggestions for hardware updates welcome guys 😀

Sea Breacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Yep that's the exact model I now own. Have you any bids of it on the water ?

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
Hi I have a 36 inch model of a seabreacher dolphin boat powered by a 50mm waterjet and a 800 brushed motor on an 11.5v lipo.I have not got it onto the water yet and just wondered if anybody with a jetboat could say if this setup is powerfull enough
