    Starting to build the boat, as static model. Chicken out. My base of operations lol is lough key Ireland. Boat would not be really suitable for the lake. light hull small motor. Adding wieght would help stability but cancel out any performance. Might just float away, having me do bay watch rescue style, again. No thanks. |_| sank my 2L milk bottle boat 14/16mm hieght boat.

    Hi,
    Just wondering how many degrees does that layout get for the rudder. Guess would be cool. Just wondering cause my next build is a m barge, the barge it's self is called 45m Irish in land water...... it's still only rattling around my head at the min.
    The real rudder give 180 deg by hand.

    Nice boat
    Joe
