    I saw this boat in Montauk, NY. she is called the rollover boat as she can right herself when rolled over or pitch-poled in heavy seas. https://uscg44363.com/portfolio/44-foot-motor-lifeboat/ The USCG would do routine rollovers just to train recruits. She could also survive a pitchpole!! They don't do that anymore as a rollover would cost over 10 K US The tragic demise of 44300, February 12, 1997, in she which survived three roll overs and a beaching with the engines still running๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I picked up a box of scrap from a partially completed build. This is a Scrap Build not a Scratch Build. There is enough template scrap left over, so i was able to fabricate the necessary parts. Time will tell๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Now that she is finished, a couple additions: Mast and running lights. Working radar Flags and decals of USCG Patches Water cooled ESC and Motors. I bought this vessel on a whim, I have grown to love her๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

    This is a model I picked up at a Tag Sale some years back. I think I paid $2.00 for it. It is as I bought it, I did nothing to it.

    Fantail Launch
    Fantail Launch Kit bought on ebay. Only problem was, the box only contained scraps and the plans. Being stubborn as I am I decided to build it any way๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ The plans did not call for a mahogany deck, I decided to dress her up

    It is interesting that the exhausts exit from the sides.
    most probably to avert problems from following seas.

    Nice tight joints, any gaps between the planks will show up in the finish.
    I use CA for planking also. It does take a toll on your hands.
    More than once have I glued my fingers together.

    Back to the Dungeon ๐Ÿ˜Š
    (I like my Dungeon, very quiet)
    I started a new build, The Seguin.
    This will be a scratch build.
    I ordered plans from the Net.
    I picked the Seguin as it seemed straight forward and was designed for Steam.
    The keel has been laid.
    The Frames installed.
    The sub deck installed.
    The one by attached to the keel is to keep it from hogging.
    The build will be delayed, so I can process firewood for this winter. (Last Pic)

    The size of the battery is dependent on the Amp Hours (Mah).
    If length is a problem, you could go with two smaller output batteries.
    Dependent on the voltage requirement of the motor and the voltage output of the batteries would determine whether they would be hooked up in series or parallel.
