    I cut the inside with a jigsaw and the outside with bandsaw, first the inside cutting an filling, than the outside on the bandsaw, this way itโ€™s strong and wonโ€™t bend when handling

    Hi, the frames ar 1mm thick alluminium.
    But it went wrong with glueing the. Windows not the frames.
    Have to repaint now, itโ€™s a learning experience ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚

    But canopy glue will do the trick you think

    Always wanted a Gulf branded boat so thatโ€™s wat is had to be ๐Ÿ˜›

    This summer mostly solving technical difficulties.
    Replaced the prop shaft for a 4mm flex shaft, with 40cm it was to long and made lot of vibration.
    Tried different motors, now got 3670 1550KV with 40mm 3 blade prop and runs great with good speed,
    Also made water cooling with 2 micro pumps.
    After al technical problems the build is progressing again ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Dekking finished and made side pods,

    Hello, drive shaft is both side balbearings, I am running 4s with 35mm prop, esc is 70A. Test in bathtub with amp meter is not running above 25/30A then itโ€™s not cutting. Only On open water, I think itโ€™s more a problem with receiver interruption.

    Update: after repainting 2 times in last 3 months, the lesson learnt is that perfection is a utopia.
    It is wat it is, now installing the basic hardware to do some testing kn the water.
