    ๐Ÿ“ Rubber coupling fitted
    5 months ago by Rock ( Able Seaman)

    I have now changed the original coupling to a rubber one, and added a strong support the prophecy and it runs much better now. Think I will play with some adjustment to the motor mount and it should be fine then

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've installed a cheap rubber coupler and it runs much better than the originsl, but I think I might try the hyco one next

    Hi Jacko,
    Beautiful narrowboat, thanks for the pics. Mine is not to scale. What gear ratio did you use to get the speed right?

    Hi Vanya,
    My narrow boat is not to scale, it's beam is 70mm so plenty of room for motor etc. What gear ratio did you use in your boat?

    Has anyone any experience building a radio control narrowboat? I'm wondering what gear ratio to use so that the speed is fairly proportional, if not to exact scale. Boat will be 480mm. Thanks.

    ๐Ÿ“ Astronaut Diva Prop
    5 months ago by Rock ( Able Seaman)
    Flag
    During lockdown i built my first boat, a nice little wooden model called Diva. I've noticed at part throttle the prop tube vibrates inside the hull. Must be because I have a slight miss alignment between motor and prop. I'm wondering if the standard spring type coupling is not helping so have ordered a rubber coupling to see if things improve. If not, has anyone got any ideas? I'd prefer not to have to do anything too major like drill the prop tube out.
