Genesis 9000 - Posted: 7 months ago by MouldBuilder
mdlbt.com/41651   >> Permalink
A short video of the first trial of my Genesis 9000 Offshore Power Boat. This is a boat to use whilst I build others.
The trial was seriously hampered by a faulty main switch. The insides must have fallen apart during transportation. I did manage to get an electrical contact to get around five minutes of the trial. The boat ran well but I will have to adjust the rudder to give more movement. Just after the video ended, the boat hit a ripple whilst turning and flipped over. No water entered the hull so all was good, except the switch now refused to work at all. The trial was ended and unfortunately will now have to wait until I return to my river in August.😤
Response by RNinMunich on the 7 months ago
Hi Peter
very unusual problem with the switch😲
You could temporarily replace it with a bullet connector to continue trials.
Glue one end down so that you can quickly unplug the battery one handed. OR: simply short circuit the switch and use the fuse as the 'switch'!?
Boat looks a little heavy / tail heavy? Maybe shift some weight a little forward to give more stability? Happy trialling, cheers Doug 😎
Response by Donnieboy on the 7 months ago
I agree with the weight being shifted forward a iittle bit.Bow high in a catamaran will catch too much air causing the boat to flip.All it takes is a good gust of wind.Good speed on the boat.After trials you'll have a good fast boat.
Response by MouldBuilder on the 6 months ago
I have brought the wiring home we with me. I will change the switch and take it back with me in August.
I must admit that I thought the stern was a bit low in the water. To evenly distribute the weight, I put in two batteries as suggested. I will try to move the batteries forward to change the centre of gravity.😊

More running in trials, burning fuses out, and complete radio outage and bumping the bank. However some progress made on levelling it out, full speed cannot be reached whilst trying to video by my self. 😎 The Captain "Dennis The Menace" is not a good omen, twice he's got in trouble, yesterday the cabin was flooded up to his waist.

Vosper Fire Boat (Crash Tender) a Vintage Aerokits Model 1:16 scale and is 34 inches long, produced from 1950's to 1970's.
This model uses a Vintage Ripmax Bullet 30 DC motor that can run on 24v here it is only on 14.4v it becomes lively on 16.8v.
Response by rolfman2000 on the 7 months ago
It's nice to see vintage Fireboats running anytime. But running with original motors is unusual, and makes this even nicer. Thanks for sharing, as I am halfway through a rebuild of an original Aerokits boat as well. I think mine had a 10cc glow in, but not for long, as its not full of goo like some are. Im putting an equivalent brushless motor in, and hope to have it wet by the end of summer. Best wishes, Dave W 😊

It's Eaton Park in the fine city of Norwich.😊
Response by cormorant on the 6 months ago
We are holidaying in Happisburgh for the next couple of weeks. Is Eaton Park your club venue? If so we would like to visit.

Harbor Models Steam Generator!
I have tested the steam generator.
And it worked like it should.
It makes quite a bit of smoke!
It also smells like live steam.
It should add some great detail.
To my model tug Brooklyn!
Response by Donnieboy on the 7 months ago
That will look great in the Brooklin.That's a good amount of steam being generated.If anybody is looking for a steam generator that is a good one.

Perkasa - Posted: 7 months ago by Lauriem

This is a 49" Perkasa built from a ply Precedent kit - the build blog is on this site. Videoed from a 46" Fireboat on a lake in Western Australia. Neither boat is running at top speed, which is spectacular but overscale! Both boats have identical brushless motors. Apologies for the video being a bit long, and for the water on the lens, but this is a first attempt and I hope you enjoy the music.
Response by figtree7nts on the 7 months ago
Very good Video!
I enjoyed it immensely....
Response by lesliebreame on the 7 months ago

Very nice video Lauriem !
I'm from France and now on the way re-building of the same initialy started 40 years ago (when I was young !) and I would need your experience (if you agree)
Tell me please if you are OK.
See you
