Ha, Ha,! Well, that aside, it's really Kool. I like the steamers.
Response by sandkb on the 7 months ago
Really good. What is her length? Cheers
Response by lesliebreame on the 7 months ago
Hull is about 36" long and from ORION Mouldings[i think !!] Its quite nice and shows all the rivets in good detail. We are at present making a Puffer 54" long and i am going to make the hull from soldered tinplate[ i hope !!! ] Les Breame

Hull is from boot sale. Turbine is 3" dia and is driven by twin boilers. I made them both. Speed is not blistering but it goes !!! Boiler pressure is 100lb/sq in. Les Breame

KD Perkasa - Posted: 7 months ago by cormorant

I acquired this boat part built some months ago through Dave M.
I have not put too much scale in detail but I am quite pleased with the overall finish. It is powered by two brushless 1250KV out runners and in the first sea trials I used 12v lead acid batteries. (That video was posted a few weeks ago - mdlbt.com/26793).
This video shows its second sea trial after I was persuaded to use lipos. The difference in performance is very pleasing.
Thank you Dave M for your help and advice during the build.

Great video and the soundtrack is a toe tapper too. Well done !
Response by cormorant on the 7 months ago
Thank you for your compliments.
This is in fact my second Perkasa. I built the first one about 40 years ago (see photo), before the introduction of the GRP hull. Losing interest in the hobby some years later, I sold the boat and have lived to regret it. (I was also the proud owner of a 37" Aerokits Crash Tender powered by a Frog 2.49cc diesel. That went the same way!)
The first boat was quite lively powered by a Merco 61 i/c engine.
No pictures of either I'm afraid.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Master-construction water scooter from Robbe. 2 pieces brushless motor, 2 pieces brushless controller, lithium-polymer battery 5000 mA. Amazing driveability, incredibly stable rate of around 60 kilometers per hour. Battery life in full power for about 15 minutes.

That is fast,looks like fun. Was the Swan radio controlled ?

Nice and fast and steady

I love the way these hulls stick to the water, they are very stable on the turn as well. Nice boat.
