With a draft of 40 mm centre 30 mm outer she is nearly flat bottomed the jets are 20 mm D going more level well she can This a small boat 21'' and will bounce easily but for the jets to fire above water she'd have to be nosediving.

Anyway the OP asked if the jets had to be below or partially above the waterline I say below the internal plumbing layout also determines it as the props need to be submerged

Very nice Neil I was tempted to get some buckets but so far touch wood as she will turn on the spot

How can the outlets be OUT of the water Ashley think again

on My Pibber at low speed the jets are completely below surface and as speed in creases and planes they are deeper. This creates a furrow astern the jets are firing down at whatever the hull angle the the Plume you see is coming from below surfacecapture.jpg

Yeah no sat nav then.Only thing other than Compass we had a direction finder but that had to be helped by the guys in trouble sending short signals. Map reading A to B no problem as the observer had to read as well as the pilot Reconnaissance more the observer for 6 figure contact shouts.

Longest flight in one George? we did from Hannover down to Toulon mainly Esso roadmapsmiley on route to Tobruk . Needless to say the Med was a bridge too far that was on an LST. The return was on surface as our fitter found a wee crack in tail rotor gearbox. All Siouxs were grounded then till checked. ours were brought back by Hercules.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
