Excellent news Harry. DM could alway wear a baseball cap (backwards obviously) to protect his toupee?

do you tend to go for higher kv setups and small props, in general? I know this boat was engined by something in your spares box, but in general?

when you look at real speedboats and record breaking craft it always seems to me that the props are very small.

Don't forget the gold-embroidered liberty bodice - and Jack Daniels ear-rings, of course... You didn't believe me, did you?

Those are really cool accessories!

I have gold saxophone/euphonium/trombone cuff links for when I play out.

...and you make model boats as well? There's no hope for some of us, is there?

BTW that's three cuff links. What kind of shirts do you wear.....and how many arms do you have???

DM (No toupe - yet...)

Hi All

The replacement brushless motor was not working out, so replacing it with a 35mm Surpass C3542-1250kv 850 Watt motor.

I installed one in the Corona Cabin Cruiser and is well very well.

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.
