I looking for a home for my SC40M (6.5cc) engine. I would like to build a Vic Smeed Remora which was designed for a 3.5cc diesel and is 30" long. I think it would need enlarging, and +20% would give a length of 36". Does anyone have a view on what size it should be?

The magazine item on Remora is posted in the thread 'Vic Smeed's Model Boat Designs' -


A build of one was recently discussed on the Model Boat Mayhem forum -


Looks a superb design, hope you get sorted with the size.

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.
