This is Brutus and it will be the next fully new design coming off the production line and it is planned to be the Autumn project.

At the moment its a concept of a 4ft model speedboat based on the seaaxe design of hull.

Nope. The bow is on the right and it is vertical. The idea is to cut through the waves rather than try to ride over them - hence the radical shape.

Brutus has a knife bow and as Dave says it is designed to slice through the water rather than skim over them.

Hi Amy

At the moment its just an idea that is kicking around in my mind and it only exists as a few sketches but I have to admit that I am looking forward to building it.

Dear All

Has anyone ever come across an engine mount / drive combo like this?

I would rather buy than build such a gearbox but can't locate a suitable unit, I need two to suit a pair of 600 size motors

Paul,

You don't need a gearbox. A toothed belt drive from the likes of SHG Models will do the job perfectly 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.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
