MODIFICATIONS: Customizing a Dumas Dauntless to be a replica her big sister, a 1940's Sparkman & Stephens high speed Commuter. Way too many details & mods to list. This is an attempt to build a miniature replica of the original yacht both inside and out. Years of planning and research has gone into duplicating this yacht in miniature. Original blueprints and many photos were collected and used as a guide to build this model. As new information about the original yacht surfaces, it is implemented onto the miniature.

Dumas Steam Tug Brooklyn 
Electric Powered Non-Electric Powered
ENGINE: Pittman 9414H255-R2
SERVO: Futaba
TRANSMITTER: Ace Nautical Commander
BATTERY: Zippy 5000 MAH 11.1V LIPO
ESC: Astroflight 208D
MODIFICATIONS: This boat was customized from the stock kit to be an exact replica of the full sized Brooklyn steam tug. . The sleeper cabin was removed and a ladder and platform replaces it, the ugly fenders were changed to tires, custom graphics were applied all around and the paint scheme matches the original tug color scheme. The tug has a Harbor Models smoke unit and the motor is linked to a Fine Design geared turbo transmission that gives the boat a wonderful scale speed that is powerful enough to pull a loaded rowboat around a lake. This boat is so reliable that I nicknamed it 'Old Reliable". I love this tugboat!

Kyosho Streamliner 
Electric Powered Non-Electric Powered
MODEL Kyosho Streamliner
RECEIVER: Spektrum 2.4
SERVO: Futaba
TRANSMITTER: Spektrum 2.4
MODIFICATIONS: Stock boat for the most part. The original owner added a scale driver to give it better looks. This boat will eventually be converted to LIPO to be consistent with the rest of my fleet.

V24One Design 
Electric Powered Non-Electric Powered
MODEL V24One Design
ENGINE: KV1520 Brushless Motor
SERVO: Futaba (Rudder)
BATTERY: 11.1 5000 MAH LI-PO battery
MODIFICATIONS: This is a 1/8 scale replica of a V-24 one design. This boat is all fiberglass contruction and reinforced with epoxy for added strength. I set up steering perameters on the outdrive so that the degrees the outdrive can swing are limited. This helps by keeping the boat under control in turns at high speeds. The prop was changed to a Grimracer 52/3 to enhance existing performance. I made a custom RC equipment holder inside the boat for the LIPO, steering servo and receiver. This enabled me to add a bigger LIPO and keep the COG correct.
