Buy them? We are builders, not buyers!

It is 1/6th scale, Barbie size.

It is not electic start, it has an on board glow system.







We cast our own parts.



Note power assit cylinders



insturment cluster.



We have several boats, and a couple in the shop

The exhaust pipe is gas line, it had some kind of yellow plastic on
it and the sand blaster wouldn't touch it so we burnt it first and
then sand blasted it.

It is 5/8" BTW.

Thanks for all the nice comments.





The motor is a Thunder Tiger 61 with a 11X7x3 prop.

How does it run in the water, do you have any videos? I'd like to see how it handles...looks like a nice running boat for sure.

Thanks.

This is my boat. I do a lot of the sanding and most of the scroll saw work on
all the boats, but this on I did almost all the work work and helped with
the paint and graphics. Brad does the set up part.

It is very light, under 4 1/2 lbs. Thunder Tiger 36 with a 10X6 prop.

Insides



It is a 24" version of the spider boat, Designed by Jasper at
RC Airboat World.

Default Outrigger airboat

Great looking airboats guys! I like to thumb through the pictures to get ideas. I turned my brothers outrigger into an airboat. It's powered by a Jett 56lx. It absolutly screams across the lake! I'm still working out the bugs though. I hope these post.

Cool

I had my scale boat out this weekend and remembered that I had not posted it in this thread before. 33" long, 4S power, Scorpion SII-3026/1090 and a 9x6 prop. Runs low 30s, way over scale speed.

Yes, there's a link in the thread Carlosam pointed to, but here it is direct:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSfoFvv_gkk&list=UUw8b4mq7g44FwvGq97q6aKw&feature=share I've made some improvements since that first run, I'll get some decent video when the weather is better.
