    1/6 - 1/8 scale PT boat

    I am thinking of building a 1/6 or 1/8 scale PT Boat (10-14ft) I have a 33" dumas kit and a scratch built 1/20 scale pt boat. Anyone have any experience building a boat of this size? i have already re scaled my plans and drawrings from 1/20th to 1/8. Looking for an idea for a clutch/gear box and engines (2 gas) that would fit nice in this boat.thinking ofwater cooled with functional scale exhaust as on my 1/20th scale but dont know of any motors that would be big enough for a boat this size.


    Thanks,
    Mike

    Might as well do what Robert Voorhee did with his large scale PT boat... 15 feet,... Ride in it.
    I believe the smaller 8 foot model runs on three trolling motors.

    Sounds like a cool project.

    Looked at Surpluscenter for an engine lately?

    To water cool you need to have new tops made = $$$. I'm thinking a couple of diesels could possibly be aircooled with forced air - just throwing it out there... I like the idea of scale mufflers.

    Check this link to size a model boat motor.
