Default garwood speedster

Anyone here built one of these with the plans available on Ebay?

I got the plans a few weeks ago, and I just finished laying the keel and bulkheads.

Ill get some pics this week and post them up here.

I was wondering about what people are running for power in them. THe one that I have ais a 30" version. It looks as if it was a 24" Sterling plan set that has been scaled up.

Any input would be awsome

A Graupner Speed 700BB 8.4V motor, 10 battery cells, an Mtroniks Viper Marine 40 ESC, and an Octura 0937/3 prop is what I would run in that boat. Can't wait to see your pictures!

Kmot, its been a long time, I used to post alot on rumrunner under Tbone.

I have been out of the hobby for a while, but Im back.

As for power, I was thinking of a SS1, running 12 cells. I have just enough room to run one of my turbo trannys.

Ill try toget those pics up in the coming days.
