RE: Seaview Concept II
To be honest about it I really don,t know at this point of the build coast 219. I have never had the orginal seaview in a pond. I have heard of problems of the old design in wanting to dive all the time.On the orginal design the front fins were not level or flat. It had a top curve to the top of the fin,this of course would make the boat wanting to be in the dive position all the time.On this concept II design,the fins are level and flat,from the front of the boat to the back, which should, I hope make the sub more stable and true in the water from looking at the front of the boat there is only a slight down curve to the outside of the front tips of the fins.This is just to give the boat a more shark like look.If it works and helps I really don,t know.Only a test run in the pond this summer will tell.As far as turning, I heard that the single pumpjet systems works great in the water.Today we are installing water intakes,for more flow to the jet.I have seen the moebious seaview videos of the sub in the water,and it looks like they perform quit well. Maybe be its brand of the diving system used?untell later, Dennis.
