Default Scale Hydro Airboat Update - Finally

Hi all,

Its been a while however the boat is almost complete and ready for some high speed (I hope) testing...should be this weekend.

The boat now has a cockpit which the main fuel tank sits in as well as about 1 Kg of lead in the nose.... this has moved the CoG approx 14 inches fwd (closer to a scale hydro CoG). After looking at scale hydro weights, this boat now falls in the middle of the allowable weight range...Yay

Enjoy rthe Pics

Cheers

Slayer.................it's good to see you back.

It's also great to see that you have not given up on this project. I'll be waiting to hear your running report.

Looking good! Did you decide on a method to keep the transom up out of the water? I'm not sure that prop thrust alone will do it, but perhaps it will. By all means keep us updated!!!!
