Using the Taub plans sounds like a good idea - until you realize that you’d have to scale them up sixteen times. The chances for error/distortion would be pretty great, I doubt that Kinkos would be...

This is a cool project, but it is far outside the experiences of 99.9% of the members in this forum, the best we can give you are educated guesses.

“Everybody” asks that question because they want to supply you with the best answer. The work a motor does (watts) is determined by the voltage and the amps used. Watts = Volts x Amps. All the motor...

Snow and wet grass are not very hard, but ice within the snow could be enough to dent the foam. I would cover the bottom with the ply and resin, and use the ‘glass on the sides and top. 3 oz is...

It appears to be the standard ProBoat 45 amp marine controller, the ID may be under the velcro. It is programmable, are you using LiPos or the old round cells? If the former then it MUST be...

Sigh. Last chance. Unanswered questions:

Rpm range?
Muffler or tuned pipe pressure?
Where do you want to mount the tank, on the deck or behind/in front of the engine?
