It is not uncommon to run 50% nitro fuel in .18 size marine engines.

RE: Dumas Hawk picco .21

You can make rear sponsons from insulation foam, 1/16" plywood. That boat was designed to run with rear sponsons.

You could run a .28 in the boat. The only problem might be the engine...

RE: 21 Tunnel Talk

I am running 11 oz. of lead in my VS1 - 1.5 oz. in each sponson tip, 4 in front of the radio box and 4 in back of the radio box.

The O.S. 21 Outboard will not pull a X445 and a X642 might be...

RE: AQUACRAFT'S NEW MISS VEGAS U-18

The OS 18 CVR MX will drop right into the motor mount. The pull start should work fine. Personally, I prefer using a starting belt and my electric starter.

RE: Requesting advice on completing Sk Daddle 40 kit

I would recommend you consider spending the money to upgrade the drive system to a flex cable drive system. However, the cost of that might be more than you paid for the boat.

A good source...

RE: prop help international hobbies formula 402 twin

Are you planning to start one engine backwards to get left and right prop rotation or are the outdrives reversed?

Is that the Hot Shot that calls for a turn fin?

RE: 21 Tunnel Talk

The O.S. 21 is a better engine - it holds all the 21 tunnel class records.

But, some guys still run K&Bs. Just not the guys winning national championships.

The Short Answer - No.

But, I've never been very good at just giving a "Short Answer." The only plans I have are on paper and I had to pay to have them copied. I also invested a considerable...

RE: K&B Outboard

Old JD needs to read posts more carefully. I guess the stuff about the Hot Shot Sprint threw me off. The Hot Shot Sprint 7.5 wood kit might be worth considering. I guess Dumas still sells...

RE: K&B Outboard

You are correct about the starting direction. A good prop for that engine is an Octura X440 or a Grim Racer 40/53. The Dumas Hot Shot Sprint wood kit is a good choice if you like to build. The...

RE: help id boat

What something is worth and what you might be able to get for it are two different values. New this set up cost at least $400 - $500. If you could get 1/2 that you would probably be doing well....

RE: help id boat

Looks like a Sundowner Outboard Hydro. Back in the day they were very poular in SoCal. That's going to be one loud engine with the straight exhaust.

RE: Help identify my hydro

I think it is a Steve Muck Tunnel. I had one way back in the day. Traded it for a Pro Line 5-channel aircraft radio system at a RAMS Hobby Show held at the SeaTac Red Lion. We used to have some...
