There's Dougs woody plans, alternatively you could look up Zipkits website & buy a wooden kit. That hull looks like a cross between a crackerbox & a deep vee.

http://www.zippkits.com/

The zipp kit option would be easier & cheaper than buying all the wood & cutting it up. you also get building instructions with them.

The kit includes all the wood pre cut, all you will need is glue, clamps, sandpaper, weights, paint and time. You will have to buy all the hardware like rudder engine etc separately, some of it you can get from Zippkits though.

And I missed push rod/radio box seals.

There's nothing like building your own boat. There's no better way to learn how it all works.

Placing that in the kiddy pool did him no good as there was no water going through the system.

It connects to the prop shaft and is notched to match the propeller so that it will turn the prop and not let it spin on the shaft.

hang on I'll post a pic

Let's say that it can be done but a big hassle. You have to find a recoil that will turn in the opposite direction thne reverse lay flex cables and left rotation props. For a weedie engine it's simply not worth it. Those that have the serious money do it.

you would probably be less out of pocket by picking up an RCMK RX254-R, it's already counter rotated, the RX254 is the normal rotation version. I don't see them on Gizomo's website though. You can look at them at www.RCMK.com

I had a clutch and water pump in it Ron, so all was cool. no flex was hooked up.
