Old SkDaddle, old school handiwork
 
6 Attachment(s)
I picked up an old SkDaddle Too at a swap meet a few weeks ago, the workmanship is so nice....
1--home made exhaust stack, throtle bellcrank
2--home made fuel tank tucked under gunnel
3--water lines have tabs soldered on and screwed to little blocks
4--water inlet comes up thru back of motor mount (home made..)
5--homemade water outlet bracket/tube
6--servos in the factory servo trays, ever use those things? not me..
7--Rx mount is four little riser blocks, with pins for rubber bands
8--whip antenna...I'll bet the additional trim tabs came later...
9--and who did this botch job on the undersides? Not he guy who did the rest of it.
10--Anyway, the thing is just kinda' cool

My pal Dave had a 36" with a K&B 40 and the MRC "Turbo-Trol" (Graupner) jet.
He had a big SKDaddle 60 with an O&R ignition engine too. So between the two of
us we covered the 4-model SK Daddle family lineup. All those boats melted away over the years.
He is building a 36" "jet" as well, I cut out 2 kits for us. I got the jet units from Hobby Lobby (Tennessee) many moons ago.
