Having made application to join Surrey Park Model boat club, came the challenge of getting models to the lake via mobility scooter on 2 trains.
This is what i concocted, it makes the scooter about 230mm or 9" longer but the seat will slide forward about 4"
Scooters & wheel chairs are accomodated in the first compartment of our trains only, as the driver has to place a ramp for access to us, it's a squeeze when 4 scooters/w-chairs are on at the same time.
My scooter 50km per charge top weight 205kg my weight 115kg plenty left for models.
To start i made a fully enclosed carry box for my Sub chaser from a discarded cardboard box (fridge) I fibreglassed all inside corners with 450gsm mat with just resin on the outsides.
My scooter has a 30mm sq tube below the seat for attaching a basket so i bought the next size down and some 19 x 2 mm angle plus 19 x 2 mm flat, so i made a frame a snug fit for the box to sit in.
It took some effort to get the angle where most of the boat box was encompassed in the width of the scooter, there is also a brace that is anchored by the left hand bar of the head rest.
My Seaport tug box will replace the front basket and won't increase the scooter length.
Finished and loaded for test run to Maccas for dinner about 4km round trip to find out if i need to beef up any fittings. ie. Y gun depth charge launcher made of brass and epoxied to the deck, the main reason for the fully enclosed box , any bits that fall off won't be lost.
The Sub chaser is secured within the box with velcro over some 19mm flat steel with some stiff foam tween steel and hull as the pic's show the boat sits on her stern on a foam pad.
Presently working on frame for Seaport the box is done, will continue build and pics as i go.
