It runs well ;-)
Heavy wheather isn't testet at yet, but it runs well on normal ambient conditions.
There is less swell than with conventionel hull of my ABEILLE.
It looks not as sensational as the typical "dent" at midship of normal hulls, but at same speed. There are only ~3 smaller waves, probably a better degree of efficiency?
In fact, we should scale down the characteristics of water in 1/50 to get a realistic effect of the nose...
The hull is powered by 2x35W (effective power) Bühler engines at 75mm Raboesch props.
That will suffice to a upper scale speed but only less reserves to pull sth.
Be aware of the Gr...ner Voith-Schneider (as i mentioned to read above?). I've seen a Bow (about ~25kg) here in Germany with this propulsion, but it didn't run well.
-in the meantime-
-runinng gear is descibed above, that's what you mean?
-cargo deck is a "dummy". It's only a 0,5mm GFR with a under-contruction and wooden sheeting. I can lift it off complete, sealing of inner life is a level down.
- I can lift off the bridge (seldom used), and can pull out the rear wall of superstructure like a drawer (?)
