I had the maiden voyage Saturday with a second run on Easter Sunday. She ran great, I'm using a Graupner 900 motor Model Slipway supplied, direct drive. Actually too much power because it reached terminal velocity at about half throttle and the remainder just pushed a bunch of water. (2) 6V batteries in series with a Mack speed controller 7300 http://www.mackproductsrc.com/Speed%20Controls.htm
I still have detail parts to add but I got itchey to run it on a beautiful Saturday and Sunday.
Once I figure it out I'll post the video on you-tube.
Sunday was a liittle windy (probably 10 to 15 ft scale seas and it was extremely stable). I actually took some "greene" water over the bow, had water running out the scuppers I cut out in the stern, and no problems even side to
