Hi john


Yes , hopefully Sam will have a bit more control , now I have changed it to tank steering and fitted a speed controller on the bow thruster.


See you Sunday

  Hi Ray. Thanks. I ended up fitting brushless They Do The Job well, I would like to get some wider blades so they would
   Paddle more water at low speed.

Hi Poll,

It looks lovely at the pool.  (How it should be for boaters.   :-)) )

Do you not worry about the  'loads' tipping over on the barges ? as they are pricey items and not designed for the water.

Cheers
