Nicely done Bill, a good run by the sounds of it. I wimped out ( :embarrassed:) as it's been throwing it down with snow here, so I stayed in and started working out the wiring mods I have to do.

Hi Dan
Yes 1 or 2 ??
How fast do you want the boat to go?
Do you want to race it?
Or is it going to be a fun boat?
There is a very good RTR boat called a "SUPERVEE 27"  I have seen the build/test run DVD & it looks like a Good starter boat. Have a look at the OMRA web site. http://www.omra-uk.org/ There is sometimes some second hand boats on there. I hope that helps If not pm me. Cheers

Hey I'll have you know I've won more model car races than you've had cold sunday dinners for being at the lake too long ;)

I'll happily have a go at Llanberis Bill ok2 ok2 ok2 ok2

Haha Andy i figured you would have NO FEAR lol .Mind you i dont blame Bill ,id be the same after all the work hes put into his boat id be scared to let anyone have a go  ok2.
  Dan the best starter boat would be a small vee hull,take your pick theres usually lots on ebay.I dont have any right now but i will have some small  fibreglass vees in a cpl of weeks or so arround the 32" mark just a bare hull,theyre very fast little hulls drop me a pm if interested.Anything from a .21-.28 motor would work really well.

My excuse is that due to the inclement weather I might have been called in to work to go snow clearing. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it rigidly!!!  ok2

No fear whatsoever, thats why my Crusader 3 WAS going to have a Zen in it, until everyone but Bill and Greg said it wouldn't work ;)

There is a nice little V hull in the shed as I say for 50 I think, has recently been done up and is ready to go. Powered by and SC 45 it went very nicely and quickly the other day, say if you are interested and I will take a pic when I next can.

Hi Martin.
Andy has NO chance of driving my Hydro.
It is fair to say that I was down the lake at 8.30 this morn. That was 1/2 hour before Andy showed up. Yes I did leave after i did 2 runs with the Hydro which is what I had intended to do. If Andy wanted to help out with them sailboat  Joby's no one forced him to stay there. Anyway I went home and carried on with my Z class boat. I am going to let Andy race it at Stevenage this year. Come to think of it I have not seen Andy Driving any Fast racing type boats because he hasn't got one that run's.

Hehe you haven't seen the cars :-)

They're all packed away nicely at the moment for the winter, hopefully they won't do a Blue Peter Turtle on me and die in hibernation...

Will we see the Z next week, can't wait to see it :-))

hi guys thanks for the quick replys.
firstly, i doubt i would race the boat as there are no clubs near me that hold any IC races so it would just be for fun. i would like it to reach about 30 mph or faster O0
Thanks for the offer andyn but i would like to have a go at assembling all the interior and have a go at my own paint job.
i do like the look on that orange Deep V looking hull on the last picture.

Hi Dan.
Thats my Z class OMRA boat. I am building it up but the boat has been run by another owner. It has a 12 size engine, which is the class size engine. If I keep at it I may be running it next weekend.

Hi Rich
I don't think so. As for going green. It has been proven that after model power boats have been run on lakes the oxegen level goes up a bit in the water. Happy Fish. How greens that??? Seem even fish are petrol heads.

Yes Andy. Seems there is a small hole for the Ariel to go out and it is not sealing at the bottom of the box.  More Glue !
