Hello,

here is last week video from SAR Training center, it was just great there.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhY3buUjbI8&feature=channel

My EP- Watercat gps was showing 37km/h speed, so it was not as fast as before, but I think it was due to fact, that new keel
is disturbing somehow flow to impellers, so I have now planed off part of keel away, like in real one pce.

BR,
Hannu

Yes I did, the water depth was four meters and luckily the water was so bright that I saw the cabin in the bottom of the lake. We used a long rod and a hook, it really was close that I would have lost the cabin! Maybe 50-100 hours would have been wasted... But I got it up  :police:

Did you not start with electric? why did you change it?

When this thing sails it's going to break the sound barrier. O0

No, the other guy, Hannu is doing the electric version. I have done the gasoline version all the time. It's not so fast as racing-gasoline boats, it goes just right speed in scale. That was the meaning also.

Hello! I'm gonna take a new direction in this project, here is one pic of the 3D-model I made of this boat. This time it's accurate. Next the model is transferred to IGES-format and that is used for machining. We are planning to machine this form from bluefoam, and cover it with fiber glass. This way the boat is becoming very light, strong and accurate. Looking forward to see what happens. I might be the first person in the world who has done model tests for a ship model!  {-) (I mean with my previous 'rehearsal' PV)  :-)
Hey will any body help me with the Stridsbat 90 (Combat Boat 90H) plans.....have been looking high and low for these. :embarrassed:

Hi Nice boat , just started playing with water jets, have you played with impeller design at all, I was going to have a go in that area first using a basic motor set up so I can see if any improvements have been made, before moving on to faster motors,
also what have you used on your decks ,, looks good.

another question if you don't mind , when you covered the Foam hull in glass cloth was that finished hull or was that then used as a mould, and if it was the finished hull how did you get the foam out ?

No, I have not changed impellers as I'm not confident to gain any pros.. Deck is same glass fibre piece with hull, there is sand and paint on top of it. The covered hull was the finished one, I removed the foam with knives, hands and hammer.
