looking good Bill you have done a great job , just one thing  %) on the vid is it at full speed , if so then ok if there is some more left in reserve would a water deflector fitted to the bow be needed as the front could act as a scoop  :embarrassed: .

Yes there is loads left. It was running on some crummy 6 volt jell cells just to test it out.  I was playing around moving the batts to get the right balance. They started off a bit more towards the rear and it was to nose up. Martin is going to send me a 4amp/h batt which will need to be position for the best ride etc. Still I was very happy with it's 1st outting.

We just need to see you on the water and enjoying it.
The generosity of the people on this forum speaks for itself,i have been helped,and helped others.
Just shows that model boating gives satisfaction in many ways.
And a big thanks to Bill and those who donated parts for making this young man,his reality come true.
