Which moror
« on: August 21, 2009, 10:38:24 am »

Hi,
I am just completing a scratch built costguard model which is approx 36" by 9".  I picked up this boat part finished with no plans (I am moving into boats from planes and cars), and I am looking for some advice about which motor to would be suitable.  Can anyone help?
Cheers

Single or twin motors?
Is it a 'fast' launch?

Going by the dimensions it sounds like it's similar to the Billings Waverly.

Related, but off topic-ish - it appears to be in a Canadian-esque Coast Guard livery.

ps For those better able to recommend, the 1:1 scale boat has a top speed of 16kt so it's not really a fast boat.

pps If I *was* to recommend a base line setup, I'd guess at a 600 motor pushing a 30mm 3 or 4 blade Raboesch brass prop which should be happy with a 20A ESC fused @ 15A...

or,

speak with Full Leather Jacket of this parish....
