New Build Idea
« on: October 14, 2009, 09:45:09 PM »

Hi there, thinking about building this. Real one uses 3 huge waterjets! Would make an interesting model, and if fitted with 3 jet drives would go pretty welll I think. Anyone got any suggestions for a hull that could be converted? Thought maybe a large pt boat or similar, will be hunting round at Blackpool, happy sailing! Dave :-))

Does look similar but smaller,possibly designed by the same people? Plans would be useful as I wont be doing an exact copy but something along similar lines. Was thinking of building her BIG about 5 ft so shes got real presence on the water and can get her looking right,keep us posted on your progress,would like to see how she looks,thanks,Dave. :-)) :-))
