well its 3 foot long has a single motor and prop in it, I believe it was made for the making of the TV show one of a few thats about all I know as it was a present, I will give it a run on the water and see what happens.

Hi 17-21,

I've got a basic hull and super structure awaiting building. But it will never get to that standard.
I was intending to use a water jet drive, to get round the problem of the clear spinny thinghy at the stern.

I've wanted one since I first saw it on TV, but the build was too complicated for me back then.

Good luck with it. Make sure you sail it  in clear water with plenty of buoyancy inside.

regards Bob
