Brookes Funrunner build
« on: September 18, 2010, 05:42:57 PM »

well i decided to build something for a little fun down the new boat club near me,the pools not massive but big enough for a bit of fun.
Brooke my near 3yr old daughter has been helping me and shes picked the colours but not got that far yet,hoping in the next few days it will be painted ready to kit out,with a spare outboard i have,scorpion 1080kv motor and seaking 60amp esc,planning on running on 3s and 38mm prop,not building it for speed its for me and brooke to play around with,shes also donated something else towards the build,all will be revealed in the end,but this is what weve built:

Looks good Daz !
Now what you gonna do about transport for ALL the family AND the boats? [ha ha].
its either careful packing or maybe a trailer needed now!
i struggle for space in my volvo estate with 4 boats in and keeping it capable of seating 4, if I take another, then its passengers that loose out  for me !
