There is a little crane on the upper rear deck, but I was thinking of big power driven one down on the deck. A sort of feature item.    ;)

Got ya now Kenny, I know there's a small crane (just pretending i'd forgotten :embarrassed: %)..

 On the large crane scope, She could go down well as an ROV/Dive support vessel perhaps.

By the way Guys, Aziz will be re-named under the title of 'Vos ........' something! As one the of the offshore fleet with Vroon Offshore. :-))

- Is anybody having problems with Photobucket? As it wont let me upload any new photo's...over 3 days actually Guys.

- Bow thruster is in, so my nerves have calmed down a bit, and ok, it wasn't quite as bad as i thought it would be, and actually looks quite good for a first Thruster installation. As hopefully you will all agree when i get the photo's sorted. %)

- Advice electrically - I have the 12V motor's, plus the supplied bow thruster from Model Slipway. So, would it be ok to use these in conjunction with a 12V 12ah Battery, with Mtroniks Viper marine 25's ESC's ??

 And i assume that i will need an ESC for the Thruster also?

Thanks for your pateience Everyone, it is much appreciated.

Hi Adam.

12 amp hour eh  %).  That should be enough to run all day and into the night.   I've found 7 A/H is enough for a lake visit and it's a bit lighter as well.

Regarding the bow thruster, does it have a 12 volt motor ? It will need a separate ESC to be able to control it. That way it will be able to control a different voltage , should the thruster be another voltage.    :-))

Cheers Ken,
 Long running is the idea really. In thinking about it, im pretty sure the Thruster is Graupner and therefor will be 7.2V ? correct me if i am wrong anybody.

Should get around to a test fit of radio gear mid-week all being well.  :o

Hi All.... Im alive!! haha no, just been working away again...

 Hope were all well, just started to crack on with Aziz again, all running gear now installed and relatively happy although the radio gear has yet to be tested once all wiring done!! Done the painting on the hull below waterline too.

 Cracking on slowly but surely anyway, so Pics to come soon.

 Cheers,

Adam.   :-)

Hi All,

 Quick question on Batteries.... I thought...fantastic don't to buy any as I have a few large 12v SLA's....however, they've proven slightly to big to fit underneath the decks..so... where's the best place to get batteries nowadays??

Cheers Guys  :-)

Hi Adam

Can you not lay it on it's side. It is quite safe to this with SLA's

Cheers Guys,

 Tried the battery on it's side, but it's pretty much the same, and would be a incredibly tight fit.

Cheers,

Adam.

Can you post a picture of the room left inside your hull as I'm  thinking I had enough for a battery box to contain a 7.5 AHr inside mine.  (see pic)

Is it possible to alter things to make it fit ?

Cheers,

 Im not at home at the minute but will be at the weekend so I will have a look at possibly re-arranging things to fit the batt. inside. She's not quite being built to plans anyway, so mod's would benefit the overall orginality I guess!

Update time!!! after so, so long away!
So, this is where she's upto at present, and hopefully I can crack on the rest of this week and next!




 
Comments, advice and anything else is always welcomed!
 
I received some fantastic bits this morning, from Macs Mouldings (many thanks for those), including 2 containers - which will hopefully act as a weight and reduce the chances of water ingress into the hull.
 
Thanks all  :-)

Hi all, quick question or 2 if anyone can help or advise...
 
 Now, I've installed the 2 ESC's for the 2 shafts, yet to install the ESC for the Bow Thruster... First question, I assume I'm ok to run the BT ESC off a completely different battery??
 
Ok, second question then - I don't tend to use Fuses (Yes I know i'm playing with Fire a little, but I'm not partcularly confident or knowledgable with electronics) - am I tempting fate to much or will I be ok? .... I've been alright without Fuses in any of my previous models.
 
 As always, help and advice is welcomed.  :-)

Most people would be alright without a seatbelt - until things go a little pear-shaped. Same with fuses.

Most of the recommended fuses are to supposedly protect things like escs but that's 'all'. But a short near the battery is a big risk as aside from running the battery and wiring the whole boat could go up in smoke.

So if nothing else I recommend a fuse in the main feed from the battery, I'd suggest a 30A for your boat.

A separate battery for the Bow thruster will do no harm at all. Also these motors are usually only 6 volts anyhow.

It's no trouble to fit a fuse.  Pleeeeeze.

One day down on the lake you will REGRET not fitting a FUSE and all you will see is acrid black smoke and yuor pride and joy will burts into flames and go up like a viking longship and the sad loss will be reported on here either by yourslef or another fellow model boater and all we will say is TOLD YOU SO.
 
And belive you me we dont want to do this.
 
For goodness sake fit a fuse on your batts and the speed controllers PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO THIS
