I would assume that the funnel stowage would be for passages, but if it was likely to be used or in confined or harbour waters it would be under the Cranes.

Richard,

    Just started the build of my Robbe Schuetze today. Looks like a fun build. Took almost 2 hours just to build the stand! Finished the Robbe S-130 last week and waiting for the ice to thaw here to give her run. Your Schuetze is coming along quite nicely! Cheers.

Hi Bill
She was fun to build, though dont take their dimensions and instructions as gospel.
Enjoy your build.

Didn't do anything today to boat. Went to Westbournes to pick up the final bits I need. SWIMBO went shopping and left me chatting and spending her money [well she did say get what you need]. Any way was to bushed when I got home to do any.
Photograph of last bits just to show I wasn't totally idle.

DickyD,
What size and make are those props, they look like Raboesch, (yes that is the correct spelling )

They are 40mm diameter.
Cant remember the make but Westbournes are now having them made and they reckon they are the Rolls Royce of props.
They certainly look it.

George Sitek is not in our traders directory, but he is reliable, helpful, and has good quality items.   No, I am not a relative, just a very satisfied customer.

Richard,

    Did you have any problems installing the bulkheads particularly D08 and B07? Looks like they're not going in without lots of sanding!

They are the front bulkheads attached to the motor/battery frame. Very tight fit. Just wondering if its just me or if anyone else had a problem here. Numbers actually D008 and B007. Cheers.

Hi Bill
Several of the bulheads including those needed a bit of sanding. Quite a lot on some. Just make sure the tops are all in the right place.
Top of stern is also quite critical as they dont allow any extra self adhesive decking only just enough.

Tested the Schuetze on the water for the first time yesterday.
Found one slight problem. Having used a 6v lead acid battery instead of the Robbe ones I found that my battery being heavier it pushed the bow down a bit.
When I had painted the hull I used Robbes dimensions to mark out the water line. I now found the water line at the bows to be under water [not good].
I then had to move the battery back as far as it would go and the repaint the bottom of the hull.
It is now all finished as the last job was to check out the range of the radio control and this was found to be fine at 200 yards which is more than I will ever need.
I now have to wait a fortnight for the maiden voyage as better half has things arranged plus I have to wait till son isn't working as I need him to fetch and carry.
This build has been most enjoyable, have now got to persuade the better half to buy another one.

Looking good Richard. Bit of a pain to repaint the waterline but it turned out well. My Schuetze is presently at the primer stage. Been waiting for warmer, dry weather here. Cheers.

Richard,
How did she perform on the Robbe motors and 6volts, what size props did you go for in the end?

Only had her in a pool Bob. Tried out motor, runs quiet and chucks a lot of water out the back. Doesn't run as fast as it did with the 9.6v but not too bothered. Will give it a whirl.
I have fitted the Sitec 40mm 3 bladed ones as they appear to have the same pitch as the Robbe plastic ones they supplied.
Has your one got crew on it Bob and if so where did you get them ?

Hi Richard,

    Do you think that the Robbe measurements for the waterline are incorrect or did you have to readjust your waterline because of the batteries you used? Cheers.
