Nice graphics Martin.  You may find the "Fast and Furious" is already on an OMRA boat (can't remember who's) but it doesn't matter if there's more than one :)

Fair play for getting stuck in though!  If you or anyone needs any info/help with any type of grp mouldings i'd be glad to help, 18 years in the industry for my sins!

keep up the good work!

How spooky that you should mention engine height Phantom. Have just refixed the motor in mine and then was gettign toward refixing the deck, tried the hatch and realised that the blooming engine is now about 3/8" taller than it was (New mounts). So now my little drivers are going to have to sit there with a spark plug cap next to them.

Wonder if I can turn it into an airscoop?

 ;) Still got a few knocking around in the shed Martin, the CMB90 takes some beating and weighs next to nothing. (Relatively).

But I do like the convenience of petrol, I must be getting lazy.

Best place for em in my opinion lol i hate nitro engines ,a real pain in the ass to start and too expensive to run too!!.I like the idea of turning up at the lake with my boat and radio and some fuel and having hrs of fun instead of carting a truck load of starting gear to the lakeside. 8)

Aw, come on Martin, don't pussyfoot around - if you don't like something just say so ;D ;D
I'll be popping out this weekend for a gallon of EDL and 4 gallons of 5% - only 84 :o ;D
Danny
PS Can you remember diesels - they're even cheaper (and slower) :P

Danny, i'm gonna opt to bang a sparky in this hull and see how i get on, seems to me to be an all round cheaper option. If i dont get on with it then i can build another hull and do a nitro!  sorry to let the side down buddy.........

petrol is a step up not down its the future in boats,the zen 7 is 26cc and puts out an amazing 7.3 hp the record for a petrol boat running a zen is 102 or 3 mph.also the boats are bigger which is a pluss especially when your running in chop.if you want to learn more about gas boats as the americans call them take a look here!!

And here was me just starting to work on Phantom to sell him my CMB. Never mind. By the way Martin - keep meaning to ask each time I come here, what did you use the bloomin great hammer for in picture 1 on this thread? Surely not the boat? Or did you have Danny round to remove some offending engine mounting rails?  :o :o

Sorry glenn i have to admit i have a phobia of nitro engines from past experience although i do have one lol i just hate carrying all the gear thats why i decided to go witha petrol engine.Nitro is faster for most boats under a certain size though,but the way petrol engines are improving the speeds are getting higher so the difference i guess is a personal choice.Im sure that cmb will make a boat that size fly no doubt about that.The rubber mallet in that pic was used to fit the rails to the bulkheads as they were a nice snug fit.On this build they all slot together forming a framework which makes for a very strong boat.I was been a bit tongue in cheak when i was putting nitro engines down by the way!! :D

well i finally got my stuffing tube today and its bent to shape and test fitted,ive made a bracket for it out of ply with studs epoxied into it i will put a piece of ali bent to shape over the top of the tube to hold it in place.seems like it will work well,i will also install a small length of larger tube at the transome for this one to fit in so i can remove it easy when needed.the small length of larger tube will be glassed into the hull.once i get my new ferrule i will cut the flex to length and fix the flex into the ferrule using loctite retaining compound no 603.yup no solder just like the europeans do it!! ;D

One of them Europeans like you, and me, you mean?

Yep, we have funny old ways eh?
 
I would still silver solder it - and an angle grinder with a nice thin (Steel cutting) blade went through my flexi cable nicely.

He he,

Glenn. Feeling not very European just now........

I aint European and never will be the sooner mr Blair and his pals realise we are Brittish and proud of it the better ,why did we fight two wars to stop the Germans running this country for him and his pals to give them the powers 60 years later  >:(..This country needs a shake up !!phew rant over lol.
 loctite retaining compound will do the job if it handles a zens power it will handle a weedy i hate soldering too !!.

 :) Thought that might get a reaction - feel better now?

Ho Ho. If you want I can get one of my engineers to silver solder the ferrule on, no cost to you only postage, if you want to take this up, get the length set up and PM me for the address and I can get you sorted out.
