Martin, if you spent as much time building as you did on the forums you'd be finished by now  ;D ;D :-*

As an expat in Sweden what am I? European, pseudo-Scandinavian or just an Expat!

If Tony is so popular how the h*** did he get back in, all I hear from the UK is disgruntlement (is that a word?).

Back to boats, less talk, more action.............lets get this thing on the water ;D

thanks for the kind offer Glenn ill send you a pm i have cut the flex to length and installed the tube for it i still need to fasten it in ,i made a bracket to hold it near the engine end and a larger diam tube at the transome for it to slide into which will get glassed in.i will add a cpl  thrust washers before i connect it all up one where the tube exits and the ferrule is and one next to the strut and another wher the drive dog runs against the strut.Ian i dont think im doing too bad with this build 2 weeks in now unlike others i could mention who have been at it for a year now.i still need some servos for the boat yet as i fried a cpl in a sail boat that i was gonna use in this .by the way i know in the pic the tube is short of the ferrule but i havent fastened the tube in yet and it will meet perfectly so there lol.

No problem. Just the cable to be soldered into the brass tapered ferrule, keep it shy of the grub screws in the picture right?

Just busting your b***s  ;D
That's close enough, you're not going to get any whip in that small space. One comment, I would suggest a second piece of angle on the rudder so that you support it on both sides (as you have done the strut).

Coming along well Martin, good strong looking job.  I agree with Ian, put another angle on the rudder - it's only as strong as the weakest point, which is the bend at the transom.  Very neat :) Are you using 1/4 or 3/16 flexis?

Thanks guys i was intending to put another angle on the rudder got a bit sidetracked thanks for the heads up.Im using 1/4 flex cable and stub shaft mate ,Glenn has kindly offered to solder the ferrule onto the flex for me also.Soldering isnt one of my strong points so thats good!!,hopefully i can do the radio box and attatch the deck over the next cpl of days then i can prepare her for paint.I cant beleive how fast this things coming together im quite pleased with it so far. ;)

hi guys ive test fitted the deck on my boat and ive been playing arround with a screen have alook and see what you think.i also added a scoop for the deck to help with forced air to help cool the motor.the screen will need to be cut in half so i can get a bend or at least angle it to make a slight v shape but you get the idea what it will look like when shes done.

Where'd that scoop come from please Martin?

I need something to cover my spark plug and cap and stop scaring the two little drivers that have to sit next to it. An air scoop may be perfect.
Since fitting the new mounts the motor is higher now and the engine cover does not fit properly.

err you can keep yer bills mate thanks for the err offer  ::),you should have it today hopefully,hows the boat looking im undecided on the shape of the screen yet just playing with bits of scrap till i find a shape i like.ill post the scoop to you tomorrow when i get into town,i have one spare somewhere.it will need some trimming to make it fit but its arround 6" long and 1 1/2" high so theres a bit to play with.you could even use it as a mould to make a glass fibre one if you prefer but its pretty strong as it is.

Hi guys re did the screen and ive epoxied the deck on and coaated the hull and deck again hers a pic of her prior to epoxy coating the deck ,notice the new screen shape  i just trial fitted it for the pics so its not fixed on yet.more pics to come soon just waiting for things to dry before i can do any more.all hardware is mounted just need to shorten a few bolts before i tighten everything down and i need to cut another bracket for the other side of the rudder standoff.I also left the deck over hanging by 1/4" at the transome and tapering off to nothing about 1/3 from the stem then filled the over hang and using my finger made a concave to form a spray rail so any water rising up the sides is despersed away from the boat ,should help keep things dryer!!.

The great thing about painting your own boat is that the touch-up is always handy ;D
That's why mine are white (gelcoat filler is only available in one colour) ;D ;D

All together now - "Day-oh, de Day-oh, daylight come an' me wanna go home"  You're too young Mart ??? ??? ;D

hi guys managed to test her out this morning,the big lake was really rough 2 foot chop so i decided the small lake would be best to try her even that had 6" chop and it was really windy.she ran well got up on plane and ran straight and smooth despite the conditions.i need to get more throw on the rudder though as turns were wide and long.let me know what you guys think!!.

Hi Mart
VERY tasty.  Looks as though it will 'stonk' when you can open it up.  VERY impressive.
So - when's your first race then ??? ??? ;D

The video was a bit wierd - 1 minute 10 secs of the boat, then a black screen with the 'Generation' soundtrack for 10 minutes ???
Am I doing something wrong (it took ages to download).

Anyway I bet your well chuffed with that boat!

Congratulations
Danny
