KAIRALI...she is my HOUSE BOAT....
« on: July 21, 2011, 06:06:23 AM »

Good morning Friends..
Making a house boat is, one of my sweetest dream, for years, but this was the time to realize it.the dream was re ignited by a scene, that i saw to the way to the Naval Academy. as i reached the Alappuzha- the land of lakes, it was a marvelous sight to see the house boats.but i noticed one great drawback, on all models, was nothing,but the wheel house and controls were kept in bowside of the boat, exposed,leaving the crew exposed to all we ather changes...its not fair. whenever we designs a machine,we must think about the comfortness of the crews.only then we can get a good service and safety. so i designed my house boat with some modern innovations,mainly in structure.

The wheel house is placed within a closed atmosphere, with all safety,and the total build structure is made to
exactly to the Vasthu science.so it reminds the real Kerala architecture.

more than 3 feet long, she is very light in weight...thanks to the thermocol....she is powered by a toy rc system,and a toy motor reworked for my specs.she is designed for long range operations, especially in open river, so i used a powerful battery, with deep brushing to the motor.she is also equiped with a MP3 player along with FM radio, all at the flick of a switch.i choose the turbo button of the RX2B to operate the MP3 player.i hope one day i will buy a full professional radio, along with servos, so i can
add many more functions to my crafts.  now she performs well.....

Fig 1 showing the hull structure..after seasoning, i applied the metal red oxide because, my intention is to release her in river  water..

What a great boat! It's really nice to see something different and appreciate the care you have taken in the build and it looks great on the water.
A nice start to my day, thanks for sharing your build.  :-))
