I agree.  Quite beautiful.  Should be easy to re make my drive system as this is obviously the way to go. Mind you,  moving the tubes down into line could be fun.  %)

75 mm props at 4 blades as well. I am impressed. You've re-rejuvenated an old man.  :-)) :-))

Thank you for showing us.

Thanks Both for the kind words....

Kenny, how Ive removed epoxied shafts before was to cut the tube almost flush with the hull on the outside and then heat up the remaining tube with a solering iron shoved up the tube. Then with a big pair of pliers on the inside, start by gently twisting, eventually the heat will soften the epoxy and out the shaft pops....

The shafts I used were the MMM 10" x  5mm ones, with the matching heavy duty A frames in the positions marked on the hull...
Brive belts were from http://www.motionco.co.uk/timing-pulleys-timing-pulleys-aluminium-c-25_35_50.html but were modified to remove the mounting hub.

Kenny the belts are motionco P/N B3M065.

They also have a very nice belt length calculator if you wish to play with the ratio's...
