UTILITY BOAT "JOKER"
« on: May 30, 2012, 04:37:44 AM »



Hey out there,

Thought I' post a few pic's of my just finished utility boat. The hull is fiberglass, cut down all around, except for the bow. The deck, cabin, cabin roof, and stern access hatch are "Lexan" polycarbonate. The windows, and door are wood doll house pieces. All of the fittings are from the parts box, with the radar being a cap from a perscription bottle. Scale is 1/12th, length is 20", beam is 10". Power is a large Johnson motor with a 12v, 4.5 amp gel sell. The kort nozzle is fixed, with a 40mm Robbe prop.

Dave,

I purchased the hull (grp) from someone in a local club. I believe he knocked off several hull. It started out as a flush deck log boom boat. I cut the hull down, leaving just the bow section raised. Freeboard is a little low  {:-{, but doesn't take ant water in.

Ask him to knock out the same but with an X-Bow like Ulstein's - they would be a fun wow - put my name down for one :-))
