It will be a total refurbishment and the flexi prop can come out too. It is on my 'to do' list.  :D

Hiya Jan,
In response to what you said about cooling, to be honest I don't have  a clue how hot they run, but as you said the contact area is small so thats why I made a close fitting coil and covered the whole length of the 900 to increase the area of contact, it maybe over kill or it may not.
But at least now its done I wont have to mess around with it again.
But thanks for your remarks.
Steve.

Hi Steve,

If the boat doesn't get too heavy in the end, two 900 motors should not have any trouble moving a 116 cm (46") hull, heat should not be an issue unless you really overdo it on propsize and pitch.
I'd start with a smaller size than the X-55 in your OP to be on the safe side for the first runs.

I'll follow your build with interest.

Regards, Jan.

Yes thanks for your interest, I hope it helps new people to the hobby.
I have learnt such a lot from this forum and often follow different threads.
My last build was the Robbe Atlantis which was quite a challenge at times but very rewarding.
As its been to cold to be in the shed I have even making the front railing just to keep chugging alongs.

The kit provides a length of brass rod to make the railings, which isn't quite the same as chrome, I had some railings chrome plated on my Atlantis, cost me 70 quid, so as the Huntsman's are alot more straight forward I used 3mm
