I would line up and fit the Kort's tubes first. Then fair them in to the hull, nice and smooth. Line up the motor tube with a backwards facing angle (say around 15 degrees !)  to ease fitting the motor at a later stage.

You have the propeller shafts to line up before fitting the drive motor, as these have to be accurately placed in to prevent vibrations.

Great fun eh !!!

 :-)) thanx ken
Thanx a lot

When I opened the box I was like good god I hope I know what ill be doing
lots and lots of parts hahahah

If I follow the instructions that came with the kit I shouldnt go wrong am I right?
I just want to make sure before I start my blog building the aziz
Its hard for me not to think those guys with blogs work for slipway or somehow affiliated with them somehow
plus they have experience in boat building

ill make my own blog
first timer building the aziz blog
Ill mentioning everyones names who have helped me with it also hahahah
websites and members  name

every move or parts will be posted before and after pictures :-))

Hi tug kenny

I have seen your video thanx
I like how you build it  that  looks great
but Isoldd my aziz to my friend
he offered money for the kit and I must say
his offer is something I couldnt refuse
Plus I figured I can always get another one
with extra money on my pocket
well I was wrong on that one
I put in an order for the aziz at Harbormodels
A couple hours later I recieved an email
saying out of stock for the aziz
I emailed slipway
I recieved an email stating I should contact
harbormodels lol
Harbormodels told me I have to wait for 6 weeks

I think ill look for the happyhunter instead
so can someone help me where to order happyhunter?

Thanx

Whoaw its been a while since I came here
And my aziz is not even half way yet {-)


Any way I have a question in regards of the bow thruster
Im thinking of modifying it
Reason?  Easy access to it incase of maintenance



dont mind my drawing im no Picasso  {-)

my question is will it affect the pressures of the water blowing out of it?

seathug........lowering the thruster motor/impellor below the suction/discharge as you have shown will not have any detrimental effect on the performance .....Derek

Hi Seathug
As Derek says it should not have too much of a detrementa effect, but just to make sure I would make the bends 'swept' bends as opposed to tight 90' elbows, just to be on the safe side.

Hi boat crew

I was going to use a 45
But I decided not to do it and leave it straight
So I can see propeller
If I was to bend it I wont be able to see the props inside the bow thruster
And it doesn't seem so real if its not straight

Hi
Probably a good idea, it will certainly take up less room than a tube with 45' bends in it.  Keep us updated on the progress.

I just made a mistake yesterday afternoon I continued working on my aziz
Using this type of glue




Do not use this glue >>:-(
if its get wet itll be brittle glue will come off
Darnit waste time I have to redo what I did again


This is the glue I originally used but they run out of it so I tried the other man do I regret it lol



this glue will be hard when its dry
Not like the one on top it feels like rubber when its dry
