Boston Typhoon
« on: January 06, 2014, 07:04:57 pm »

Just a quick question,
Will shortly be starting to build this boat , as its quite a large boat would anyone have any suggestions as to whether it would be advisable to fit a bow thruster ,not having built as long as this I have no idea how it will respond.
Thanks,
Gerard

My Boston Typhoon runs and turns brilliantly on a 900 main motor.  Almost surfing.   %)

Regarding a bow thruster I wouldn't do one as it's a very long craft and the thrust would not be of benefit.

Hope this helps

My Boston Typhoon turns well with just the rudder and a blast of the motor, just a Graupner 700 in mine but it pushes her along nicely.

Thanks Cam,
Your boat looks just the part, am getting a 900 motor for her, hope mine looks as good on the water as yours does.
