Beautiful clack-clack-clack-clack sound of her engines Dom..... :-)) .......again superd low speed speed control that will only be further enhanced with the water loading on the propellers


The audible sound will also be reduced in water as the engine sound instead of rolling around the hull, will be partially adsorbed from hull into the water


Looking forward to watching your Imara on the water

Thanks guys!  :embarrassed:
Yes, Derek, you're right that in the water the engines do run a lot smoother. I had her running in the tub for a couple of minutes and it made a huge difference.

I inherited an old coaster wagon from a friend of mine who used to cart his kids around with it  :-)
That should get the transportation problem sorted. Slowly transforming it into a moving cradle for the steaming lady.The drawbar was a bit messed up so I'm in the process of prototyping a new connector that can easily be detached by way of simply plugging a splint. Makes loading it into the car much easier than fumbling with a screw and a wing nut.The green part is only a conceptual print. Once I'm satisfied it will be printed with a sturdy carbon fibre filament.

Almost done. I will add a small "doorstop" for the bow keel to prevent it from sitting too far to the drawbar.I'm almost a bit prowd of my self designed and printed quick releasing drawbar attachment  :D Now, if only the weather was a bit better, I could haul her to that test pool at our friend's for her maiden test voyage  %)
