Hi Michael


as soon as I get some spare time hoping to pay you a revisit, would also like to pay a visit to Stan at Kirklees as well, hopefully bringing the little-un.

Hi all


I am now looking at buying  the motors, Butts has advised MFA 540 geared 6:1 on 12 volts. Nothing wrong with that advice, thought I'd look on eBay see what there is, loads is the answer ranging from a few quid to 70-80 quid. Can't afford the higher end, on the other hand not going cheap as you usually get what you pay for, got 2 to get so around 25 each would be the range I am looking at, can any one recommend a motor for around this price. And I don't understand this 6:1 gearing, can some one please explain.


Thank you in advance.

Hi all
 not sorted out which motors to use yet and as car repairs have taken priority, thought I would crack on with the superstructure.

Hi.


I am following your thread. I am not far from you as I am in Dronfield. Having said that I am also learning about powered model boats. I joined Balne Moor and having limited time and no workshop space have purchased 2 tugs. The people at Balne Moor are all friendly and are always happy to offer advice and help with setting up. I missed the last event due to car problems am hoping to attend the next one but am supposed to be going on holiday the night before so need to do some juggling.. Dont get disheartened with your build, I have never seen anyone get criticised at a model club.

Hi all


not much progress been made recently, being working on another project, not boat related, will post a picture when finished. Good news is I am now in position to purchase a couple of motors,. I have found what I think is just what I am looking for (following advice from Butts), a 540 motor and 6:1 gearbox from Model Dockyard, priced at 20.32 each motor, firstly has anyone had any dealings with Model Dockyard and am I barking up the right tree, hoping to order them in the next couple of days.

Thanks Stavros/Butts


Advice taken and I have just ordered 2 motors, on duty over the weekend, so hopefully they will be here early next week, when I am off for a few days.

hi all


well as you know I've got the motors, never fitted motors, props, lined them up etc, where do I start, another problem has arisen that's going to slow me down, during an incident at work last night I've ruptured my right bicep, yes I am right handed, look on the bright side no more work for a few weeks.
