 Finally, today was the maiden voyage of my IMARA. The two motors, in conjunction with the mixer, doing an excellent job with adequate speed and tight turns. Controlling the throttle and the rudder at the same time even allows me to turn the boat on a dime. I am pretty happy with todays run.
I took a few pictures and I hope you enjoy them.

Hi Wilhelm


Wow, this is absolutely awesome, seh's such a beauty. Congratulations on such a stunning model!
Did she draw any water during her voyage? I'm always a bit worried seeing them sitting so low in the water.

Thanks guys

Hi Dom, no water inside, not a single drop. I was worried about the play between the shaft and the tube bearings, but stuffing the tubes with soft white lithium grease worked great.


Kind Regards

I would definitely have the last picture on my wall if she was mine  :-))
Not just realistic but very artistic composition  :-))

Lovely pictures of a fine built model! I like the stern shot, you can sense the power from that grip in the water by sitting so low.
Well done and thanks for sharing!
