360 degree thrust is what you get

IE; where ever it points is where the thrust is directed

Right me got totally bored with Xmas so went to the shed and just got on with it
The superstructure was first finished and then painted white with plasticoat,Brass hand rails have now been fitted and are awaiting painting black so is the mast and door handles etc,tomorrows job!.The pushing attachments have been made and are ready for painting,the hull will be rubbed down tomorrow as well.A mast was made with brass tubing and a radar(non working) was attached to it.Port and stbd and mast lights were wired up with LED'S and will work form a separate batt,just on a switch.

Nice one Stavros - your railings do look exceptionally neat. I am very tempted to do one myself but so much to do and interesting presents to fit on the motorbkike....

I've got that same drive unit in an older Dozer boat hull - I found I had to change the prop and also run it on 12V rather than 6v - just didn't have the power I thought it should have. Older units might have actually come with two different props. I look forward to your pond tests. It looks good.
