Been bust again more mods,bullwarks added to the bow between the pushers,funnels added and bath tested!!!
Not very happy with the bath test though seemed slow so plan B might have to come into play,plan b consists of std prop etc and a 600bb turbo yeah ha I feel the need for speed of should I go for plan z sorry cant tell you bhut it might involve a brushless mota

Hi Stav, sorry to hear you broke your boat, but i'm glad you had fun while it lasted!!!!!
May I suggest that you fit a 11cc nitro engine with a flex drive to a surface piercing prop, will that be powerful enough for you !!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D  LOL. (now there is an idea hummmmm)
