Hi brian that looks a nice piece of kit ,nice low rpms and mounting feet to boot.  she is going to be a cracker,  Dont forget to build in the 19second delay going from ahead to astern  it seemed like an hour at times.  Geo

The next part of the nozzle was the fixed rudder on the nozzle; I used 5mm alloy plate for this part of the nozzle.

Hi Brian  she certainly has enough power, but do you think her head needs to come uo a fair amount?  not picking holes just a suggestion     Geo

 ^-^ George, you are right about her bow when I took the video I had an 8lb block of lead right in the bow. I removed the lead and she looked a lot better, will do final ballast runs when I get the superstructure made. At the moment I have a car battery sitting about amidships so I have plenty of room for getting her right, that is when I finally get her finished. :)
