If R/C boating is your thing and you want to try scale then our subject is just what you have been waiting for. In addition, it is large enough to permit sailing in most any weather, with plenty of power.
By WALT WATKINS
This is a large model that will let you run when conditions keep the hydros on dry land. It was built to take an O&R 1/4 or 1 hp engine, which will drive it well above scale speeds As this was my first attempt at boat building, I don't think it will be beyond the skill of anyone who builds their own model aircraft. There are several tools required for easy assembly. A table saw, jig saw, and a table disc sander will help along with the usual hand tools.
The material list includes two sheets of 1/8" x 3' x 7' mahogany plywood. You will have to look around to find this wood; Also needed is a plank or two of 1/2" or 3/4" solid mahogany to rip up into strips for framing. Other types of wood may be used here
Thank you for looking Rose
