Modellers are starting to discover the fun and excitement of high speed, high powered racing boats. The biggest attraction of the sport is the combination of powerful, screaming engines throwing" rooster tails" of water spray and the competitive spirit generated by closed course racing. Other, more tangible reasons for the increasing popularity of power boating are the introduction of inexpensive, compact R/c systems, quality marine accessories, and the relative abundance of running sites. The airplane builders have also noted that an occasional "pilot error" results only in a wet engine and not a MonoKote bag of balsa! Maybe you've thought of building a boat lately, but you're not sure how to set one up and start it. Hopefully "Miss Misty" will offer enough hints and how-to-do-it references to get you over your hesitancy and into the water. She is a stable, three point hydroplane designed so that the experienced boater can rig a hull capable of class competition, but at the same time, a first time skipper can have a successful try at this facet of the hobby. The hull design is similar to the larger three and four point White Heat hydroplanes by Octura while power is supplied by any .15 to .23 airplane or marine R/c engine. By the way, converting an airplane engine to marine use is as easy as changing glow plugs.
Construction is similar to building an airplane fuselage, although a couple of airplane building habits must be changed for "Miss Misty."
