    Default These are kinda kewl...mini pickles

    Its a good thing I am broke ..or I would be forced to get one of these. I talked to the guy a bit ago ..said he would have marine cert.in a month or 2. I hope he joins on here...I told him about this place. Talked like he can set one up for a prop and a snowmobile motor. Then talked about a 170 lb 500 hp suburu(sp?) motor. If you guys want to see them its on ksl.com under boats with motors.

    That is kinda cool..is that about 1/2 scale? Take some big servos for RC

    A sled motor might tend to get complicated..crank runs the wrong direction, and i wouldn't think the drive ....subaru..maybe turbo..have to be jet..no room for v-drive..and a driver....maybe gut a jet ski? Wacker might be best....more room for driver...more engine options..probably cheaper.....
    Or setup crackerbox...subaru i the front with zoomies and straight shaft to a prop....i bet the ride would be smoother...

    Fwiw the guy said these were 10 or 10.5' and he was working on one that was 12ish. These where his proto types....the add said 600.00...I assume that was each. I may have to text him to egg him on to join over here Aparently his mold is now ready to rock and roll. I asked if it had a flat or round keel...and he said it was shaped to accept a jet ski type a jet. Not real sure what a 500 or even 300 hp subaru motor would do to one of those......

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Look at that transom angle on the white one!
    wonder about the stringers, it almost looks like its just glass on the one part that you can see into the hull, are the blue ones just glass like typical RC boats? doesnt look to be gelcoated.
    definitely cool!
    Kinda remind me of the old jet ski's FazeII.

    The Polaris 800 twin in my sled makes 165 horse with twin pipes and has a CCW rotation at PTO end of crank. There are guys making close to 300 HP with turboed watercraft based triples. Mated to a Berk JE pump would be a blast.
