    Wow very nice !! It looks like you have quite a bit of time in each one...What type of motors are you running ??? I've never run an RC boat yet but I have a F/A-18 ducted fan jet that uses a brushless motor...It has plenty of power for the size...I bet my motor would do very well with this type of application..

    I spend a lot of time on these as I tried to make it as actual scale boats and not just R/c boats, I used brushed motors from disused cars.I am sure that ducted fan jet would work on the rite sized boat,we found that too much trust make the boats hard to handle, here is some pictures of the construction to give an idea why I spend more time on each of these than on my 10' x 5' boat. The scale 1:5 for 10' x 5' or 1:6 for 12' x 6', works out the same (2' x 1' bottom)Name:  10-6 scale.jpg
