A bit of trial and error needed to make it go right but I think it's about there!

Whole boat cost 120!
Right... How much ? This has my lads name on it

Ok ok busted... No really it's for my lad.

He's only 8 and wants an RNLI RC. Tom's a lucky lad, he's had a few real life SIB's and a 12ft sorcerer speed boat with a Merc 25hp on foot throttle but I kept selling them all (as PeteM found out when he bought his Merc 25) so his thinking is I won't sell an RC from under him

Too be honest this boat has been pushed to the limit power wise and is getting rough round the edges. Barrel rolls at 25kts don't do it much good.

I'll see if I can get a production boat and modify it into an open rib. It will be much neater than this one and more reliable.

I have a nephew that is really taken with my RIB. He only gets to see it once a year so I was thinking about building him a RC model of it to play around with when he can't get in the real thing.

I been looking but so far haven't been able to find a suitable scale working outboard motor. I seem to remember that there were small electric outboard motors for boat toys when I was a kid, but so far I haven't been able to find one.
