Default It floats right

It floats right but have to re-think the power. The paddles are too fast and the run time too short. Needs a lighter rubber band and a smaller spool to wind on.
Or a motor with some kind of belt drive

Thanks Jim. It's scratch built. One of those think, cut and try to fit each piece then re do it and glue it. Kinda poetic ain't I
Off to the saw dust mine Gonna have to electric motor it. The bands aren't going to cut it.

Too funny! Don't know much of a boat engine or so, guess it will be fun to do that too.... The colors are a good choise, I like it. Sooooo, make one for your own when you come over to play on the pond, ok?

You might be able to use a spring for power. Kind of like a clock spring. Just a thought.
But I know you have the motors you want to try out. Good luck. What is next servos and a remote control? LOL

Back in dry dock for new power. Going with 2 small elec motors and twin belt drives. Going to build it as a separate unit that will install and uninstall easily for maintenance. The batteries ( fuel tanks) will half to go in the forward cabin for balance so now half the crew will be b@tch*&^. The way it goes I guess.

When an engineer screws up it's called a "Revision".

Thought about it. I've got a ton of RC stuff hangin' around. Built a couple of tugs a long time ago that were steam powered. One had a 1cyl oscillator and the other had a 3 cyl reciprocating piston engine. Both were plank on frame hulled.
