    Here is a pic showing how much room is in this boat. Those are 6s 5000 packs with room to move them back and forth 2". That's a 4070 motor. Looks pretty small in there. I think i will be able to get all the equipment in this boat without having to use the cowl.

    Yes I believe so. The tub is 4" or 100mm wide. While a pair of 40 series TP motors will fit. I would go with a pair of 3060 size motors if going twins. Now you got me thinking dangit.

    Making some headway on the boat. It's got 3 coats of resin and is now ready for paint and then clear coat. Then I can start assembly.

    I finally got a little paint on the boat. Now I can actually start the electronics build. I hope to have it ready to go by next weekend.

    Iv'e been asked by a few where i mounted all my gear so here are some pics. The motor is a TP 4070 1570KV, 2215 prop from Brian B and speedmaster hardware. Gps hit 79.9 mph with this set up. I tried to get some video last time out but there were too many ducks and I was constantly getting yelled at to slow down and watch for them. So no good video yet but the boat flat out hauls and drives like a dream.

    You have to build on a flat board and clamp as much down as you can. The tub can only be warped if you dont clamp and then bond your top deck on.

    Not yet. I have gone out a couple of times but there were too many ducks on course to get any good runs in. I started racing a gas boat and when we go down to Las Angeles next month for a race. I will bring my rigger and run it on there course. I should get good video then.

    The ducks are bad at Sunset park and the spectators are pretty vicious too.

    Yea it's bad when you run 1 boat at a time. The ducks and geese don't care about boats running so it's hard to find an open window where you can run a fast boat and not worry about hitting them. Even the gas boats have to cut the course until they have done enough laps to move the ducks away.

    What if you fire of a blank gun? Like they use at the high school track meet. Do you think that would get them out of there?

    I think the duck lovers would call the police if we did that.
