      Great boat I've got a couple modified weed whacker engines that would make it scoot.

            Very clean design.

            Power? Radio gear?

              This was done on a dare. It will be powered by children power (the motors and electronics are too expensive for me). I figure I will just see how long it takes the children to sink it..... Just to be mean I filled it with expanable foam so they can damage it but I dont see it sinking....

              StephenD you are only the second person to notice the pepsi connection. Even I didnt see it.

                    Hawaiilad the interior skelton is made from 1/4" baltic birch and the exterior skin from 1/8" baltic birch. The progress pictures are under a title of "Scroll saw boat" under works in progress. It shows the interior and unpainted.

                      Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.
