Its interesting that these could be made 3.5hp quite easilly, And with some Exhaust mods who knows!

How fast does it go and is it everything you expected?

I would have thought it revs its tits off and needs a much bigger prop?

How much are they going for, I take it you sussed out how to make them a VERY short shaft, Cutting and welding?

You could also have a servo operated gearshift..Cool

Micro Speedboat

I have been very fortunate that Steve has just given me to micro boats We have 3.3hp mercury on them and hope to have them in the water this year Ron will be so proud of as getting them back on the water once again As I know he used to love them And he spent many hours developing them I am just in talks with Steve at the moment on moulding some new ones if anybody is interested Get in touch with Steve Masterman or Keith Hooper and we may be able to help You guys out there get one . Once again a big thank you to Steve Masterman forgiving me to which I'm now restoring
