    Execellent idea. Great simple execution.

    Dennis, Thanks for your reply, Yes am running convential strut with skeg at moment. I was just wondering if it would effect the boat or not. Phil

    I realise that it will act as another ride surface. Has anyone run a flat bottomed strut on a R42? What handling changes did it make?

    octura Y572/3

    Any one run one ? If so on what? Just curious.

  6. Found the one I was thinking of . Flying Models issue 3/91. Note offset drive line to allow for outboard (7.5cc) laying on its side. Ran 3 chanel rudder, Throttle and Horizontal Stabiliser.
  7. The one I remember had an outboard motor on its side and used the outboard PTO to drive cable. Narrow chord wing between the sponsons. Is this the one you're thinking of? Have the article some where.

    Looking for suggestions

    Mike, Rick answered it in #2. Take a piece of hose to your local hose supply store and match the hose to the correct tail and get an Oeticker(spelling) Twin ear clamp.

    scuffing or waxing which better faster

    Which way do you sand? Bow to transom or keel to chine?

    Noise suppression

    Try a Baffle between the carb and the open top. Sound doesn't like to travel around corners.
