Power 225 Electric Model Motor Boat

This is a simple semi-scale Balsa model based on the Selway Fisher Power 225 aluminium 22' power cruiser which can be seen on the Selway Fisher Design site

Simple sheet Balsa wood is used with the model construction based on the flat deck which is placed upside down and the bulkheads glued to it upside down. The Balsa centre girder is slotted and glued in place followed by the chines before the sheet balsa plank is glued to the framework.

A quick and simple model with startling performance. For simplicity she uses the Graupner 380 Multi-speed motor/shaft/propeller all in one power unit. The first boat used a low cost Futuba Attack 2 ER two channel radio control unit which was easily fitted and set up. The hull would be a good base for you to design your own superstructure on making her a Pilot Boat, Motor Gun Boat, Harbour Launch etc.
