Skipjack update…nearly done

I have been a busy bee as of late and the boat is pretty far along. I’ve painted the boat and have the hold down figured out. A Simple stainless steel screw through the bottom hull at the tip of the stern into the guide pin already provided worked like a charm.

Waiting on a Viper 15 ESC to show up from Harbor models to complete the WTC and I should be able to trim the boat in the test tank next week. Done a full week before the Regatta. Fastest boat I have ever put together.

I must have built 50 boats in my time here but this one took the cake one build time.

I’m thinking Fly Sub next. I have one of course. But first and other R-Class from OTW. Another Cient build.

More on this boat next week.

    Wow, Steve — I have seen your paint jobs on a lot of boats, but I believe this is my all-time favorite (so far!). Beautiful! And so FAST! Looking forward to the Fun Run on the 15th…

    Your SubRonLA shipmate,
