Yes , I know its  another skimmer. The reason I built this boat is because Ive had the motor sitting around doing nothing since I made it last year. As you can see its far too nice to hide in a submarine , never to see the light of day again,  hence the twelve gunned tin bathtub.

Ive put one of my Sutcliffes in the frame to give an idea of scale, whilst I stress that all my stuff is made with only basic hand tools, I must confess that I used my lathe to make parts for the motor, for this I bow my head in shame. Anyway, its a cracking boat, stable and fast however it steers like a cow! As soon as it stops raining here in the north of England Ill post some pictures of it afloat.
