I hadn't photographed these until yesterday.. but have had them for quite a while.

The 1st is a "Shinsei" Voyager. A 18"L. cabin cruiser powered by "twin" electric motors; was given to me by a friend back in the early 1990's.. but had no radio transmitter with it.

Below is a web image showing OEM equipment.

Below image is mine.

FYI.. the "CF" is the USCG designation for a California registration.

Powered by twin 380 class (?) motors; it required X4 "C-cell" batteries (6VDC) for the motors and one 9V. transistor battery for the receiver.. (no BEC circuitry back then) I hogged-out the c-cell bay to fit a 7.2V sub-C NICD pack.. and installed a Futaba BEC equipped Rx/ESC combo which worked out nicely.

I rewired the motors in parallel. Originally; they were set-up for differential-thrust type steering control (no rudder needed).

The rudder shown below is a Graupner part; which was now required for conventional steering via a servo.

I reinforced the transom with a small block of plywood to mount it.

This was/is a relaxing little boat to sail. Not fast at all; it cruises at probably less than scale speed at full-power due to the gear-reductions in the drives.

Here's a boat that came from the now defunct (since 2018) "Benny's" discount-retail stores. I saw it alone price reduced, on an endcap near the check-out registers in the N. Attleboro, MA store one day.. and couldn't resist.

There is a lot of water where roddie lives Eric. Beautiful State and one of my favorite duty stations at Newport. I know that mud thing, I have been playing in it for the last week. Four days of rain can make a mess when your working with a tractor in the woods.

I'm enjoying your thread roddie, and ditto on the Voyager.
