Century Sea Maid

ENGINE GAS

If R/C boating is your thing and you want to try scale then our subject is just what you have been waiting for. In addition, it is large enough to permit sailing in most any weather, with plenty of power.

 

By WALT WATKINS

 The day comes when most radio control aircraft modelers start thinking about model boating. This usually happens after a string of bad luck. My thinking turned into reality with this 54" scale model of the beautiful twenty‑one foot Century Sea Maid, one of the classic runabouts of all time.

 This is a large model that will let you run when conditions keep the hydros on dry land. It was built to take an O&R 1/4 or I hp engine, which will drive it well above scale speeds. I am using a 3/4 hp O&R modified to take a Kavan carburetor. The engine will idle at a much lower speed with the Kavan carb and the top end seems about the same. An air cooled engine will run without overheating if mounted as shown, in the cockpit. If you locate the engine, scale like, under the hatch it must be water cooled. I ran my engine air cooled for one year before converting it to water cooling. My radio equipment is an old Controlaire reed set, operating a surplus drone servo which handles both rudder and engine speed. If you use digital proportional equipment with this, or any, ignition engine, you must shield or suppress the ignition system.

 As this was my first attempt at boat building, I don't think it will be beyond the skill of anyone who builds their own model aircraft. There are several tools required for easy assembly. A table saw, jig saw, and a table disc sander will help along with the usual hand tools.

 The material list includes two sheets of 1/8" x 3' x 7' mahogany plywood. You will have to look around to find this wood; we found it at a cabinet shop where it was apparently used to resurface old furniture. Also needed is a plank or two of 1/2" or 3/4" solid mahogany to rip up into strips for framing. Other types of wood may be used here
