Lobster Boat


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi all,
I just finished my newest model, a Novi (Nova Scotia) lobster boat. A gentleman from New Brunswick sold me a fibre glas hull and I did scratch build the rest. The boat is equipped with working lights, a Mtroniks small diesel sound module, a 3S Lipo battery and a low rpm (4000) motor with a brass prop. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Kind Regards
Wilhelm

Re: Lobster Boat

Hi Dennis,
thanks for your kind words. The lobster traps are still missing, but I hope to make some over the winter.
