Ted Johnson Shovel nose Hydro build


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Starting out my build for the shovel nose hydro. I've loved these boats ever since I was a tyke. If you look up cool in the dictionary you will see a picture of one.
This build is actually a practice build for my larger upcoming build. It's made completely from balsa wood with a 1/16 plywood skin. I'm learning that balsa doesn't like to be clamped too hard and the wood glue dried very quickly.
Here are some pictures.

Re: Ted Johnson Shovel nose Hydro build

you should give it a cote of thinned epoxy inside and out to prevent water from warping the wood . cheers

I got both plans off the net, no idea where I just surfed around until something showed up. This attached one I'm going to build much slower and more carefully.

Re: Ted Johnson Shovel nose Hydro build

I'm stuck now on the prop shaft, these things are harder to find than I thought. Anyone out there have any idea what size stuffing box and prop will work on a 28 inch shovel nose hydro? Where can I get them and what are the sizes? Part numbers and online store would be very helpful.

There are a lot of electric boats now. Prob get parts from some of the companies that make them. We have a traxxas spartan. It would probably work on a boat like what you’re making.

I notice that Dumas has complete running hardware kits listed on GH . Just have to find a similar boat to yours?

Re: Ted Johnson Shovel nose Hydro build

Thanks Guys I checked out Great Hobbies but didn't find exactly what I'm looking for. Because it's a scratch build it's a little tougher to find. Where would be a good place to get parts for a Traxxas Spartan? I should check that out.

Re: Ted Johnson Shovel nose Hydro build

I just punched in Traxxas Spartan on Great Hobbies search and got this with all parts for it and kits. It is a fairly powerfull setup on 6s but I guess you could try it on 4s. Not really sure on what size boat yours is. I see 28" but what was the recommended power system? How much weight can it handle?
