Supermarket meat i

hovertruck Hovertrain

If hover craft technology was added the the trucking industry carrying the load then more capacity per load could be carried.Steering and propulsion and breaking would be done with the wheels. Emergency breaking could be affected by dropping the whole thing on the ground.
The same could be also done with rail.

new boat

My new boat

The seats slide on the black runners to adjust the weight to get the right trim.  Power is either 30lb thrust electric outboard or 3.3hp outboard. It rows easily as well. This is a stable platform and will be used for photography on the local river, The Shoalhaven. It is 12 feet long.There is four fishing rod holders. Fully loaded it draws 300mm. There is room to sleep between the black bars when the seats are removed. Plastic boxes are tied to the black bars to hold all the gear for the trip and these rest in the top yellow hulls.

The arc

It has been some time since I have written about the mini tugboat. I lost interest in the boat when it didn't work out. I have done much thought and am changing the under water shape to give more stability. The work was started again today and will take about a week. I will publish photos when I can. Thanks for staying around ,cheers.

One good thing about Crawdad operationally is that it can be made to almost any length, keeping the bottom at 4' in order to conserve plywood. It can be a quick and cheap affair, with character.
