HOMEMADE MINI SPEED BOAT!! Part 1: Build and Tes
Check out the MINI BOAT I designed and built this summer 2010. This video
shows fabrication thru the initial test run. Test run is short and low
speed because it's cold and I dont have a safety boat
Glen-L Pee Wee homemade runabout boat
This is the Glen-L designed Pee Wee that my daughter and I built in the
spring of '09. With my 8 year old daughter the boat planes out quickly and
rides great. She really has alot of fun and is becoming very confident and
a highly skilled skipper. Yes, she passed the boaters safety course. I have
less than $600. in wood, bronze fasteners and west system epoxy in building
this. It took us about 3 months working in the evenings. I tried a 5 1/2 hp
engine at first but the boat had troulble getting on plane. I then found
this 1955 Johnson 10 hp at a garage sale for $20. With the 10hp it will
even haul me and my 8 year old around at 20 mph, we have a combined weight
of 225 lbs. With just my daughter in it the Airguide speedometer reads 25
mph. This is much more fun and safer than a jet ski or pwc.
Home made chain-drive outboard
I made this out of a used 5-horse Briggs motor, a go-kart clutch, a golf
cart wheel hub, and some scrap metal. Basically I needed an outboard for my
little aluminum boat, so I used what I could find around the barn. The
only thing I had to buy was the used propeller ($7 at a garage sale).
According to GPS it pushed my 14 ft. boat and two passengers 6.4 MPH going
upstream in the Black River (near Lake Erie).
World's Biggest Aerial R/C Assault - Traxxas Invades Glamis
What happens when you take three of the fastest Traxxas trucks to the the
world famous Glamis dunes? Prepare for a high-speed, sand-shredding, aerial
assault featuring the Traxxas Rustler VXL, Robby Gordon Dakar Edition
Slash, and 65+mph E-Revo Brushless Edition.
E-Revo puts on a freestyle show with every back-flip variation imaginable;
single, double, and massive triple back-flips! Not to mention the seemingly
never ending air time that Rustler VXL and E-Revo have as they soar through
the desert air. The Robby Gordon Dakar Edition Slash looks just like the
full-size truck that competes in the Dakar Rally as it blasts across the
dunes at 60+mph.
Powered by high-capacity Traxxas Power Cell 11.1-volt LiPo batteries, the
power robbing sand is no match for 11.1-volts (22.2-volts in E-Revo) of
high-voltage horsepower. Glamis is the
ultimate radio control playground and Traxxas is The Fastest Name in Radio

Homemade Pontoon Boat in Namsos
The ship is made from steel, glass and wood. A 4 HP engine gives it the
spanking cruise speed of 6 knots. (Hence no crash helmets).
The ship did her maiden voyage in the year 2000.
Here's a small compilation from a pleasure trip on the Namsenfjord (Norway)
some time towards the end of july, 2008. The vessel, a.k.a. the "UFO," is
manned by the constructor J. E. Dammerud and his son Martin.
