50″ Mono – Genuine Everingham

Everingham

50″ Everingham Mono

We picked up two new bare hulls this past weekend. They are 50″ mono’s built by Garry Everingham out of Singleton NSW, Australia.
For a very reasonable $400 AUD, these hulls represent good value for money.

The hulls appear to be built very well using Gary’s own design and manufacturing process. The end result is one beautiful scale boat!

Be sure to check  back over the following weeks for a complete build log on the two hulls and of course some videos!

Swordfish 300a Pro+

Over the past couple of years we have had the pleasure of trying more than a couple dozen different Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC) for electric RC boats. We have fried many, loved a few and not even bothered installing a few more.

For our latest builds we needed something top of the line with plenty of grunt to power our big heavy 45” Everingham hulls.   Searching for an economical yet reliable unit, the first name that came to mind was Swordfish!

45″ Thurgarcraft (Electric 12S)

Everingham 45" Hull

Everingham 45″ Hull

Over the last few weeks we have been busy assembling two new hulls here at RC Boat Builder! Not just any old hulls may I add, but scaled down versions of the Australian designed Everingham or Evo as some will call them here.

These hulls at 45″ are very common in the gas powered groups, tried and tested over many years. I’m not claiming we are the first to set them up electric but there certainly isn’t too many floating around!

Over the past weekend we went out for a run at our local pond, ‘Norwest Lake’ situated in the heart of North / West Sydney, a stones throw from the Sydney Ice Arena or more famous Hillsong Church headquarters.

To our surprise on Sunday we came across a lovely old bloke who has been hard at work over past few months building up his electronic tug boat. However this is no ordinary setup, old mate has spent months leveraging his electronics knowledge to build a complete control deck for his setup!

R2 Hobbies Silver Fox

Summer is here in Australia, we are pretty lucky to have daylight from 6.30am until 9:00pm thanks to daylight savings!  This leaves us with plenty of time to hit the pond after work and on the weekends.

We have not posted an update in a little why so we thought we would upload some photos of our latest build.  We have not completed a full build log as this is the fourth catamaran we have assembled from the R2 Hobbies 36″ Silver Fox  hull.
