When did they rip the wings off the space shuttle, butcher in all those windows, then set it afloat?

Hi,

Interesting!

A truly unique solution to the rudder where the propeller, if it were still folding, would not brake the flow, but in a tight turn it would certainly be an effective solution. Bring a ruder motor maybe electronic?

Wow, Murray... I was just bout ta hit da sack when saw your post re rudder mounted thruster!

Went in the link to see for myself. Still thinking several things about that unusual item.

Would like to captain the boat for a while at slow speeds [maybe in close quarters] to see how she handles. Seems it might get unruly when using it for direction-push with prop wash. Also, electric line comes through a hollow rudder post?? - It must. Wonder how much drag/interference it creates at cruise speed. Seems it would just add to direction of prop wash in accordance with direction rudder is turned. Guess you could put prop in reverse and use the rudder and thrust prop to assist for rear of boat quicker turns. Also, with main prop in neutral; using the thruster with rudder turned... ???

This one's gonna drive me bonkers!!

Anyway; really nice looking Gardner boat design! Thanks for posting.

Hydraulic... You're probably correct. Thinking back on the photo I was wondering if the relatively demure bulge in rudder was for just a geared shaft?? Guess that with shaft driven-gear, in electric or hydraulic power mode, would add even more opportunity for confusing the "how to's" on using the thruster in a big rudder... with easy capability of having the thrust prop reverse direction. I'd be very confused, at least at first, using that thruster.

Certainly an interesting boat. Thanks for posting.

I wonder if the 2010 year is a typo or deliberate attempt to mislead (the price higher)?

I am jealous of the work bench and a place for the vice.

Well then, if it is still available, I suspect he would be real proud to sell it to you.
