During the 1950’s and early 1960’s there was a surge in amateur boat builders who were building their own boats for recreation and family enjoyment on local lakes and rivers. Boating magazines offered “how-to” assistance and even plans that could be bought. These boats often used plywood construction which provided sheet planking and a no-caulk hull form. Fiberglass cloth and polyester resin made for water tight hulls with minimal care. The Swish Blade is one example of this kind of boat.The Legend Model Kit “Swish Blade”is a true 1/6th scale representation of a 16 foot outboard ski boat type hull. The kit is completely laser cut, using lite-plywood framework, bass wood stringers, birch plywood hull, and mahogany veneer deck sheeting. Just as with the original home built full scale Ski Boat, the model offers ease of building in its design with quality materials provided in the kit. It will produce an extremely fast and stable hull, making it suitable for both leisure and competition use.The powered model will run on 14.4 volts, using either two 7.2 volt NI-MH batteries or two 2-cell LI-PO batteries running in series hookup.Length: 32 in.
