Electric Powered 2-Channel Ready-to-Race Speed Boat
The fully assembled and ready-to-race Caribbean Cruiser is a 30-inch
long, twin-motor, electric ocean racer loaded with full-race features from
stem to stern. Every design feature found on this model was put there for
one reason-to make it go faster!
Modified V hull design featuring multiple planning strakes for breaking
up water surface tension. Surface tension is the biggest drag-causing factor
on any race boat, and the Caribbean Cruiser's planning strakes are placed at
several points on the hull's bottom to defeat this speed-robbing phenomenon.
As a result-this boat literally flies over the water's surface.
Motivating this hull are twin 550 motors bolted up to a 1:1.7 drive-ratio
transmission, which in turn drives a single heavy-duty main shaft and large
surface-drive prop (no toy-like under-water drive found here). Surface-drive
setups are the pinnacle racing technology all the way. They are also the
mechanism responsible for creating those huge rooster tails so closely
associated with competition boat racing, and guaranteed to excite any
Mounted off the transom is a "strutter-design" rudder control. Again, a
feature only found on racing boats. Rounding out this competition package is
the copper plumbed, (not aluminum) "Aqua-Ramô" forced-water cooling system.
This system features water-jacketing around the commutator ends of the twin
motors keeping things cool and running at optimum output efficiency. Exiting
cooling water can be seen streaming out of the model's portside
freeboard-very cool. Caribbean Cruiser also comes with installed High
performance competition speed control and pistol-grip radio.
