Hi .

Although I have never done anything like this before, at the request of a friend, I made this electric kid boat.
The size is 330cm
The frame structure is made of waterproof plywood, CNC worked ribs.
The outer cover is okoume wood.
Surface treatment with marine varnish (flexible, long-lasting, UV, salt and mildew resistant)
It has nearly 150 work hours.

-- Nothing is impossible !

That’s a step above power wheels for sure, amazing job. I would have loved that as a kid (and even now).

Are you Kidding me that thing is insane!!! A hundred and fifty hours is pretty fast working, it would take me that long to build the frame and twice that long to finish…

Brilliant job Amilo.

They’ll need a bigger bath tub!

PS. I tried to build a boat. Got exactly this far,

and it sank. Must have been the heavy wheels or not enough water in the boat.

This blows me away! Just beautiful!!!
Did you design it yourself or did you use plans? Can you tell us more about the propulsion system?
