How To Build a Hornet Race Boat Plans

THIS sleek hydroplane is several notches above more standardized models in terms of speed. You'll find she also requires a bit more skill in building. But that never stopped a dyed in the wool craftsman, so here she is. The secret of Hornet's speed lies in 2 things the kind of bottom lines you give her and the motor angle. It's designed to give you top performance with speeds up to 38 mph. On the other hand, an after plane designed for high speed motors which will produce speeds well over 40 mph, where the hull does most of its riding on the spray under the after plane, if your motor and its angle are right. Some high speed thoroughbreds tend to be skittish, particularly on the turns. But Hornet won't be if you build her with careful attention to details, power her according to the type of after plane lines you select, and test out your motor angle thoroughly before you try to race her with a wide-open throttle.
