I put the digital tachometer on it with 12v supply from my power supply built at Tech school way back in the seventies it gave 57.75 rpm at these rev's the beam was rather slow although it runs very smoothly.

My camera takes stills & video but I can't workout the video part  confused confused confused confused

If you have a smart phone with the YouTube app installed making videos is a lot easier. Just simply log into your YouTube account/google account and you’ll see a video button ( looks like a camera) you can push that and it will take the feed from your smart phone and just record. Once done just finish off and follow the instructions. You can then use the share links for your video once it uploads to the forum either using the forums YouTube link ( creates a video in the blog) or just upload a direct link to YouTube...

I hope that makes sense if you get stuck message me.

I should note that YouTube can also take video from your laptops camera too ( same process as your smart phone would use)you’ll just have to use the edit tool to remove yourself from the frames etc...

New pulley turned a little under double the diameter of the original, still have to drill & tap for the grub screw the pic also shows the spring I'll somehow attach to apply light pressure the drive belt.

Ill point to any kid over 8 to help you at this point for video, I could write a long set of instructions but have no idea if your able to follow them for video.

Honestly it’s not much dissimilar to uploading photos however you would need to upload to video host such as YouTube and just post the link on the forum...

I wouldnt worry to much tho bud photos do the job nicely.

lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! Aron.  I found the video on off by accident now to workout the youtube upload.

The new pulley increased the wheel revs to 79 rpm so I removed the main pulley chucked it in lathe and reduced the diameter by about 5mm then cut the new pulley groove put it back together and the batteries ion the tacho were flat, tomorrow's another day.

That will be spent vacuuming the dust from machining the body filler main pulley it's everywhere.
If it's to fast there's room to make the new pinion smaller in diameter.

Good job bud, it’s always those pesky rpms on paddlers that drive me batty, and have always led to me trying to remember you need low rpm and high torque rather than the high rpms in used to dealing with.

One day I’ll get around to finishing my paddle boat design plans ( honestly they are further along than last posted) I just need some time to prototype and also need Sit down and do some real math on rpm and gear ratios.

A piece of scrap 8mm plywood solved the belt tension hassle.

 

The pulley mod's produced 123 rpm

Nuts fitted my guess of keel to motor clearance was a close call if the belt stretches even a little the motor tray will hit the keel.



with top 2 decks in place she looks good.





A few more picks.

There's not much room inside for the radio and batteries I've ordered 10 x 6ooo mAH sub C batteries on ebay I'll build 2 packs of 5 cells and velcro them to hull walls then worry about the Rx & Rx battery then think on the speed controller placement.

Very smart Damien. I hope you do manage to get her on the water at least once. 

If you are looking for a new ESC try one of these 
https://www.banggood.com/20A-Double-Sides-Brush-ESC-For-RC-CarBoat-p-926460.html?rmmds=search&cur_warehouse=CN - they are very good, also have a BEC which wil save you a battery Very Happy

I have been using 10 amp similar versions for some time now, not that I would expect them to last very long if you did ask it to carry 10 amps, but for 1 - 2 amps they are great.

Thanks Barrie I have a few Esc's on hand.
I do plan to start sailing again it just struck me a few days ago besides the weeds I'm worried about falling in the during launch and retrieve process I can't even pic up the dogs waste without leaning against something.

I bought one of these trolleys on ebay and will modify it lo launch models.

and the drive end.

Took a dremel with a 50mm saw blade followed by 10mm sanding wheel and removed excess deck and bulkhead material inside work area to make room for R/c gear and batteries.

Excellent Damien I always like movement. 
Josie Olsen with the paddles turning and the engine running, it will look very impressive both on the water or a show table.

I got the test tank out and found it hadn't weathered the extremes of weather well and the fibreglass had delaminated all around the top edges, I finished repairs the" I thought " filled it with water and it still leaks like a sieve where I added extra width for paddle boxes more work needed, however I got 4 pics of Josie, with the motor mounted port side of centre she leans considerably to port as the pics show.
This will be addressed by battery, Rx & speed controller placement.

Started on the rudder fittings 4 - 6mm dia pulleys  and the tiller arm. The shape of the stern cabin limits choices for activating the tiller at present the servo horn and tiller arm will be aligned with the the bow, I'll dig out a Tx, Rx and battery To determine if the servo horn needs to be reversed for correct Tx stick to rudder movement so I can select placement for the pulleys an their small towers.

Cleaned and vacuumed the shed yesterday when finished the shed gremlins had made off with the tiller arm the four pulleys were still there though.
Made another arm today after searching thru the vac bag and the rubbish bin without finding the missing arm.

Drilled and tapped the tiller arm 3mm for the grub screw, started cutting scrap 10mm x 7mm pine for the pulley mounts and forgot how big my butt is and knocked the motor beam assembly to the concrete floor smashing the motor mount pivot assembly hinge points.

Repairs went well.





Servo to tiller pulleys and cord added and mounted a quick test showed it works well.
With a small spring on either side of the fitting on the servo arm maintaining tension on the braided cord the same cord used on funnel  and mast stays.

Couldn't get anymore done as we had a major catastrophe one ear on Jo's computer headphones died been expecting it as mine died a fortnight ago not a bad run from Sennheiser headphones salvaged 35 years ago from the waste bin at 3ccc then a local community radio where I was a technician and rewired not surprised really the stereo cord I rewired with was rather brittle after after so long. 
I had an emergency run to Kmart lol! lol!

At first look I figured a simple connecting rod to the tiller would have worked but it clicked your space was limited on ability to turn using that method without fouling the hull, basically you build a quadrent assembly and your method is somthing I’ve yet to see in a model!

Still being schooled by the old boys! cheers
