Speedboat “Zaphron”


There are no action photo's because these boats are difficult to catch with a camera!

In the foreground is the original Glynn Guest design, "Electron"

A "simple" speedboat. Of course you can easily buy a toy with similar appearance and perhaps even performance, but building your own is exciting. The greatest surprise was the power demand from the 7.2 Volt electric (“buggy”) motor - early versions of the speed control electronics failed and 20-Amp fuses softened..
