Electric... Quite a lot of model boats run on batteries, the exceptions being sail, steam & IC.
However this section is about 'semi-scale' fun / race boats.
Club 500 boats are a major part of this group, and the club has a good few regular participants in the Club 500 races, usually held Sunday mornings. The concept is that all Club 500 boats are equal, and it's all down to the drivers!
Also part of the electric scene are the fast electric boats, usually mono hull, tunnel hull or hydro.
These boats usually run on Lipo batteries and brushless motors and easily reach speeds of 25mph.
