45 KM/H is about 27 MPH, that is exactly what my Squirt runs with a 20 hp. Great looking Squirt!

I’ll play with the engine settings, the club’s mechanics recommended changing the angle of the engine and the speed increased from 40 to 45 mph. We will see...

Thank you colleagues for your appreciation. The Russians joke to themselves that only children are doing well for us, and everything that is done with our hands is worthless. Apparently this is not so)))). If desired, everything turns out well))). This is really a great experience - the first boat. There are little things left to finish - the lights, the horn and the windshield. Then I think to build an inboard.

Seeing the quality of that Squirt, you could build whatever boat you want.

Hi Aleksey,
great built... I love it!

May I ask you if this version is stretched or original dimensions?

Best Regards
Merlin
