Super Spartan by Rob Sotirin

Nov 2, 2007

Here are a few construction and operating pictures of our new boat, which we named "Retro Rocket". It's the Glen-L "Super Spartan", a fun project without much required in the way of materials, because it's designed to be very light weight. I found a mid-60's Merc200 for power and that's plenty of push to rocket the boat around with two kids on board. When I took the pictures in the water I had not converted the motor to remote throttle, so my son is actually working the throttle while his buddy steers. Even with two little boys on board, the boat is very fast and stable.
