    Miss Sharon is a electric powered, 43 inch wooden boat. Built from scatch out of discarded materials and electric motor out of a childs toy car. The motor is 12 volts, but has no problem taking 20 volts. The boat hull is made out of 1/32 in. oak venere,and 1/4 in. inch ribbing. It took one week to build the hull, and top is covered with cloth and sealed with polyeurthine. Trax. drive gear was found at local hobby shop. Miss Sharon runs from 40 to 50 mph on the striaght and takes turns smooth and easy. The boat is 10 1/2 inches wide and 43 inches long. Miss Sharon has been run in the Frio & Medina Rivers in Texas and fights the current like a champ. I just love to watch it bounce up through the wake, it is a great boat I have some pictures to share.
