A collection of plans for the classic wooden boats plans- the models vary in size but I prefer to work on models that are about 1m in length or larger so the majority of plans here are for the larger models. I have also included a section on RC Hardware with Wiring Diagrams for basic RC Boat and Ship layouts. Set paper size in the print options in the Adobe print menu - ensure paper size setting is correct.
The plans are large sheets 2A0 in sheet size - the large sheets that are best printed at a print shop such as Kinko's or similar high street printers. Each type of motor used with the Radio Control gear requires a specific design of Speed Controller. The Speed Controllers above have a water cooled Heat Sink to prevent the RC Speed Controller overheating.


You will notice that the Brushless Speed Controllers and Brushless Motors have three wires to supply the power to the motor. The Brushed Speed Controller and Motor use the conventional Plus and Minus leads to run the motor and the electronic speed controlled basically switches the power on and off at a high speed to control the power to the motor. The design of Brushless motors allows a Water Jacket type of heat sink to be used to remove the heat from the electric motor while under load. The water is fed from forward facing inlet on the hull which forces the water into the jacket and out through a drain - this is the most efficient way to cool you RC Boat motor.
The Battery Connection, Power Switch, Radio Receiver and Rudder Servo connection are also shown on the RC Ship Wiring Diagrams - Click on the thumbnails to download the full sized wiring diagrams.
The speed controller converts the DC battery power into a kind of 3 phase AC voltage to run the motor.


The design makes an interesting project for the amateur builder as the construction method is not difficult. The cost is kept low so that everyone can have a chance to build the models - some lesser quality plans are for sale on the web for 10 times the price.
The sides can be planked in either lapstrake (Plank Overlap) or carvel ( planks butted along their edges) systems. The Dory 14 is a row boat, but the plans show an alternative transom for an outboard up to 5 hp.
