Ailerons

Un like most small airboats I plan on running "Dry" and on Ice a lot.
I need to be able to adjust the attitude of the boat differently then on water. 
Here is my plan.  "Ailerons".
I'm going to put 3 small ones before the rudders, to lift the front or back depending what I need.
Remember "work in progress "

looks good. 

Remember, if you don't need all three, you can easily take them off.  but putting them on later would be a pain.

You must have a lot of snow down to be playing sailor?

I have the structure in for my "Elevators " I found out that's what there called not Ailerons. Anyway , and rudders .
I still need to attach the plates and cut them to fit.
There will be 3 elevators 36" X6" and 2 rudders 50"X 10"
 Going to use ss steel hinges to attach them and use  a "Drag link" to hook them together, and move them up and down with a car window motor.
The rudders will be the same but turned with a Mechanical shafts and bell cranks.

Really looking good now. A lot of effort for a project of that complexity. Did you guys actually make any kind of design drawings ie engineering type like blueprints to scale? Before you started cutting and fitting things together. Anyone predetermine what stresses will be put out by the engine and prop against what is holding the parts together? So you will know that it won't "fly apart" under full power and loaded with gear & you guys. You will certainly have to "host" a showing when we all show up for MYGAWDS.

There looks like a "belt" hanging from the generator or alternator in one picture.

Plans ? NO
Drawings ?NO
Engineering ? NO
But if it is worth building it's worth OVER building.
Just a complex Image in our heads.
Yes there is a belt, It is the replacement Generator belt, I just have not got it on yet.

No engineering? No problem. 

If anything is overstressed you will find out pretty quick. I have built a lot of things that I had to modify a little bit after I started using it.

In my early days as an engineer, we designed to 3 significant figures (the limit of our slide rules.  Then doubled it.  when I retired in 2008, the rule was design to the minimum, then add 5%.

Life moves on.

In 1967, no ne shipped anything that wasn'r fully functional tested. Companies had what was called the TesRoom (shed/building).  Today, they ship it before the design is done.
