Silverhook - The record holder
The Lucas Oil was constructed by Ocke Mannerfelt. At first glance, the design looks very eccentric, but its meaning have been proved by Nigel Hook and Michael Silverberg in several races. Most recently, Nigel Hook and Jay Johnson used the Silverhook 48GP to cover the distance from Key West to Cuba in an hour and 18 minutes, setting a new Guieness record. With the kind support of Janet Wilson we got the permission and documents to offer our scale model.
Just like the original, our model is built with two scale drives (optional for 4.75mm (3/16") or 6.35mm (1/4") flex shaft) and a scale rudder. For example, the SSS 4082 (2x6S) or the SSS 5694 (2x8-10S) offer suitable motorization. Depending on the selected setup, speeds over 150Km / h are possible.
Delivery contains hull and decal set.
Good to know!
The center of gravity of Lucas Oil is 25-30% seen from the transom. It should be noted that the Lucas Oil certainly prefers more weight to keep a stable position even in curves.
The little difference
This hull is available in different versions. In general, all of our hulls are manufactured using the sandwich "wet in wet" process (1 layer of 100er GFK + 1 layer of 160er GFK + optionally 1 layer of C-AFK or CFK + 1 layer of 100er GFK). In this way, the upper and lower part connect optimally and, unlike in vacuum process, there is no weak point on the seam edge of the boat. Which version suits you best depends on what plans you have with your power boat. GFK hulls are stable and suitable for normal speed up to 130Km/h. For higher speeds, we recommend using the C-AFK (very stable, firm, heavier than GFK) or CFK (very stable, flexible and lighter than C-AFK) version.
