A small cutter used by the Revenue Protection Squadron of the PDRV Navy to patrol areas such as the Mornington Archipelago.

Built a propeller today and assembled the hull.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

will we be getting a moonshine runner for it to chase?

You could make it into a show . The Crescent s of Mornington

Good news. If that's all the PDRV has for revenue cutters, with that heavy timber hull, and such a small propeller, it will never be able to catch my smugglers.  :wacko: Their  boats  will run circles around it.  ;D
I am ordering HUGE quantities of illicit substances for distribution in the Mornington Archipelago, whatever and wherever that is. ;D
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Presumably when the goverment sends them a Revenue Protection Coracle, they can take that as a passive-aggressive hint that they need to do a better job protecting it's revenue...

But no, that's just me playing with parts I had lying about on the bench.
Here's the engine in place and the helmsman roughly positioned.  I shall be increasing the freeboard and adding a cabin.

You forgot the triple 15" gun turret.  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Not room Kit.  May have to settle for a Chicago Piano (octuple pom pom).
