There was a gentlemen in Novascotia Canada that built a 17-19 foot long R/C Type VII. All metal construction weighing in at a few tons. I'm unsure of the exact details, but if memory serves, those numbers are close.
Unfortunatly, he recently passed away, but the boat is now residing in the Maritime Museum.
So let me get this straight, Your Honda has 1.6 liters, whereas my bottle of Mountain Dew has 2?
