  • Anyone missing their Ohio?

    I was just emailed from a gentleman out of Nashville that found this poor thing on the side of the road. Looks like it's been run over, unfortunately. She's a big Ohio, done up as the USS Tennessee from what I can tell. Looks to be scratchbuilt, perhaps from PVC pipe?


    Anyone missing a big boat in that area?








    A real shame to see it in this condition...

      LOL. and .... OUCH! No gizmo's inside. Maybe a part of a float?

      Reminds me of the time Johann Saure launched three of his boats -- that were strapped to the top of his car -- at an intersection as the guy hehind rear-ended him. The horror .. THE HORROR!

            Noticed several things
            1.) what's that blue hose/ cable going into stern, power cable?
            2.) looking at the remaining hull section the missing missile deck looks like it's meant to be removable-access hatch?
            3.) clear bulkheads
            4.) looks like movable rudder

            my guess it's a surface running model.
            Make it simple, make strong, make it work!

              Look how thik the hull is , 1/4 inch must be a pvc pipe.
              What would the turning radius be 25 feetor better?

                You would not steal a wallet so don't steal people's livelihood.
                Think of that before your buy "cheap" pirated goods or download others work protected by copyright. Theft is theft.
